Budgie BreedingBefore 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. Thread Description:How long does it take for a bonded pair to breed?
Just a bit curious today. I'm wondering how long it would take for a bonded pair to breed again under the correct conditions.
I'll state the scenario - A pair that has bred around 3 months ago, successfully, and you are to put the breeding box back on and increase daylight hours, give more vitamins, etc. How long under the correct circumstances would the two take to lay an egg?
I'm guessing a few weeks, but just want to hear your thoughts.
You are right in your guess. If all the requirements are met and the pair is properly conditioned, it should take them a few weeks.
Generally speaking, it's easier to do so when the pair is not a first timer.
In one of your previous threads, you have mentioned a chick who was displaying a more aggressive temperament: https://talkbudgies.com/budgie-behavi...ggression.html
If this was inherited from one of the parents, the chances for you to get more chicks with the same difficult temperament are higher.
For obvious reasons, it's not advisable to breed from budgies who have more of a violet or aggressive temperament/personality.
