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 Bonded pair not mating

Dear All .

So i have a male budgie since around 2 years and his name is tony. I bought him a female 6 month ago in attempt to breed them ( i have already done tons of research about breeding) . They took only one week to bond. Eversince, they have been feeding and kissing each other all the time but no mating occured . The female is 1 year old and is in breeding condition ( brown crusty cere ) . They have sufficient light and good nutrition. The female only shows interest in the nest box a for a couple of days and then starts ignoring it . So what would be the cause for them to not breed? the male is always courting here but she shows no interest in that . Should i give up and buy him a new female?

Hi there,

I'm glad you've done the proper breeding research! Just in case, here are the forum's breeding links. It's always good to review to ensure you're updated on all the best information!

Budgies are individuals and they don't mate just like clockwork when they are provided with a nestbox, a breeding diet, and a mate. It could be that they are not interested in breeding at this time. However, you should not get another budgie. That will not help.

Give them some time. Raising a family is a commitment that even budgies have to think about for a little bit sometimes.

I have just realized that the breeding cage is positioned on a wall where on the other of the wall there is a loud street . lots of car.noise and stuff . Could this be a turn off for them ? should i reposition the breeding cage in a more quiet room?

The first time I tried to breed my budgies was unsuccessful. However, a year later I changed a few things and bingo. Not sure if any of these will help, but thought I'd list them just in case.

The first time I bred them, I put the nestbox toward the bottom of the cage...the second time I put it high up and it worked better. I also purchased a supplement from Cute Little Birdies Aviary that aided in conditioning and helping them during the breeding process. I don't know what you're feeding yours right now, but it may not hurt to look into: https://www.cutelittlebirdiesaviary....r_Breeder.html

The first time I tried to breed mine, my male was also 2 and the female was also 1. Like Starling said, it could just be they need to mature a little more and wait another year.

Best of luck!
