Hi, Welcome to Talk Budgies!
The goal of this forum is to promote the best practices in the care of budgies for their optimum health and well-being.
Before breeding any species, it is important to learn as much about the animals, their personalities and the best practices to follow for responsible and ethical breeding prior to making the commitment to take on the responsibility.
This requires extensive research and an openness to continual learning.
Have you owned budgies before or is this your first time?
Do you have any experience in breeding budgies?
How old are the budgies you currently have?
Did they come from a Big Box Pet Store?
Do you know if they are related?
What conditioning diet have you been providing them?
Do you have a good Avian Vet?
Is there a responsible and ethical breeder near you that can serve as a mentor?
An individual needs to have a good background in basic budgie care and then do extensive research into the proper breeding practices prior to making the decision to accept the responsibility of the commitment required for breeding responsibly and ethically.
I'll be looking forward to your responses to the various questions asked.
Please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.
