Aww thank you!! Those are all the photos I have of them together, I have individual photos of them that will be going up gradually when I get conformation of everyone being happy with their plumpkins.
It’s a good idea but I wouldn’t want to handle teeny tiny delicate budgie eggs with muckle gardening gloves on. I generally use a wooden spoon to distract her, she chomps into that instead of my fingers and I do what I need to do.

Once when I had budgies they did the exact same thing, found the grossest little house to lay their eggs.You might want to clean it just incase of mold or other things growing, she will most likely take the eggs back if she is comfortable with you.
Salt hates me! She’s a horrid, cussid little thing, but I love her to bits. She’s such a character but would bite my finger off if she could (and she’s made good attempts at it in the past). In s aying that, she’d probably take the eggs back out of sheer bloody-mindedness.
There’s isn’t mould as such growing in it… just .. lots of rotten wood… which she’s chewed up and made into a nest. I suppose she knows best, she wouldn’t have nested if she wasn’t comfortable? It’s the babies I worry about, delicate sensitive naked budgie babies hatching in that horrid damp hole. I’m going to go into my local pet shop today and ask their advice.
