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 My first post - any advice is appreciated

Long story cut short....

Found a male budgie, named it batman. got intouch with a breeder, said batman needed a friend, so got a male budgie called Robin. Same day, Batman died so we went back to the breeder and got another male called Rocky.

Robin started acting strange, thought he was poorly until he laid an egg. Then he ate it. laid another, I removed it and borrowed a nesting box off of breeder. he laid another in the nest box, ate that too.

ok I'll stop referring to him as a "he" now...

laid a fourth egg... then a fifth... then all the way to egg number 10. so we have 7 eggs in the nest box. 4 are fertile.

one pipped the shell yesterday... but only cracked it, no hole as of yet.... started chirping in the shell and is a bit more cracked but no obvious hole...

any help, tips or advise are greatly appreciated! no matter how big or small the info is. Female is a white and blue pied. male is a Spangled blue. Batman was a lutino

Hi! to Talk Budgies

It is very unfortunate you were not given the proper information regarding your birds' gender.
I'm surprised the breeder didn't know the "male" he sold you was a female.
Hopefully the two birds that bred are not related.

When the second egg was laid, rather than adding a nest box to the cage, a better option would have been to dispose of the egg and actively discourage breeding at that time.

However, given that your budgie now has a clutch with 4 viable eggs, please carefully review the information in the Budgie Breeding Articles section of the forum. They should answer most of your questions.

Talk Budgie Articles//Budgie Breeding

If you have specific questions after reviewing all of the information in those articles, please post the questions in this thread and we will try to help you.

Additionally, please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.
