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 Infertility

Hey everyone
I might have a stupid question but is there any rule to a male/female budgie become infertile? I have 3 budgies and 2 of them a male and female started to have a great time with each other (if you know what I
Mean) but they are 5 years old. Is it possible for them to have chicks or are they infertile?
I'm confused because the pet shop assistant told me something about infertility years ago.

Budgies over 5 years old can breed and have clutches but should not.
Allowing budgies 4 years or older to breed puts both the adult birds and any potential offspring at high risk.

Your budgies should NOT be allowed to breed.
Keeping two males and a female caged together when they are in condition is a recipe for disaster.
The males can become aggressive and one or more of the budgies may be severely injured or killed.

I recommend you separate the female and do everything possible to discourage breeding.

Rearranging the cages frequently, and limiting the light they get to 8 hours a day will help tremendously.
Please be sure you never put a nest box or anything that could be used as a nesting site in their cages.

When they come into condition, limit the amount of protein in their diet at that time.

I don't think separation is the solution. They would hate it. Because they love each other. Anyone with other idea?

They still should not be bred. Remove the extra budgie to another cage to prevent fighting, and rearrange the cage and remove the nestbox for the couple in their own cage.

It's very important that you don't let these budgies breed. It is dangerous to their health.

Anytime it is two birds of one gender and one of another gender, they need to be separated when they come into condition for the health and well-being of the birds.

Them "hating" it isn't the issue - the issue is what is best for the birds.

Put the cage with the single budgie in a different room and play music in both rooms to muffle the sounds that carry from one room to another.

Should I remove the female budgie who the male budgie is trying mate with to another cage if there are 2 females and 1 male? They don't fight.
What do you mean by rearranging the cage? Should I do it every day?

The other question is how long should we keep them separated for?

About the fight :You mean the problem is only the fight between the female chicks?

You can keep them separated indefinitely, and they should eventually become adjusted to it and learn to like their new living arrangements. Or, you can separate them when the females ceres start to turn brown, which indicates they are coming into breeding condition.

No, it’s not necessary to rearrange the cage daily. There is no “set” number of days in which to do it. You can periodically change the branch and you positions within the cage weekly or a couple times a month. You don’t have to do a “full” change weekly. Maybe just change a perch or move toys around.

With some birds, you’ll find that when they don’t have a nestbox or any toys that they can hide in, they will not even get the urge to breed. But because yours have already been mating, it might be harder to break the habit, which is why separation is being recommended here.

Remove the single female to her own cage. Leave the two who seem more like the “couple”. But follow the guidelines below:

Shorten daylight hours (cover 3 sides of cage with dark cloth for enough hours of sleep), no nestboxes, rearrange surroundings frequently, limit high protein foods except when molting. These are good guidelines to discourage breeding.
