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 Help! 2 of my juvenile birds want to breed!

I have had my 2 female parakeets for 8 months now. Neither of them have a tan cere yet, but rather, both have blue ones with white rings around their nostrils. They have both picked a mate already, a male that follows them around and sings to them, and they preen him. Neither one has tried to mate yet, but it's very clear they would if I gave them a box. Should I let them mate? The males are 2 years and 6 years old, but both girls look to be only 10 months old.

Hi there,
It really is not advisable to breed a budgie who is below 1 year of age. In fact if you see things are progressing when it comes to mating/nesting, the best thing to do would be to separate your girls from your boys till their hormones get more under control.
Apart from not giving them a proper nest box, do no give them access to hiding areas nor spots that they could potentially use for nesting.

If in the future breeding is something you would like to allow your budgies, then for safety reasons you would have to separate each pair into their own cage in order to avoid problems. There is a ton of information on the stickies about this subject and I would also suggest you to go through them if you plan on breeding your budgies in the future.

Under age and over age both limits are there for both male and female when breeding

One of your male is over age for breeding please do read the stickies suggested by Aluz regarding breeding
