Ask Dr Claire

I recently got two budgies Male and female with 1 egg, it’s been 2 days and female is not sitting on egg and she looks as though she will lay again

I really need more information to be able to help here. Female budgies don’t tend to incubate their eggs until they’ve passed the whole clutch  – so if this is a fresh egg passed she may be able to pass more, and then will incubate them after the whole clutch is passed.
It is a problem if she’s been incubating that egg… and now she’s not. If she is inexperienced she may not know exactly what she’s doing.
If you’d like to chat in person, you can get a vet on a live video call or start a chat to discuss in more detail now.

We’re here to help!

Chat soon,
