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 Breeding condition

Hey everyone,
I have a male and a female budgie, and the female is 10 months old now, while the male is like 14 months. They are bonded, as the male feeds the female pretty much every day and they court, but they donít preen each other. Anyways, whenever they are courting the female gets in her mating position, by lifting her tail all the way up and keeping her head low.
Recently, she got really broody too. It was visible of her cere turning brown, but it wasnít completely brown. Just a little spot on the upper area of her cere was still blue. Not even a week past and her cere is turning blue again. She never gets a full brown cere, and when it starts te become brown, it doesnít stay so for very long. What could be the reason for this?

She is still young and may not be mature enough to stay in the breeding mode. Having said that, many hens never get the fully brown and crusty cere and still become hormonal,show all the other necessary behaviour signs, and go on to breed well. If her cere appears to be showing that it can and does go brown then I would assume the issue is to do with her youth.

Your hen is too young to breed. If there is any nestbox, make sure to remove it right away. Changing the cage perches, feeders, and toy positions will also help break her out of breeding mode, as will limiting the daylight hours to 8 hours only. Please take steps to discourage them from mating.

There are tips in the Stickies in the breeding section as well. If you have any other questions, please ask .

Your hen is too young to be bred at this time.
You need to be doing everything possible to discourage 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. This requires extensive research and an openness to continual learning.

Rearranging their cage 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 cage.

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

A Heartfelt Plea to All Members
