Default Buddgies and nestbox problem.

Hi friends,
I have 4 buddgies in one cage.2 couples!
At 1st i installed nesting box.blue female occupied it. White female showed some interest in the nest but eventually gave up.
Then i installed 2nd nest box. Now white female is not intrested in both nest boxes.i catch my white female and put her inside 2nd nestbox but she runs out of it. On the other hand blue female goes inside 2nd box too.though she spends most of her time inside 1st box.
There are no eggs in the both the nestbox.blue female till now is not spending night inside any nestbox.
White female and her male are not matting as yet. Though blue female and her male are matting.

I wonder what can this lead to? Will my blue female settle for one nestbox.. and will my white female understand 2nd nestbox is for her?
Any advice or anything will help?

About my cage it is perfect for four birds or even more to reside.
Next boxes are opposite to each other.

The purpose of the Talk Budgies Forum is to promote the "best practices" in care for the optimum health and well-being of budgies.

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.

Please refer to the information in these two links:

A Heartfelt Plea to All Members
Guidance regarding Breeding Advice Threads

Colony breeding (which means more than one breeding pair in a cage) is never recommended nor condoned by this forum due to the inherent risks and dangers.

Why individual breeding cages are so important

You got your budgies in April according to your first post and were advised at that time what to do to avoid accidental breeding.
You indicated in your initial post when you asked about their genders that you thought the budgies were probably 2 months old. Your budgies are too young to be bred.
Why do you feel it necessary to breed your birds? You have neither the knowledge nor experience at this time to do so.
Most budgies will be much healthier if they are never bred.
This is especially true if the budgies came from a big-box pet store.
How old is each budgie?
Are you certain none of them are related? You had three females and one male and were encouraged not to house the male with the females.
Did you "exchange" one of the females to get another male or did you buy additional birds?

You've been a member of Talk Budgies since April 2018 and from your initial thread is appears this is your first time owning budgies.

Have you taken the time to read the stickies at the top of each section of the forum as well as the Budgie Articles as recommended in the welcome message you received upon joining the forum?

I strongly recommend you remove both nest boxes from the cage and do everything possible to discourage breeding.
The very best thing for you to do at this point in time is to separate the males into a separate cage and put it in a different room than the room where the females are caged. They need to be kept separated until you are absolutely certain all four budgies are out of breeding condition.

After that, Rearranging their cage frequently, and limiting the light they get to 8 hours a day will help tremendously. Please be sure you never put a nest box or anything that could be used as a nesting site in their cage.

When they come into condition, limit the amount of protein in their diet at that time.

Please be a responsible owner and follow the best practices for the sake of your birds.

Again, I ask that you 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.

Truly, the very BEST advice anyone can offer you is to take the time to read ALL of the stickies throughout the various Talk Budgie forums as well as the Budgie Articles we have posted.

These are great resources for Talk Budgie members and have a wealth of reliable information which will assist you to learn the best practices in caring for your budgies for their optimal health and well-being.

You've been given great advice.

Apart from your budgies being too young to breed, you don't seem to have the required experience needed to breed your birds successfully.

Colony breeding is never recommended due to its many risks, as mentioned above.

The links provided by FaeryBee will help explain the forum's stance on the subject and also will explain the best practices for budgie care.

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask as we'd love to help.

I’m sure this wasn’t what you expected or wanted to hear, but we hope you understand our viewpoints, after reading the links above from FaeryBee.

This is a great place to learn about all aspects of budgies first. As it’s always important to know everything about the animals you keep before thinking about breeding. Stick around and we’ll help you learn what great little pets your budgies can be, without having to breed!

Please take the time to read the links and follow the advice given.

Breeding isn't necessary and you can do more harm to your birds and the babies by breeding when inexperienced.
