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 Why is she like this?

My male budgie Pollito is uhm well ************ on one of his toys and he's ready to mate but Pichi won't let him go anywhere. She is a year old he will be a year old in 2 months. Spring is coming up. She gets "romantic" every now and then but doesn't acknowledge him when he wants to court her. Is there anything I can do to help him out with this??

Given the fact your male budgie is not yet even at the very minimum required age to breed and your female is not showing any interest in him, it would be best to hold off on breeding.
By encouraging a young pair to breed who is not yet mentally mature for the task, you run much higher risks of having problems. The first one being premature clutch abandonment.
For now it really is best to remove the nest box or any other nesting sites from the cage and give more time for your budgies to grow and bond.

Wasn't your Pichi bullying Pollito not so long ago? Bugies who display a violent nature should not be put to breeding. This is a very serious matter, because the violence can heighten during breeding and the whole experience can very well end in tragedy.

In order to be better prepared, you should take the time to read the articles on breeding and the sticjy threads here at this section of Talk Budgies.

You can start with this one: https://talkbudgies.com/budgie-breedi...s-new-old.html


EDIT: From looking at your past posts, you don't seem to possess basic knowledge on the species nor have the required experience in budgie ownership in order to be able to fully assist a potential breeding pair and eggs/chicks.
Please refrain from breeding and learn as much as you can before making the decision to breed budgies in the future. Remember the very lives of the breeding pair and any chicks are depending on you and on your ability to properly care for them.

Stephanie,

I've sent you a Private Message which details my concerns about your apparent disregard of advice you've previously been given with regard to separating Pichi and Pollito.

This forum's goal is to promote the best practices for the health and well-being of budgies.

If you want what is best for your birds, then you are in the right place to learn those things.
This includes following the advice of those who have knowledge and experience with regard to the situations you have described.

Please separate Pichi from Pollito as you were advised previously and recognize that with Pichi's aggressive behavior she should never be bred.

If you do not take these matters seriously, you are setting your budgies up for an "emergency" situation when Pichi injures another budgie.

Breeding budgies should never be considered without a good basic knowledge of budgies and their behaviors followed by extensive research prior to considering accepting the responsibility and commitment necessary for ethical breeding.

I am following what people have answered. They are seperated. I was just wondering again if there was anything that could be done from my part because yesterday for the first time I saw my poor Pollito ************ on one of his toys so I just felt so bad for him. He's always trying to kiss Pichi and running after her and I just... I just wish there was more I could do. I also bought two more budgies, Bebé and Rayito, but they are kept away from Pichi and Pollito. They are both 2 1/2 months old and they are getting along good so I don't have any concerns for them. Thank you though for messaging me smile emoticon

Don't worry about Pollito -- his behavior is quite normal for a male budgie.
Some budgies have stronger urges than others.
What Pollito is doing is not hurting him and there is no reason to feel "sorry" for him.

I'm sure Pichi is much happier now that she doesn't have to continually fend off Pollito's advances.

If you spend more time with Pollito working with him one on one, keeping him busy and ensuring he gets a lot of exercise, as well as limiting the amount of protein in his diet, that will help dampen his ardor somewhat.
