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.

Exclamation I caught my budgies mating (I can't have any more budgies!)

Hi,

I brought two new birds last month to keep my old budgie company after his friend died and at the time I believed they were both males as the hen had a light blue cere.

She now has a dark brown cere, I heard a commotion about 1 hour ago and I just walked in on the two new birds mating.

I have been trying to cover every dark/nest friendly area I can think of, I even noticed them going under the bed during playtime, So I blocked all the gaps up with newspaper.

I have limited their daylight hours and close the curtains about 3 hours before it gets dark

I have looked around for signs of a nest but I can't find anywhere.

I cant have any more budgies, my landlord is already being accommodating by letting me have 3. I know that it also difficult to find them new homes.

Because I dont want her to have any babies, how can I stop her eggs from hatching if she lays them? I have purchased fake eggs so if she lays do I just replace them?

Please help!

Thank you for taking the precautions to not let her lay any eggs.

If she does happen to lay an egg, you can simply remove it and throw it away. You don't need to let her incubate it, as there won't be any life in it for a few days to start with. You don't need to replace the eggs with fake ones either, as this will still encourage a nesting behaviour.

Just toss them out and you're good to go!

If you're able to separate them into different cages until her hormones die down, that would be best.

You've been given great advice

Rearranging the cage frequently, limiting sunlight, etc. are all good steps to take. If she does lay, as mentioned above, tossing the egg is fine as there is no life in the egg until it has been incubated for several consecutive days.

Best of luck!
