Hi
about four months back i had brought home two cute budgies one was a male and he is blue and black in colour and the other was a female budgie which is green and black in colour (the most common colour of budgies). Yesterday I was checking the breeding box which i had given them and i found that my female budgie had put eggs in it and were sitting on them...i was very happy when i knew about this. I am so excited to greet my new baby chicks. I just wanted to know if it is possible to know the colour of the chicks(before they are born) based on their parents colours. if so what would be my chicks colours
thank you

The purpose of this forum is to promote the BEST PRACTICES in the care of budgies for their optimal Health and Well-Being

Your post is extremely distressing.
You only got these budgies four months ago.

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.


Before anyone answers questions regarding breeding or possible color mutation outcomes for offspring, the staff needs you to answer all of the questions below:

Why did you allow two budgies to breed when you have no idea of their personalities, health and temperament?
Do you know the age of the two parents?
Are you absolutely positive they are not related?
What specific diet do you have them on at this time?
Have you ever owned budgies previously?
Have you ever bred budgies in the past?
How large is the cage you have the budgies in? Length, Width, Height?
Do you have any other budgies?
If so, are they housed with the two that just bred?
What are you planning to do with any offspring?
Do you have an Avian Vet?
Do you know how to properly hand feed a chick should something unforeseen happen?

It is fine that you want to keep the offspring but what are you going to do when the offspring start interbreeding, you cannot allow this.
