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.

They will do. Even in different rooms they will call to one another.
I would leave it at least two weeks and make sure you cut the daylight hours for them.

For cutting the daylight hours I can't really move them to a dark area. All I can do is put a blanket over the cage.

Putting a blanket over the cage earlier in the evening and uncovering it later in the morning will work to reduce daylight hours.

As Therm has explained to you, if a budgie does lay an egg, it isn't viable until it has been incubated for about 3 days time so by immediately removing the egg and disposing of it you are not "killing" a baby.

You must do everything possible to discourage breeding.
Please ensure you've carefully reviewed the information in the links attached.

I have two females that I house in one cage together with no problems.

I also have several males that are housed in a different cage together.
There have been times I have found it necessary to house some of the males separately from the others
to prevent fighting.
While it isn't always easy to find room for enough cages to accommodate what is best for the budgies, but as a responsible owner, we must find ways to do just that to ensure we are providing for their optimal health and well-being.

Housing your females and your males separately MAY mean the males will stop fighting.
It will definitely prevent mating.

However, if the males still fight after you remove the females into a different room of the house and keep the birds separated by gender, then the males will need to be housed in different cages from one another as well.

A heartfelt plea to forum members new and old - Talk Budgies Forums

So the 2nd day of moving my girls to the new cage. They still have not eaten any food since yesterday morning when they were in their old cage. They have had a few tiny squabbles. Nothing serious. They insist on being on the same perch next to each other which is confusing. Hopefully they start eating soon. Also the fighting has stopped completely from the boys.

Give the girls some time -- when you switch cages/rooms, the budgies sometimes have to settle into their new environment.

You can cover the top and three sides of their cage to help them feel more secure and play some music for them.

How often do parakaeets clear their crops?

It should only be a very occasional thing.
If one of your budgies is repeatedly clearing the crop, that can be a sign of infection and you need to have the bird seen by an Avian Vet.

Avian Vets have special training to determine the cause of symptoms resulting from illness or trauma.
This is important as "regular" vets will often overlook symptoms that are quickly obvious to an Avian Vet.
When you rely on anyone who has not had training in Avian diagnosis and care, you may be delaying effective treatment.
This can prolong suffering that may be avoidable.
The bird will often require a more intense, prolonged treatment with a poorer chance of full recovery than it would have if you seek prompt professional diagnosis and treatment at the first sign of illness.

Distinction between an Avian Vet and a Vet that "Will See Birds"

Having your budgie examined by an Avian Vet allows you to develop a good relationship with the vet in case your bird needs care for an injury or illness in the future. Additionally, it is always helpful for the vet to have a baseline for your bird to refer to should it need future treatment.

Try not to be too anxious about the birds settling.
Maybe give the girls a little millet if they enjoy it as a treat.

As already mentioned, it's like they have just been brought home again, and they have to get used to this new cage and the changes to what they were used too.

You've been given great advice about budgies clearing their crops.

So it's been almost two weeks since I separated the boys and girls. How will I know when it's a good time they can be put back together?I have been cutting the daylight hours everyday.
