You have two females. Budgies will display the same behaviors regardless of male or female.

Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to have a male and a female for them to be happy. Same sex pairs can become wonderful bonded friends. It’s even better, because we don’t have to worry about the problems associated with unwanted breeding and egg laying!

Thank you for your answer,,,, are you sure that the blue budgie is a female?? When i bought him they told me he was a male and his cere was blue then changed..... Also he always cut his wings when they fully grow up to the point he can't fly anymore... What do you think i should do with him? I had him for 2 years thinking he was a male calling him julio . I wanted some budgie babies........ Is it ok if i buy one male or should i buy two? And should he be older then my females? I dont even know their ages......... Sorry it was too long

Why do you want to breed your birds? It takes a great deal of preparation and knowledge before you should even consider it, and that fact that you do not even know the age of your birds, breeding them should not be even considered. Please read through all the articles on the forum in the Budgie Breeding section and it will become clear to you why it should not be something entered into without a great deal of knowledge and planning.

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.

Most budgies should never be bred.
They are healthier and happier if they are not bred when kept domestically.

Why do you think you want to breed your birds?
What would you do with the offspring?
How long have you owned budgies?
How much research have you done with regard to the best practices in caring for budgies?

If that is your reason for wanting to breed, it is not a good reason at all. On top of the other reasons stated above that it’s not a good idea. There is never any guarantee that a budgie will become super tame and handleable if started at a young age.

Depending on the individual personality of the bird, despite attempts at early taming, some might still choose to not want to be handled once mature. Then occasionally, some who are worked with later become surprisingly tame.

Please answer the above questions asked by other staff members. Also, if you haven’t already, read the Announcement for all Members in the banner at the top of the page.

Breeding is best left to those with more experience in knowing the species “inside and out” first. It’s stressful on the birds, and many things can go wrong. Please read the links too, in FaeryBee’s post.

After you answer the questions, we’ll be better able to help you.
