Default Female budgie not entering the NestBox

Hey All!

So i have a first timer budgie pairs that i coupled around 12 days ago for breeding . I have done all the research outthere and yes i'm ready to breed them! . The male has a dark blue cere, and the female javing a chocolate brown one which means they are both ready to breed . They have been kissing, flirting, and feeding each other since a while now, but the female have never entered the nest box yet! .I think this is what is preventing them to mate . Is there i can encourage her to go inthere?

I'm not too educated on breeding budgies just yet since I am just started to research on it but in my opinion you should wait until you know the birds personalities first like I was told by one of the admins on here and also I think that after you learn what their personalities are like and they are a good pair for breeding you should let them decide when they are ready to breed don't "Make" them want to. It will just come naturally to them. But don't just take my advice. Wait for an admin to give you information because like I said I'm just now starting to research breeding budgies and all that!

Hi there,

I'm glad you've researched a lot about breeding so far If you've done at least a year's worth of research and have everything you need for them to have a successful clutch, well done!

JohnnyandJune has given great advice. It is very important to recognize that simply because you've provided them with everything they need to breed doesn't mean they will or want to currently.

Guidance regarding Breeding Advice Threads

How old are these budgies?
Are you certain they are not related?
How long have you owned these particular birds?
Are you certain their health and temperament are conducive to being good budgie parents?
Is this the first time both of these particular budgies have been bred?
Why are you so anxious for these budgies to breed?
Have you bred any other budgies in the past?
What conditioning diet do you have them on?
Are they in an individual breeding cage with a nest-box with a proper concave bottom?
Do you have an Avian Vet lined up in case there are problems?
Have you read all of the Budgie Articles and Stickies regarding breeding that are available here on the Talk Budgies Forum?

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.

Keep in mind that just because two budgies are in condition and get along well does not necessarily mean they want to be parents.
Your hen is obviously not ready if she has not entered the nest box. This is not something you should try to force under any circumstances.

Thanks all for the replies!

The male budgie is around 2 years old , and the female is 1.8 years old .They are not related . For the diet, its a mixed seed plus protein rich mix for birds . cuttlebons and a mineral block . Could the hen be not ready even though she has a dark brown cere?

It is quite possible the hen is not ready to breed.

I strongly recommend you do more research with regard to budgies in general prior to making the commitment to breed if you are planning to do so responsibly.

You only answered two of my questions.
Please answer all of the questions you overlooked in my prior post.

A hen may be in breeding condition and still not want to mate.

A woman who may be able to have children doesn't necessarily want children, right? Though it may be a natural thing for budgies to mate it's most likely that she doesn't want to have a clutch.

Please answer Faerybee's questions, this gives the forums more information and ability to help out if anything else goes awry.
