Hey everybirdy :)

Swoop and Slugfest have finally come out of Quarantine! And I think I will attempt to breed them, just to give me something to do between breeding my tiels, LOL. There's so much to learn, and even though budgies have a lot of similarities to cockatiels, which I've been breeding since 2001, There's a LOT of differences!

I'm currently trying to get Slugfest and Swoop into breeding condition and onto something other than seed and egg food. Slugfest's cere is bright and blue - no doubt he's ready! However Swoop seems to be coming OUT of condition. Not a problem. I can wait for when she's ready. However, I'm wondering how long it takes for the hen to come back into breeding condition after she's come out of it? My searches haven't come up with an answer. Or I've missed it.

Thanks for your help ahead of time!

The amount of time between when when a female budgie goes into breeding condition can vary from budgie to budgie.

Budgies are different than cockatiels.
Before breeding any particular species, it is important to learn as much about those 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.

If you are planning to breed your budgies in the future, please ensure you carefully review all of the information in the links below:
