Default placing male and female for mating

Hi,
I want to place two budgies, both are in breeding condition, in a separate cage to encourage breeding, but they are not strong bonded, the male is closer bonded to another male. If I place the two by themselves will I encourage them to bond closer and mate?

Yes.. when alone they will bond faster.

Hi and to Talk Budgies!

I'd love to get some more information from you...

How long have you owned budgies?
How many do you have?
How old are each of the budgies you want to breed and are you certain they are not related?
Have you ever bred budgies before?

An individual should have a very good basic knowledge of budgies and budgie care before even considering the possibility of allowing their birds to breed. Taking the time to get to know and understand your birds and how to best care for them is critical.

I would suggest you begin by reviewing the following links:
FAQs: Talk Budgies Forums - FAQ
Stickies: List of Stickies
Resources: Helpful Links
Expense: Be Prepared for Veterinary Care Expense
Quarantine: Quarantine? Is it really THAT important?
Dangers: 50+ Common Budgie Dangers To Watch Out For
Essentials: Essentials to a Great Cage-Talk Budgies Forums

Once you are certain you are providing everything possible for the health and well-being of your birds, then do extensive research before considering whether your wish to assume the responsibility of allowing your budgies to breed. The following threads will provide a good basis for your research:

In order to be better prepared, if you haven't done so already, do read the stickies at the Breeding section of the forums for all the valuable info.
A person needs to have a good knowledge on the species and be prepared to raise the chicks if something goes wrong.

Thanks for the replies and the concerns as well, but I have to.say that although I haven't bred before, over the past weeks, months I have done extensive reading and researching and preparing,
The pair I want to breed are both in breeding condition with over 18 months of age
I have my breeding cage set up and a vet.in case the female starts developing problems

Good job Mandy. Now you can proceed with more confidence and hopefully less problem's. You know the experienced breeding folk's here are as generous as could be with their advice and expertise, so good luck and keep us posted...

I hope all goes well and plan to.place the budgies into their new cage today, and then I will pay close as Trenton to their behavIour. I am hoping they will soon bond and show signs of "attraction" for mating, but if they don't what do I do, how long should I wait for "attraction" to kick in? Place them back into their usual cage I suppose and give them more time

Mandy,

It's great to hear you've been doing the necessary research!

Hopefully now that you have your pair set up and separated from your other birds they will become interested in one another.
You should see signs of the hen going in and out of the nestbox within just a few days and her interest in starting a family should encourage the male to do his part.
