How long have you owned budgies?
What research have you done into general budgie care and budgie breeding?

If you read some of the stickies on budgie breeding, you'll probably get a better understanding of why your budgies are unhappy & why they don't want to breed.

I'm not a breeder so can't comment there but I wanted to suggest you give your budgies some toys to play with. Budgies love all kinds of toys (don't give them mirrors though) and you can find a huge variety online and in stores.

I'm sure they'll love that. Get a variety and rotate them often so the budgies don't get bored.

Hi! to Talk Budgies

This forum promotes the "best practices" in the care of budgies for their optimum health and well-being.

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.

You indicate you've had your budgies for 4 months which is not long enough to have gained the knowledge and experience necessary for breeding ethically and responsibly.

Why exactly do you think your birds need to breed?
Most budgies are happier and healthier if they are never bred.

How old is each bird?
How many males and how many females are in the cage?
Are you absolutely certain none of these budgies are related?

Please refer to the information in these threads:

https://talkbudgies.com/budgie-breed...s-new-old.html
https://www.talkbudgies.com/budgie-b...e-threads.html

I strongly recommend you remove the nestbox from the birds' cage immediately. We never recommend "colony" breeding due to the inherent risks and dangers.

Additionally, please do not have your cage located outside unless you are right there with it.

https://www.talkbudgies.com/articles...important.html

Please take the time to read through all of the How To Guides, the FAQs and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

You'll find most of your basic questions about budgies and caring for them will have been answered after you've read through all of them.

For gender and/or mutation help - Lighting and Angle DOES matter

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them!

Good advice given above . Sorry if this isn’t what you were expecting to hear. If you are serious about learning about the best practices for keeping budgies, stick around for a while and learn .

We have all the resources here that you need in our Stickies at the top of each section; behavior, diet, housing, health care. We ask that all new members read these. You’ll find many answers to common questions.

Contrary to popular belief, budgies don’t have to be bred to be happy. In fact, breeding actually places a lot of physical and mental stress on them. Breeding takes an experienced owner who must know many details in all areas, such as preparation diet, how to select a pair which is appropriate for breeding, how to set up a cage (not colony style), what to monitor and look for in regard to laying and raising of chicks, and how to spot something that is wrong. Not to mention how to screen for suitable homes for the chicks, and accurately being able to answer any and all questions the new owners will have.

Many experienced bird owners never breed their budgies. There’s a lot to know to keep birds thriving as pets, without the added responsibility of breeding. However, if you have your reasons you’re absolutely set on breeding, stick around and learn. In 6 months or a year from now, if you take it upon yourself to learn all aspects, you can think about it then, and we’ll be here to help .

In the wild, animals breed out of necessity to carry on their species. In captivity, they actually have the ‘luxury’ of being pampered pets. If you remove the nestbox, add some toys, and even get an additional cage to place maybe 2 and 4 in each (even numbers, and don’t necessarily have to be male and female together), your budgies can be happy. I keep a male and a female who are happy in a large cage together, with their environment set up so that they don’t get breeding urges and sexual frustration. They’re just friends.
