Hi there and welcome to the forums!

Since you are new to budgies, your priority right now should not be breeding as for doing so responsibly, a person must have a very good knowledge and real life experience in budgie ownership. Besides this, the necessary research should also be made in order to ensure the welfare and safety of the breeding pair and any incoming chicks.

First of all, the new budgie you got should have been quarantined in a different cage and room away from your current pair.
This is done as a preventive measure in order to avoid any potential illness carried by the new budgie to be spread to your pair.
Please take a look at this link and separate your new female right away :https://talkbudgies.com/new-budgie-ar...necessary.html

Also housing two females with one male is also a recipe for disaster and you are already experiencing this with the fighting between your females.
When housing an odd number of budgies who also happen to be mixed gendered, vicious fighting can be expected and an immediate and permanent separation needs to be done in order to avoid bloodshed and casualties. Please get a second cage for your new female.
This link will also be useful: https://talkbudgies.com/articles-gene...en-flocks.html


The decision to breed comes with a whole lot of responsibility and commitment, the lives of the breeding pair and the chicks are depending on you and the response you give if/when faced with adversity.
Things like being able to tell if your breeding pair is in good health and top physical condition to go through breeding; when a hen is expecting an egg or if she is showing the first signs of being egg bound; when a chick is having developmental problems, not being fed or showing signs of dehydration;
when there is aggression, abandonment and neglect of the chicks and it's solely up to you to feed and raise the chicks. The ability to detect early on and solve these issues can truly make a difference on the outcome of your breeding journey.

The first step really is to take a more active role in getting to know your budgies, to study their behaviours, learn how to read and decipher their body language and how they interact with you and among themselves, in short to gain experience by taking a real interest in your budgies and being really open to learn by watching them. This valued experience combined with the resources found here at Talk Budgies will be of benefit to you and when the time comes to that are fully prepared and ready to allow your pair to breed, you can consider doing so.

Hi! to Talk Budgies

I agree completely with aluz.

The new budgie should be quarantined away from the budgies you had previously.

Even after quarantine, housing two birds of one gender with one of the opposite gender is not recommended.

It is important to learn as much about budgies and the best practices for their care as possible if you plan to have them as pets.
You should not even consider breeding budgies until you have a strong basic knowledge followed by extensive research. Only then is a person in a position to make a rational decision on whether or not they want to make the commitment to assume the responsibility of breeding their birds.

Please separate the new budgie into a different cage and quarantine her for the proper amount of time.
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.


Distinction between an Avian Vet and a Vet that "Will See Birds"

After that, you may sit the two cages near one another to allow the birds to become acquainted without danger of one hurting the other.

Please take the time to read through all of the How To Guides, the FAQs and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

You'll find most of your basic questions about budgies and caring for them will have been answered after you've read through all of them.

I wish you well on your budgies, when the time is right they will meet each other and get to know each other. Don't forget cuttlebones for each cage.
