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 No Eggs Hatched - Qu. re Trying Again

My pair laid 5 eggs and went through the incubation period, but none of them hatched. They are still interested in mating.

should I put them back in the community cage for a while (how long?), or should I leave them in the breeding cage with the nest box?

Hi I have flagged your thread for our expert breeders to come on board, as soon as they are around I am sure we will hear from them. In my opinion I would be returning them to the aviary for a break and allowing them to regain strength and vitality. Is their first attempt at breeding? Also the age and general health, was a breeding diet given before separating them both? How old are the birds as well, all of these factors should be addressed before future attempts at breeding.

Thanks, Cathy. I look forward to some guidance from the breeding pros. Yes, they are eating lots of veggies and hard boiled egg. And yes, it is their first time around. They are both more than a year old, and are well-bonded. There is a lot of kissy-face and mating behavior going on (I have not witnessed actual mating, though - just lots of preliminary kissing and stepping.)

Hi

Like to know following to advice accordingly

Are they first timer and what is the age of this pair ?

Did you check the eggs for fertility ?

If fertile did the female incubate properly ?

Hi Julles,

Is this pair Lutino and Aqua from your breeding journal?
Given the fact there were possible issues related with dehydration during the incubation process and there is also the possibility that one of the parents has eaten 2 eggs (you mentioned two eggs have disappeared), I don't think at this point in time they are fit and ready to go through with a double clutch.
It would also be good to give your hen at least a few months of rest 4 - 6 months just to be more on the safe side in case something is lacking in her diet which needs to be addressed and to also help build the calcium levels.

Was this pair properly conditioned before being set up for breeding?
And have you seen any successful matings before and during the time the first clutch of eggs was laid?
This egg eating from the parents part is generally not a good sign and it would be good to rule out a possible lack of protein and calcium on their diet which could explain this behaviour. Another factor which could explain this is the lack of maturity of the parents.

If they are adults and on a good diet, which from your description they are and have access to an adequate breeding diet, then the egg eating can truly become an issue, making them not fit for parenting as the chances of this happening again is much higher.
