Hi folks,

I have one female budgie of 18 months old. I am looking for a male budgie to mate with her. I live in Medford, MA. Could some one help on this?

Thanks a lot.
Best,

Why are you wanting to breed your bird? Breeding should not be undertaken without acquiring a vast amount of knowledge. Please take a look at this link and answer honestly to yourself the questions it asks.

My budgie used to have a male mate with her. And they have about 14 young ones already. However, 2 months ago, my male budgie fled away. Now, I am thinking of getting a new mate for her.

There's enough budgies in the world, my mans. It's never a guarantee those chicks will go on to lead happy and healthy lives. Is it not possible to get her a mate but not actively encourage them having babies? Seems rather heartless to continually put her through the exhaustion of having babies.

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

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.

You indicate your female is only 18 months old and has already had 14 chicks.
The fact that your title says you "Need a male budgie to mate with my female one" is a true red flag. You do not need your budgie to mate.

How many clutches had she had?
How many chicks were in each clutch?
How long did you own budgies before allowing her to breed?
How many times did you breed her and what age was she when she had her first clutch?
How much research did you do before allowing these two budgies to breed?
How large is the cage you had them in?
What specific diet are you giving the budgies?
Are you certain the two budgies you had were not related?
Were you giving the female calcium supplements?
