Default Budgie setup

Hello everyone,

I've recently setup the budgie cage. I m not sure this setup is ok for breeding or not. I ve put 2 pairs and they are just a month old in my home. The pairing seems not happened yet. Ive place the cage in living room where we usually family stays.

Please your help and comments would be helpful.

Attaching the cage and pairs pics.

Thanks

Hi again,

Given the fact you seem relatively new to budgies (being able to tell gender is part of the very basics), it's not at all advisable to breed your budgies.
Please check my response on your other thread: https://talkbudgies.com/determining-g...-confused.html
Colony breeding is also not recommended due to its many dangers: https://talkbudgies.com/budgie-breedi...s-dangers.html

Please remove the nest boxes and take your time in getting familiar with the species when it comes to providing the very best of care for their optimal health and when you possess the knowledge and feel ready for the responsibility, you can proceed with breeding.

Also that cage should only house one pair of budgies, not two.

aluz has given you excellent advice.

Breeding budgies should never be undertaken without the proper knowledge, experience in budgie care and extensive research with regard to best practices.

Please remove the nest box right away and take the time to review these links as well as the ones aluz has provided.

You have a very attractive group of of budgies there! The posters who are urging you to remove the nestbox are not trying to 'rain on your parade', but they are honestly saying what is best at this time and the reason why. So much can and does go wrong. It can be much more complicated than mammals having babies. Also, what will you do with more budgies if you don't have a plan to keep them? There are already so many in this world . Also, IF you had babies that miraculously turned out healthy with lack of necessary breeder knowledge, you would have to be extremely careful who is related to who, and not let them ever accidentally breed. This that I mentioned is only a couple small things to consider. When breeding, there are a ton of things to know and remember, and have a plan for the future of the babies as well. I do hope that you will come to see the sense in why this is being told to you at this time .

As FaeryBee pointed out in your other thread, I think this bears repeating... Breeding is NOT a necessary part of owning birds.

Lots of good advice here. When you start reading what can happen to budgies when they breed (eggs get stuck and all sorts of complications)... it really makes one think twice before breeding. Definitely something where someone new at it most definitely would want to proceed with caution and do *a lot* of homework. I have my first bird and I don't see myself ever taking on breeding without lots of research. Even then, it objectively seems a bit intimidating.

Hi there!

It's great that you're so enthusiastic about your budgies, they really are very pretty

However, I would like to agree with the above posters.

You hardly know these little ones--there is so much more to them than just breeding, and it's important to get to know your budgies and earn their trust before even researching to breed

It's not really a good time for you to breed. As mentioned, so many things can go wrong, and you wouldn't want your little budgies so suffer. Also, colony breeding is definitely not recommended for the reasons in that link.

Be sure to read through all the links provided here and in your introductory thread to ensure that you're first learning all there is to learn about your budgies!

Cheers!
