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.

I asked awhile ago for members to identify my budgies gender and i was told she is a female(i have not had a cere color like this before so was unsure) she and the male get along very well and i have breed before so i introduced a box to see what they would do. They go in and out alot but when it comes to mating it seems like the female is the more aggressive one and trys to mount the male, has anyone seen this before? i put a pic of the female in to ensure she is the correct gender. Thank you for any help!

The bird pictured is a female.

The purpose of the forum is to promote best practices for the health and well-being of budgies. I do not believe you are ready to breed at this time.

Breeding isn't just a matter of putting a nest box on the cage and I recommend you remove it immediately. To breed responsibly, one should have a very strong background in the understanding and care of budgies followed by extensive research into the up-to-date best practices.

Hi there,

I did take a look at your older thread and from the first photo you have posted, the colour on the cere seemed mainly whitish and this indicates that your budgie is a female.
These two photos you posted are also the same you posted on your older thread, later on.
If possible, post updated pictures of your budgie, a close up pic showing the whole beak/cere area taken in natural lighting.
The ceres on certain recessive pied budgies are more difficult to tell the gender,that's why better quality photos are needed in order to try to see the real colour on the cere.

What colour do you see in person? How old is this budgie and has the cere matured to the dark brown colour indicating your budgie is in breeding condition?

If the cere has a uniform pinkish colour, then your budgie is a male.
The ceres on recessive pied males will not mature into the royal blue colour, they will keep the immature pinkish/purplish colour.

At this point in time, it would be best to discourage any breeding attempts and remove the nest box.

Thanks for the replies! Just to confirm i have had breeding experience before this and am not doing it to make money but i do not have much knowledge on budgies with the pink cere as all my previous birds have had blue or brown ceres, i know my previous post was abit short but i was just trying to high light the question about her behavior. Both are in breeding condition, female (fluffy) is 2 and the male (jimmy) is 3, they both enjoy each others company and play quite abit. I noticed that they were close and was curious to see if there was a chance they would breed, i have a large cage for budgies so room is not an issue, i understand that alot of people slap a box on the cage and request help afterwards when they are unsure whats happening. If nothing happens soon i will take off the box and let them continue enjoying their time with each other. I have included pics to show her at this age point. Thank you for taking time to chat and share you knowledge on this subject. Any more input would be awesome

From the last two pictures you posted, I actually think your recessive pied budgie is male

I'm sure you do have experience in breeding, but it's best to be sure there is a thorough understanding of all aspects of budgies during the process, which is why we recommend reviewing the breeding threads and articles, at least

It is hard to be sure from those pics but I am thinking male also! If the actual colour is a translucent pink/purple then you have a boy. If it is chalky white then you have a hen, who is not in breeding condition so probably not in the mind frame (or physical condition) to be allowing successful 'advances' anyway.

Thank you for all the help and information! I have taken the box off and let them go back to playing for now. Am currently doing research on breeding for next time if i get a female.
