Hi, Welcome to Talk Budgies!

An individual needs to have a good background in basic budgie care and then do extensive research into the proper breeding practices prior to making the decision to accept the responsibility of the commitment required for breeding responsibly and ethically.

We do not condone colony breeding.
You need to remove all the nest boxes from the cage at this time.
Budgie pairs need to be separated into individual cages with individual breeding boxes after extensive research has been done.

A heartfelt plea to forum members new and old
Guidance for Breeding Advice Threads

Budgies do not need to be bred to be happy and will, in fact, be happier and healthier if they are not bred.
Given your questions, I would advise you to separate your budgies by gender and do extensive research before determining if your birds are the right age and temperament to consider breeding them.

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.
