Default Father trying to mate with daughter

I have a bonded pair of budgies. male and female. They've been bonded for 3 to 4 years now. They had a baby 1.5 years ago and had a female. I still have all 3. a happy little family lol
For the first time I saw the father mating with the daughter. I don't want this to continue. I have a coconut in there but I just took it out.

I have all 3 in one cage but they are free all day. I only close them up at night to sleep.
Should I get another male for the young female? would that help?
Not sure what to do.

the original mother and father (bonded pair) are still together. They love each other.

thank you

The best thing to do is to separate them into their own cages. You can keep them next to each other so they still have each other's company, and when they are out you need to keep a very close eye on them, or better yet, let them out separatly.

Removing the coconut was good, as you do not want to encourage this behaviour. Anything that can be mistaken for a nesting spot will need to be removed.

Now that spring is approaching, the days are getting longer and budgie hormones are starting to ramp up. You can also cover the cages to reduce daylight hours and help reduce hormones and breeding behaviour.

FaeryBee will pop in shortly and she has a great link for "When we don't want eggs".

Do you think getting another male will help? I mean so she has a mate.

She doesn't need to have a mate to be happy and healthy.

Please do not get another male.

The female does not need to have a mate and there is no guarantee that another bird will get along well with the ones you already have.

Each time you add or subtract a bird from a flock the flock dynamics change.

It is very important that you follow all the steps to prevent any breeding.

Putting the daughter in a separate cage and giving her individual out-of-cage time would be best.

Never put any items in the cage that can possibly be used as a nesting site.
Limit the amount of protein in your budgies' diet.
Most importantly, limit the amount of daylight hours they are getting to no more than 8 hours per day.
