Default Can my budgies breed

Hello

I have 2 budgies but they are not mating.
I have these since 2 months.
Sometimes they fight (mostly when eating) and sometimes they are normal.
I am also unable to tame them as the female is always scared and fly away and because of that male also goes away.
Attached are the images of birds and their cage.

Thanks

Welcome to the forums!

You have a gorgeous pair, however from those pictures I can see your male budgie is still very young (has the immature purple colour on his cere) and the female is also not in breeding condition.
The bare minimum age to allow budgies to breed is 1 year old, your budgies are still young to be put up to the task so I advise you to remove the nest box and to not give them anything that they could use as a nest.

This will also give you more time to prepare, getting to know your budgies and working on bonding with them. By establishing a good bond with your pair you will also build the foundations of trust and this will be very important during breeding when you need to check the eggs/chicks and clean the nest box.

If you haven't done so already, check the info on the stickies at the Diet and Nutrition, Training and Bonding and Budgie Breeding section of the forums.

Just to know after when I should put the nest back to the cage?

Thanks

Hi and to Talk Budgies!

Breeding is a big responsibility and not something one should ever undertake without a great deal of extensive research. Since you are new to owning budgies, I would suggest you learn everything possible about caring for them and ensuring their well-being before you even begin to research breeding.

Budgies should not be bred until they are at least 12 - 18 months old so spend time getting to know them and their personalities for awhile. When they are older, we have lots of good information in the stickies in the Breeding Section of the forum and you can begin your breeding research there.

Think about replacing at least one of the dowel perches in your budgies's cage with some natural branch perches.

You're welcome!
You should only place the nest box after both your budgies are adults and at the appropriate age to breed and in top physical health and condition.
Your pair should also be put under a special diet appropriate to breeding before placing the nest box on the cage.
