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.

Why are you allowing your birds to breed? It takes a lot of knowledge and preparation before even thinking about breeding. Birds do not have to breed in order to have a happy life. How old are the birds and what type of set up do you have? You said you have a nest, is it a nest or a nest box?

What is your reason for wishing your pair to breed?

We recommend removing the nest. As Cody mentioned, budgies do NOT need to breed in order to be happy. In fact, although it is a natural process, it’s actually hard and stressful on the body. Many things can (and commonly do) go wrong as well. We do not recommend people to breed their budgies unless they have a substantial amount of experience keeping budgies, as well as a high level of knowledge on ALL aspects of keeping them in captivity.

Hi,

As mentioned, we need more information from you before we can advise you. You should NOT be breeding your budgies unless you have done extensive research and have the resources (an avian vet, etc.) to do so, as well as plans for any chicks. Breeding budgies without the proper knowledge puts your birds in real danger as you will not know how to deal with potential problems that arise. Additionally, it puts substantial stress on the birds to breed and produce chicks. Because of this, most pet birds never need to be bred.

As mentioned, please remove the nest at this time, as it sounds like you don't have the proper experience to breed budgies yet. Remember, we care about the well being of your birds.

Unless you have done extensive research, are certain of the birds' ages, temperament and health
you need to remove the nest box and work to throw your budgies out of condition.

PLEASE read the following:

A Heartfelt Plea to All Members

Guidance regarding Breeding Advice Threads


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.
