    When my budgie laid it’s first egg, she was on the floor of the cage with her wings spread out like she was too warm then out came the little white egg so I went to the store and bought her a nesting box. I set the egg inside and she had 5 more eggs.

    there is a change in the poop size..when my budgie was about to lay an egg..her poop was 5 times bigger than the male ones..also she will have a little swollen bottom..some birds also have an egg bum .and when my bird lays an egg the male one sits with her in the box..so i know the egg is coming… good luck 🙂
