Default son courted his mum

My male single factor yellow-faced type 1st cobait normal budgie had been courted his mother -a single factor violet-cobait opaline budgie, for few past weeks.

They were planning to raise the inbred chicks.

I worried about how inbred budgies behaves and their health and their ablities to fend for themselves, flying skills and smaller body sizes.

I were been very careful not to inbreeding my budgies.

Can you tell me about inbred budgies.

It seems that you have already know the answer to this question, and realize how poor of an idea it is to let this mating take place

Inbreeding, especially between such close relatives as mother and son, is a very bad idea. Even wise and experienced breeders who know their lines extremely well not use this pairing. The odds of outward and inward deformities, weakened immune systems, shortened life expectancies and a number of other things are very high when inbreeding, as I am sure you realize.

Since you have noticed this behavior for a number of weeks, the wise thing would have been to separate them right at the beginning if you thought there was any real possibility of eggs being laid. I am hoping that you will separate them now if the hen is showing signs of nesting, or dispose of any eggs laid right away before they can be incubated if that were to happen. It is the only wise thing to do in a potential inbreeding situation such as this.

Sometimes being an ethical breeder requires tough choices to be made. However, when it is for the well being of the birds who we are giving the opportunity to breed, and in such limited spaces that a mating like this would take place which normally never would in the wild, we need to do what is necessary to prevent possible long term damage to their health and prevent it all together. I hope that answers your question

This thread discusses the experience of one of our members who inadvertently bought a group of inbred budgies.

This is quite scary. I purchased my bird from a pet store only because I couldn't find any local breeders, but also because the staff was very knowledgeable and the animals are all seemingly well cared for and in good overall appearance. They even made me sign papers saying that if I was unable to give my bird what it needs to thrive (enter list) that I would re home him to a suitable home, and if one was not found that I would NOT set him free, but instead return him to the store. Not once did the possibility of buying an inbred bird crossed my mind.

For future purchases (not just for myself, but for anyone who buys from a pet store), how can we tell if a bird is from good stock??
