Taking Care of Budgerigar (budgie / Love Bird) Eggs


Fertilization Of Egg :

Budgies are opportunistic breeders. The female budgie comes into "heat" i.e. becomes ready for breeding only when certain requirements are fulfilled. Check this post for Budgerigar (budgie / Love Bird) Breeding Tips. A lot depends on the environment for the breeding to be successful. Many a times in birds both the male and female may not be receptive or ready for mating at the same time. A fertilized egg is usually formed only when both are receptive and even this is not an assured point that all the eggs will be fertilized. The unfertilized egg will look like a normal egg.
