Congratulations on your latest arrivals! It's great you were able to adopt these budgies in need of a good, loving home.

I can tell you the budgie perched on the food bowl is a female. The other one who is at the bottom of the cage may also be a female. Is her vent currently swollen and have you noticed bigger poops? As you must know from your cockatiels, these are signs when a bird is about to lay.
Your rescues look so much alike that it's possible they are siblings.

It would also be a good idea to quarantine your rescues and have them on a separate cage and room away from your budgie and the cockatiels.

I'm moving your thread to the New Budgie Arrivals section where it's most appropriate.

From the photo, the one standing on the food bowl has a brown cere indicating a female in breeding condition. They are both light green opaline budgies and seem to be about the same size, that's why I assumed they were/are likely siblings.

Ideally, it would be best to not allow them to breed, given the fact they have just moved to their new home and you are not yet aware of their health condition to allow them to breed. You don't know if they have been on a breeding diet prior, most likely they have not.
There are many factors to consider when taking in account the welfare of the breeding pair and any incoming chicks.
Do you happen to know how old these budgies are? They should be at least 1 year old and less than 4 years, when considering a potential breeding.
Without having a good knowledge of the birds' history, it's best to not risk breeding them.

yeah they were on a pure seed diet. but they must have had pellets and veggies before she got them because they adapted to that fast. its only been 3 days and they pig out of fresh veggies. :-)

i will most likely pull any eggs she lays and replace with duds. because she is going to lay eggs wether i like it or not, so i figure might as well make her as comfortable as possible to lay them. according to the lady one is roughly 1 year and a few months and the other is close to 2. there is actual a pretty good size difference. i think its just the way they are sitting in the pic. much to their dismay i weighed they. there is a 17 gram difference between them. :-)

You don't actually need to let your budgie go through the task of laying a full clutch of eggs. You don't know if she had a good calcium intake on her previous home or not and complications due to low calcium levels can arise.
By removing the nest box and not giving her anything that she can use as a nest and rearranging the cage or even moving your female to a different cage you can be successful in breaking her egg laying cycle.
You can read the detailed information on the link previously given on my first post.

I agree completely with aluz.

I recommend you remove the nest box immediately and start working to discourage egg laying as recommended.

I understand that you have cockatiels and are used to breeding them. However, budgies are not cockatiels and
simply because you have experience with one type bird does not mean that will necessary translate to another species.

The purpose of this forum is to promote only the best practices for the health and well-being of budgies.
The budgies have not been provided with a proper conditioning diet and they have recently been relocated to a new environment. Allowing the female to go through the stress of laying a full clutch is not advisable at this time.

You have not indicated if you followed the proper quarantine period when you brought these two budgies into your home.

Quarantine means housing your new bird in a different cage in a different room as far away as possible from the room where your current bird(s) are housed for a period of 30-45 days.
Budgies mask symptoms when they are ill. Symptoms may not show up for over two weeks.
Often you will not even realize your bird is not well. Many budgie illnesses are airborne which is why you need to quarantine your new bird in a completely different room.

It is also a good idea to always take a new budgie in to see an Avian Vet for a "well-birdie" check-up. This allows you to develop a good relationship with the vet and the vet can establish a baseline for your bird in case of any future illnesses or injuries.
