Hi there and welcome to the forums!
You have certainly come to the right place as you will find all you need to know on budgie care here.
Since you are new to budgies, the information on the articles and sticky threads located at the top part of each section of the forums will be extremely useful as you become more familiar and acquainted with the species.

The age on a budgie in most cases can be determined by a few factors, by looking at the budgie and seeing if it has gone through the first moult or not (the presence of the barring on the forehead area will tell the budgie is very young, below 4 months old), the colour on the cere will also give a good clue to the budgie's age and so will the development on the iris rings.

If you are looking into breeding your budgies, given the fact you are new to the budgie world and currently lack in knowledge and real life experience with the species, it's not at all advisable to allow your budgies to breed so soon.
If you have any nesting pots or other nest sites, please remove them from the cage/aviary. Budgies who are below 1 year of age and haven't yet reached adulthood should not be allowed to breed.
Please check these links below and follow the recommendations there:

Hi and to Talk Budgies!

We have several members here from India. One of the things that is challenging seems to be the fact there are few Avian Vets in your country.

Because of this, you will want to do as much research as you can and learn as much about budgies and the best practices for their care so you can provide your little ones with the best possible life. We have a member in India who has done this and has developed a great relationship with a regular vet. With the member's research and the vet's collaboration, they have found ways of providing care for her budgie that she would have not been able to manage otherwise.

It is very important that you learn all about budgies and the best practices for their health and well-being before even considering doing the extensive research necessary before deciding to accept the responsibility of breeding them in an ethical and responsible manner.

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.
