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 Disco & Roxy

Hi, I have set up a nesting box in Disco and Roxys cage. I had to remove Sky from the cage as she was getting very aggressive when Roxy wanted to go near it, and have moved the nesting box cage to a quite end of the house. The box has been open now for 2 weeks and still no sign of any eggs. Roxys cere is dark brown and looks like she is in prime condition, Discos cere not so bright blue.? When I had them in the dining room Disco was keen as to mate with Roxy, now everything seems to of stopped. We are coming up to Spring time here in NZ but the mornings are still quite cold. Why do you think everything has come to a halt? I read they need to be in a quite undisturbed room??

Hi and welcome back to the forums!

Before allowing your budgies to breed, there are a few aspects you need to consider. By looking at your posting history, you don't yet seem to have the required experience nor a good, solid knowledge on the species in order to safely breed your budgies and at this point it would be best to remove the nest box and discourage breeding: https://talkbudgies.com/budgie-breedi...want-eggs.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 read these links: https://talkbudgies.com/budgie-breedi...s-new-old.html

https://talkbudgies.com/budgie-breedi...r-budgies.html

If it's your wish to breed your budgies, you can do so later on, when you are fully prepared and this is done by studying the species day by day, to watch your budgies behaviours and truly get to know the species through the daily interactions you have with them.
The wealth of information found on the several articles and stickies will be very useful in terms of ensuring your budgies have the very best care and diet in order to be in top physical health to be put to breeding in the future.

I agree with aluz.

It is extremely important to ensure you have the basic knowledge and experience followed by extensive research into the best practices before considering taking on the responsibility of breeding.

Thank you for your reply, I have been researching for at least 12 months and have a breeder on hand if I need any help. I just thought I would share Disco and Roxys progress with you all.

I'm glad that you've researched extensively as well as ensuring you have extra help from a seasoned breeder! It's always lovely to hear when the correct steps are taken to ensure a healthy first clutch

I hope everything will go well for them--it's hard to say precisely why they aren't "in the mood" currently.

It's important to never keep multiple pairs or other budgies in a breeding cage. Colony breeding, as you have seen, in which several birds are in a breeding cage, does not work due to aggression between birds, added stress and the possibility of other birds killing the chicks.

Be sure to read this link: https://talkbudgies.com/budgie-breedi...s-dangers.html

Also, although you have researched already, the forums have some of the best resources on breeding, which all can be accessed here for reference. It's worth reviewing them

I have spent the morning playing budgie sounds to them being social birds they may be missing the activity of the family buzzing about and there cage mate Sky. Time will tell.

Here in NZ many breeders are finding the budgies breeding madly due to the strangely warm and wet winter we have had. If they are used to being with others and you have now moved them to a quiet place that may be the problem. Budgies prefer to breed in flocks, so whilst it is best not to let them breed in the same cage as others they definitely prefer being able to see and here other budgies.

Default Whats ment to be.

Thanks Tonic
Iv moved the other hen up to the room I have the breeding cage in. The male in the breeding cage cere has just about turned a brown colour, its so dark blue. Don't get me wrong he is definitely a male. But still no eggs! Whats ment to be will be. Purchasing a small patio aviary so that will be nice for the birds to have come summer.

Default Roxys cere has turned white

Hi so the nest box has been in for about a month. Disco is only just starting to enter the box, Roxy spending more time in and out of box. Question, why has her cere turned white from dark brown ?

The cere turning white means that she is currently out of breeding condition.
From your description, it seems Roxy wasn't properly conditioned and that's why her cere prematurely went from the dark brown colour to the current white.
At her current state, she's not ready to go through with a successful breeding.
