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.
I'm all ready to start breeding my fluffs. I'm just trying to find a good time to put in the nest. Are they in breeding condition? also what kind of babies would they be likely to have? Hes a mauve spangle and she is a light green dominant pied.

I'm sorry, but if you don't know if your budgies are in breeding condition, then you are in no way ready to breed them.
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. This requires extensive research and an openness to continual learning.
How much research have you done so far?
How old are the budgies you currently have?
Do you know if they are related?
What conditioning diet have you been providing them?
An individual needs to have a good background in basic budgie care and then do extensive research into the proper breeding practices prior to making the decision to accept the responsibility of the commitment required for breeding responsibly and ethically.
Great advice from Deborah...what I have always asked folk to do before they invite any animal into their home and lives, is to Research that animal and then some - to the point of 'overkill'...it takes a lot out of the parent to raise any animal, they require a lot more nutrition before hand, in order to be in the best optimal condition to undertake parenthood...you have a duty of care to the future babies, as well...my best advice is to delay any thought of breeding your budgies, until you have more information on all aspects of budgie care and breeding practices...
