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

Both budgies are very beautiful!!

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 we answer questions with regard to breeding - or possible mutation outcomes - we need more information:

Why do you want to breed your birds?
How long have you owned budgies?
How old are the budgies you wish to breed?
Do you have any experience with breeding?
Are you certain the birds are not related?
What specific diet do you have them on at this time?
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?

I recommend you remove the wooden dowel perch in the cage and replace it with natural wooden perches of varying diameters to help prevent pressure sores.

Hi there and welcome to the forums!

It seems like you've had a lot of experience with breeding birds! Budgies are a little different but I'm glad you've got a good relationship with your avian vet in case anything comes up.

For other members reading this: As FaeryBee mentioned above, it's very important to do the necessary research before breeding any birds, as well as having a good relationship with your avian vet in case additional care is needed or something happens.

Your birds are truly gorgeous! The female is a sky blue single factor violet spangle opaline budgie, and the male is a sky blue yellowface II dilute budgie.

You've come to a great place to learn even more about the best of budgie care practices! Please be sure to read through the forums' many budgie articles and stickies, provided above by FaeryBee, to ensure you're up to date on everything. If you have any questions after doing so, please be sure to ask as we'd love to help!

Hope to see you and your budgies around the forums! 👋

Thank you so much for taking the time to answer all the questions.
I'm glad to see you have been a responsible breeder of other species of birds previously.
As indicated, budgies are a bit different so please take the time to read the Articles regarding Budgie Breeding in that section of our forum.
You may also want to check out the stickies in the Budgie Breeding section of the forum (some of the information will be duplicates of what you find in the articles).

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please let us know.
