|Budgerigars most easily breed in captivity when provided with a reasonable-sized nest box. The eggs are typically one to two centimeters long and are pearl white without any colouration if fertile. Female budgerigars can lay eggs without a male partner, but these unfertilized eggs will not hatch. When the female is laying eggs, her cere turns a crusty brown colour. A female budgerigar will lay her eggs on alternate days. After the first one, there is usually a two-day gap until the next. She will usually lay between four and eight eggs, which she will incubate (usually starting after laying her second or third) for about 21 days each.|
English Budgies are a fully domestic bird.
