Budgie Breeding 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.

Default Will Tame Budgies Breed?

I recently heard that tame budgies won't breed, or at least are very difficult to. Is this true? Right now I only have one pair (am planning on getting one more female and 2-3 more males within the next few weeks) and both are not tame. One was adopted, and is a bit more used to humans walking around the cage and changing food bowls, and the other is from a pet store is a little more jumpy, but calming down as he gets more used to me moving around the cage and feeding them and such.

I wanted to slowly tame them to at least the point where I can put my hand near them without them freaking out and flying all over the cage, maybe even to where I can have them perch on my finger and/or have some free flight time in my bird-proofed closet. Can I do this and still have them breed in a few months? The female (adopted) is still on the younger side, so I was wondering if I could work with them on this in the few months before I can start encouraging them to breed? Thanks!

Yes, tamed budgies can breed, in fact it is a plus to have them tamed as they will trust you when you have to check the eggs/chicks and when you need to clean the nest box. Over the years I have had budgies of all kinds of tameness, semi tamed, tamed, super tamed and they all mated and raised their families well.
