Did you have a pic? Are they still neon?very green like nearly neon!
My lovie eggs come in at 4 grams. I don´t know how much a budgie egg weighs, but I would guess at least 2, maybe more 3g.I'm gonna weigh her now and see if the weight has changed
For calcium, pellets as part of the diet help. You can also offer things like carrots, bok choy, kale, sweet potato, collared greens, broccoli, dill, basil, parsley.As @Zara said, make sure she has a cuttlebone or mineral block for extra calcium
They are alseep now so I'll get a photo in the morning but I think that they are slowly tonning down but she isnt pooping as often as I was trying to get a photo but I wasnt able to catch her pooping.Did you have a pic? Are they still neon?
She does have her harrisons pellets avalible at all times and ate all her chop this morning. Should I get a cuttle bone? They are also near a window and get good sunlight.For calcium, pellets as part of the diet help.

If your bird won´t eat veggies, sesame seeds are a good source of calcium, as are chia seeds.
15 minutes of direct (not through a window) sunlight will give your bird vitamin D3 to help absorb the calcium they are eating.
She did well today and I didnt see her on the bottom of the cage yet but usaully in the morning I find her there. Shes been active when hanging out with me but otherwise is just sleeping and preening her bottom.How is your bird doing today?
Cuttle bones are grooming tools, not nutrition.Should I get a cuttle bone?

Are you able to open the window while they are caged so the unfiltered sunshine gets to them?They are also near a window and get good sunlight.
Strung on toys, or attached to the cage for the smaller birds to rub their beaks and nails on is a nice little grooming addition.Cuttlebone as beak grooming aid, too!
Ha! Yes, I have two males, and I would have been off the vet immediately too! Lol! I've said it so many times, but I've learned sooooo much on this forumI am glad I followed this thread - my budgies are male, but if one of them had been female and I noticed these thing I would have been off to the vet ASAP!
Good to know a little more about how laying hens behave and look.
Lord please never let me end up with a female bird.
