No, you don't need a license to breed budgies, BUT.....
Talk Budgies encourages only the best practices in budgie care.... So, in order to support your intention to breed, staff would need to know and learn more about you and your experience level. Not just experience "having" budgies, but also knowing all
aspects of everything from behavior to diet to healthcare, and what is normal for breeding vs out of season, what you should look for when selecting pairs to breed, what you should look for to determine if a specific bird is not
a good candidate for breeding, what can go wrong with everything from egg laying to raising chicks, etc, etc. Please note that Talk Budgies discourages members from focusing on learning about breeding before taking the necessary amount of time however long that may be, to learn all
aspects in depth, of keeping budgies as individuals first
We ask that all new members take the time to read the Stickies posts at the top of all the major forum sections (healthcare, behavior, taming and bonding, breeding) to familiarize yourself with what Talk Budgies is all about. Check out our Articles section too, for more useful up to date information.
