Yes, the egg wouldn't be fertile but the presence of a male isn't necessary for eggs to be produced. Here's a synopsis of egg binding for you: http://www.vcahospitals.com/main/pet-health-information/article/animal-health/egg-binding-in-birds/863 Please let me know if your parakeet's symptoms suggest egg binding.
