Budgies can eat all parts of an egg, including the shell and yolk. Boiled, scrambled, or raw eggs are high in protein and give your budgie the energy it needs to molt and nest. Before feeding your bird, make sure you prepare the eggs properly.
The safest way to cook eggs for budgies is to boil them for at least 30 minutes and then mash and crush the shell. Salt, oil, and pepper are unhealthy for budgies, so do not add them to scrambled eggs. Raw eggs are safe for birds but must be clean and bacteria-free.
Budgies love eggs as a snack, but they should only eat them once or twice a week. During molting, nesting, or stress, egg food is a great protein source for budgies. However, you must feed your budgie fresh fruits, vegetables, seeds, and pellets. Seeds and pellets should be given daily, while fruits, vegetables, and soft foods should be given every other day or daily.
Budgie eggs are oval and 1-2 cm wide and 2-3 cm long in the wild. However, if your pet budgie lays eggs, they may differ. Budgies can lay up to eight eggs per clutch, which takes 18–20 days to incubate. If you do not want your budgie to lay eggs, keep the cage temperature between 60°F and 65°F and avoid feeding it high-fat foods like sunflower seeds.
Budgies can eat eggs, but only in moderation. Before feeding your budgie eggs, make sure they are properly prepared. A balanced diet of fresh fruits, vegetables, seeds, and pellets is essential for your budgie’s health. Make sure your budgie’s cage is comfortable and safe, and give it plenty of toys and perches to keep it entertained. As a budgie owner, you must also learn about these birds and their behavior to better care for them.
