Default Breeding Budgies in an Avery

Hi Everyone,

My name is Brett and this is my very first forum and first posting so be gentle with me hahahaha, My question is do there have to be equal ratio of male and females as at the moment I have 4 males and 9 females. Can males mate with more than one female or do they need to be in pairs? The other problem I am having is the females all seem to want the same box as other females which is causing them to have fights over the box. there is enough boxes for each of them but they seem to want the same box. I have separated a couple of the females from the aviary to try and stop the fighting. Any suggestions or advise would be greatly appreciated.

Females tend to be territorial when breeding. There will be bickering, fights and may even lead to death. You should separate a pair and breed them. There are others here in forum who an provide you more information than me

How much experience if any do you have with breeding? Colony breeding, which is what you have described is not supported on this forum, I suggest you remove all boxes to avoid fighting and possible injury between your birds. There is a lot of research that needs to be done before you attempt to breed, as there are many issues that can arise. Please read through the many articles in the "Budgie Breeding" section of the forum they will answer many questions and if you cannot find the information you need please ask.

as has been said remove all the boxes. You will end up with dead birds if you try to colony breed, especially with your current set up.

Next up, how old are your birds.
Are any related
Have they bred before
What diet are they on
How big is their aviary
There's a lot that goes into breeding it is not as simple as putting in boxes and letting them get on with it

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.

We never recommend colony breeding as it goes against what this forum views as best practices.

Please remove the nest boxes and set up individual breeding cages ONLY IF you have done all the necessary research regarding breeding.

How long have you owned budgies?
How much research have you done with regard to breeding?
How old is each budgie?
What is the temperament of each budgie
What is the health of each bird?
Are any of them related?
WHY do you want to breed them?
What do you plan to do with any offspring?
Where is the aviary located?
What diet are they on?

There are Many more considerations which must be taken into account before one considers breeding budgies ethically and responsibly.

Hi thankyou for your reply. I have had budgies for about 9 year's and have a cage set up of 8f wideX 5f deepX 6f high. when there is fighting I seperate them also make sure they don't breed from the same clutch. Thanks again for the food for thought.
