It is not uncommon for female budgies to continue laying eggs even when they do not have a mate or a male bird present. This behavior can be triggered by changes in the environment, such as increased daylight hours, hormonal changes, or the presence of nesting material.
It is possible that your female budgie is experiencing some hormonal changes that are causing her to lay eggs. However, it is concerning that she laid an egg with no shell, which is known as a “shell-less” egg. This can be a sign of a nutritional deficiency or other health issue.
It is important to make sure that your budgie is receiving a balanced diet that is appropriate for her age and activity level. Providing a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, high-quality pellets, and occasional treats can help to ensure that she is getting all of the nutrients she needs.
In addition, it may be a good idea to have your budgie examined by a veterinarian who specializes in avian medicine.
