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.

Would it be a good idea to seperate the hens from the cocks?
I know that hens are almost always willing to mate. Not worried about eggs, but just being sexed to death! Like chickens.
I learned that budgie hens can hold sperm for two weeks. When you put a pair together, you should toss the eggs that are laid in the first two weeks. They might be different cock.

I personally keep my boys and girls in different flights

I find that they get along better when they are with other birds of their own sex, and as you mentioned the option of accidental mating or inbreeding is eliminated when you keep your sexes separate.

It is definitely true that sperm can survive in a hen for at least two weeks. If you do keep both sexes together though it is still rather easy to know who is the father of any given chicks by separating your chosen hens or breeding pairs from other males during the conditioning period

I have never noticed that males take advantage of females when they are kept together thought, if a hen doesn't want to mate there will be nothing the cock can do about it
