Swoop and Slugfest have finally come out of Quarantine! And I think I will attempt to breed them, just to give me something to do between breeding my tiels, LOL. There's so much to learn, and even though budgies have a lot of similarities to cockatiels, which I've been breeding since 2001, There's a LOT of differences!
I'm currently trying to get Slugfest and Swoop into breeding condition and onto something other than seed and egg food. Slugfest's cere is bright and blue - no doubt he's ready! However Swoop seems to be coming OUT of condition. Not a problem. I can wait for when she's ready. However, I'm wondering how long it takes for the hen to come back into breeding condition after she's come out of it? My searches haven't come up with an answer. Or I've missed it.
Thanks for your help ahead of time!
