My daughter and I have 2 parakeets named 1st Charlie Brown (who we got first from a neighbor) and Blueberry who my Sister had bought for my niece and nephew. However, once Charlie and Blueberry meet they were inseparable. So, my Sister had no choice but to give Blueberry to us and she then bought 2 other budgies for them. Now, my dad's who has the 2 birds. I know, it's alot! But, we all love them even my mom who doesn't have any pets. So, when we got Charlie we thought it was girl, we new Blueberry was a girl from the pet store. Then this summer they began, well Blueberry began to lay eggs!!! However, we have a problem that we don't know how to solve!? I wonder if anyone has experienced or know what can be done to avoid Charlie breaking the eggs? I believe in our birds have the freedom of flying around etc. So, they each have their own spacious cages. Of course they visit each other's cage. Blueberry has her nesting box, which she is a good mommy bird and sits on them(so adorable!!!) Without having to keep Charlie locked up till the eggs hatch what else can we do!?!? Please forgive my long comment! Thank you!
