The question here should be are you truly ready to breed your budgies?

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

Budgies need to be properly conditioned and on adequate breeding diet before being set up to breed. If you have only witnessed a sporadic mating, this doesn't mean that eggs will soon follow. If you are not yet completely ready, it would be best to remove the nest box and take the necessary measures to discourage further breeding behaviour: https://talkbudgies.com/budgie-breedi...want-eggs.html


Also for your budgies' overall welfare and safety it would be best if you replaced that rope perch for a new one, since it's already quite frayed.

The purpose of this forum is to promote the best practices for the health and well-being of budgies.

As such, we prefer not to provide advice regarding breeding unless we are certain the individual asking the questions is experienced with budgies, has the proper knowledge of best practices and has done extensive research regarding breeding prior to making the commitment to accept the responsibility.

How long have you had budgies?
Do you know if the pair is related?
How old are they?
How much time have you spent researching breeding practices?

Please be so kind as to answer the questions above and we will direct you to the additional links which may be helpful to you.

Okay.

I've had budgies before and i have it now too i have medium expirence with them
The breeding is whole new for me.

The female budgie is almost 2 year old and the male budgie is 1 year old

They are not related, no.

I've read few to couple of articles and watched youtube videos about how to breed past months

And how many chance is there that I'll see eggs about few days by their first mating?? There wasn't a nestbox in the cage but they did it anyways?

What they did then was a sporadic, recreational mating.
The chances are slim to none. It takes consistent and daily matings for that to happen as in 3 - 4 times per day on average.

You will find all the detailed information and helpful advice by reading the stickies here at the Breeding section.

You should also be prepared in terms of having an avian vet to go to, in case of an emergency with with any of your budgies, especially your female and her potential chicks.
