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.

Hi there,

From looking at your past posts, you don't seem to yet possess the required knowledge and real life experience in budgie ownership in order to be fully prepared and ready to allow your budgies to breed.
Also the fact that you have one male housed with three different females isn't good either, as this can potentiate vicious fighting between the females.
In extreme cases, the fighting can end in tragedy.
Just because your budgie is mature, it doesn't mean he is ready to breed.
Budgies can mature as soon as they reach 6 months of age, but they should only be bred after reaching adulthood and that's past 1 year old.

Breeding in a colony setting (having multiple breeding pairs sharing the same cage/aviary) isn't recommended either, due to the many inherent dangers, not just the vicious fights that can result in severely injured or dead birds, but also the abandonment of the eggs/chicks or even broken eggs and dead chicks, not to mention the higher risks of inbreeding and all the health issues that entails.
https://talkbudgies.com/budgie-breedi...s-dangers.html

The decision to breed comes with a whole lot of responsibility and commitment, the lives of the breeding pair(s) and the chicks are depending on you and the response you give if/when faced with adversity.
Things like being able to tell if your breeding pair is in good health and top physical condition to go through breeding; when a hen is expecting an egg or if she is showing the first signs of being egg bound; when a chick is having developmental problems, not being fed or showing signs of dehydration;
when there is aggression, abandonment and neglect of the chicks and it's solely up to you to feed and raise the chicks. The ability to detect early on and solve these issues can truly make a difference on the outcome of your breeding journey.

Please check this link: https://talkbudgies.com/budgie-breedi...s-new-old.html

It would be best for you to remove all nesting pots or other nesting areas and take your time in learning and getting to know the species by closely watching the interactions between your budgies, to read and interpret their body language and behaviours.
It will also be very beneficial if you try to work on forming a trusting bond with your budgies, this will also make a future breeding venture much easier.
Please follow the recommendations on this link: https://talkbudgies.com/budgie-breedi...want-eggs.html

The wealth of information found on the several articles and stickies here at the Breeding section will also be extremely helpful when later on you feel you are prepared to safely breed your budgies.

the male budgie is more than one year

and my females never fight with each other
because I raised my three females at once when they were 3 months old

and my females are also more than one year and in peak breeding condition

In this thread, it seems you had a problem with one of your females:
https://talkbudgies.com/budgie-behavi...ards-male.html
The last post you made on this very thread, you mentioned your budgies were 6 months old and they were mating.
There seems to be incorrect information, given the fact this thread is less than one month old.
Please REMOVE all nesting pots and discourage any breeding.

When budgies are in a colony setting and there is not an even ratio of males to females, the chances are much higher of problems arising, where in the case you are currently on, the females will fight with each other for the male and also for a chosen nest. This can even happen when there is a balanced number of males and females.

Even if your budgies were all adults and in good condition, that doesn't mean you necessarily have to breed them.
Like I said before, when a person doesn't have a good knowledge of the species combined with real life experience in budgie ownership, it's not at all advisable to prematurely jump into breeding.

I completely agree with aluz.

The purpose of this forum is to promote the best practices for the health and well-being of budgies.
It is the opinion of the staff that, at this time, you are neither experienced nor knowledgeable enough to be considering breeding.

I urge you to take the time to read the information in the threads below:

https://talkbudgies.com/budgie-breedi...s-new-old.html

https://talkbudgies.com/general-budgi...ng-forums.html

https://talkbudgies.com/news-about-fo...m-members.html

Please be advised that our staff and/or experienced members will not give advice regarding breeding when it is not in the birds' best interest.

Please remove the nest boxes and heed the advice you have been given at this time.
