Default Need help on budgie housing advice!!

Hello everyone, I tried to send these questions in the housing article, but it says that I donít have the permission to send anything there!!

Any way. I want to ask the experts about building a budgie aviary. So I live in a hot country and I want to build a budgie aviary in my house roof. The roof is open to the sun. The temperature in this time of the year is great for budgie it is about ( 17-32 Celsius ). I believe that theyíre ok to live and breed in this temp. However, in summer ( May to mid September ) the temp is around ( 30-50 Celsius ). So my question is would budgie be able to live and breed in this weather. Knowing that they live in the desert of Australia.

Note: I will have 70 % or more of the cage covered with a breathable material so that the sun doesnít hit them directly.

Hi

Whether or not the budgies will do well in a particular temperature, depends on whether they are acclimated to that temperature. For example, if you take budgies that have never been exposed to extremes before, they might not survive, or at the least not feel comfortable, which can stress them enough over time to lead to illness and death. It doesn’t matter that wild budgies are from a harsh climate. If the individuals are not accustomed, they will not do well.

Do you have the birds already? Have they been gradually acclimated to the weather? If so, it should be okay.. but in the very hottest time of year, besides having a shade shelter, plenty of water provided for bathing and drinking would help. Also, if it’s possible to incorporate a misting system with a fine water spray, that would be great to add.

Meanwhile, be sure to read up on all our Stickies and Articles. There is a lot of essential information, as well as answers to questions you may have. If you still have questions after reading the material, feel free to ask.

Looking forward to hearing more about this project.

Hi! to Talk Budgies

RavensGryf has offered you excellent advice.

You mentioned allowing the birds to breed and it is important you know this forum does not condone colony breeding due to the inherent risks and dangers.

Why Individual Breeding Cages are SO important!

Additionally, before breeding any species, it is important to learn as much about the animals, their personalities and the best practices to follow for responsible and ethical breeding prior to making the commitment to take on the responsibility.
This requires extensive research and an openness to continual learning.

Is there a reason why you want to have an aviary on your roof rather than keeping a couple of budgies in a very large flight cage in your home?
I would be concerned about predators in addition to the extremely hot weather if it were me.
In my opinion, 30-50 Celcius (86-122 Fairenheit) is much too hot for domesticated birds.

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

Truly, the very BEST advice anyone can offer you is to take the time to read ALL of the stickies throughout the various Talk Budgie forums as well as the Budgie Articles we have posted.

These are great resources for Talk Budgie members and have a wealth of reliable information which will assist you to learn the best practices in caring for your budgies for their optimal health and well-being.

Thank you guys for these amazing and helpful advices, if I continue and do this project Iíll make sure to see every single detail about it. Thatís why currently Iím asking local breeders to see how are they doing it in this weather, and from what I heard it wonít be a good idea to do it without adding at least a couple of fans that spray water and keep them running as long as the sun is up. However, for now Iíll pause the idea to continue my search about breeding, specifically about breeding in such tough weather.

How ever if Iím doing this project Iíll definitely do it in separate cages in colony style (more than one pair) but each pair in a separate cage. I already have 2 pairs and I have them for about 7 months theyíre placed indoors and one of them is already entering breeding mood. So Iím expecting them to breed soon

Please do extensive research with regard to breeding prior to breeding your current pair.

Have you owned budgies in the past?
Have you bred budgies in the past?
Are you certain the pair you have are not related?
How old are each of the budgies?
What conditioning diet do you have them on?
Do you have an Avian Vet lined up in case there are problems?
Have you read all of the Budgie Articles/Stickies on this forum regarding best practices in breeding?
