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 Nest box

Hey,
So i separated a pair of my birds for breeding and i had a wooden nest box hanged to the cage from outside 3 weeks ago but the birds never went into it. So Then 3 days ago i put a small plastic one in the cage and she already is going in and out and got all the nesting out of it. it is impossible for me to reach it or check it without scaring them since it is in the cage and they keep throwing the top cover of it down. is there any way that i can change it back to the wooden big one that is easy to maintain from outside and make her go into it?

note: they were two pairs in a cage at first with these two boxes the wooden outside and the plastic inside. They went into both but the wooden very less than they did the plastic but i separated them to prevent fighting over the nest box.

You are new to budgies and should not be considering breeding your birds at this point in time.
From your previous threads, I note that you got your first budgies only in June of this year.

How old are the budgies you currently have?
Do you know if they are related?

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.

Guidance regarding Breeding Advice Threads

A Heartfelt Plea to All Members

Please remove any nest boxes from your budgies' cages.

Take the time to get to know your budgies, learn about their personalities and temperaments and research the best practices for caring for your birds for their optimum health and well-being.

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.

Hi there,

You've been given great advice above. You can't jump into breeding budgies like this without having hardly any experience. Budgies are not like guppies and you can't simply expect them to breed all by themselves without you knowing the proper methods/information

I'm sorry if this sounds harsh but our first priority is always to your budgies and it's a danger to them if you try and breed without proper experience. If you'd like to pursue breeding in the future, its a good idea to start researching now and talk to you avian vet, etc. so that eventually when you have a good level of experience with budgies you're able to do so safely!

I also would recommend you remove the nest box right away. Good luck!

Sorry, late to the thread, but I wanted to say the advice above is right on, and was said for a reason. It wasn’t to make you feel attacked. So much beyond what you can imagine can go wrong, and commonly does. There is just so much to know.

With the many years of experience I have with birds, I would never want to attempt breeding. Remember, there are other ways to keep our captive pets happy. They don’t “need to” breed to be happy. In fact, it’s actually stressful on the body, even with preparing with the right type of diet for breeding.

I hope you’ve taken all this into consideration. This is the same thing we will tell all members without the proper experience level. Hope you understand .
