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 Male hopelessly trying to get the female attention!!

So I have a pair budgie for over a year now, and they’re in breeding age (about 2 years old). They are doing very well together, he is feeding her and they scratch each other heads and everything. 2 weeks ago the female cere started to turn brown. So they’re in breeding condition, and the male is trying hopelessly to make love with her, but she never lets him. Recently the male started to mate with the perches on the cage a lot, and the female is spending a lot of time on the opening of the nest box(not inside). So I’m concerned that she will lay infertile eggs because she doesn’t let him do it. I mean he feed her and everything but when he wants to do it she try to fly away!! So what do you guys suggest me to do?

Why specifically are you wanting to breed your budgies?
Budgies can live together very happily without mating and most members should never try to breed their birds.

An individual needs to have a good background in basic budgie care and then do extensive research into the proper breeding practices prior to making the decision to accept the responsibility of the commitment required for breeding responsibly and ethically.

A Heartfelt Plea to All Members

How much research have you done with regard to breeding?
Have you read all of the Budgie Articles and Stickies in the Talk Budgies Forum on the topic?
Are you certain the birds are not related?
Do you have them on a proper conditioning diet at this time?

Hey, first I want to thank you for your concerns about those lovely feathers friends!! I know that some people breed them in a really bad way. Just to sell them as fast as possible.
I want to assure you that I have read almost everything about budgies and other birds, not only for breeding but for everything
And, Yes they are not related, though they both have the exact mutation. However, I got them from different breeders so no worries they arenít related.
I want to breed them because I have had couple of budgies in the past years and I have never tried to breed them. However, now Iím trying because I have a really big room that have 5 budgies and 1 lovely cockatiel in it, and because Iím in love with them and their beautiful colors and I have the time for them. and have the right space and conditions for them. Also I want to make it clear (Iím not breeding them to eventually sell them) I would never want anyone near them. Specially that most people buy the birds for small children, which can cause serious damage to these little lovey birds (itís just my opinion that children shouldnít have such little birds).
And yes they are in a really healthy diet, not only now but since I got them.

So can someone please help me with my original question

Also I think that if he keeps trying to mate with the perch he will get sores on his down area

I'm assuming you have the two budgies in an individual breeding cage with a nest box with a concave bottom and are giving them egg food, calcium supplements, and vegetables in addition to their high quality seed mix and pellets.

Abundant, high energy foods will encourage breeding behavior.

Make sure the budgies are getting plenty of daylight -- a good 12 hours of light is important to stimulate breeding instincts.

Make sure your female has shredding materials and soft wood to chew.

Be sure you give them some privacy as budgies often prefer to mate when they aren't being watched.

You can't force your budgies to mate If you're doing everything FaeryBee included above, then there's nothing more you can do - if she's not receptive to his advances, then she doesn't want to mate. If this behaviour doesn't change, then remove the nest box and give them a rest for a little while. You can always try later.

Thatís a good idea, I think I will give them some time and if nothing happens I will remove the nest-box.
