Stopping The Breeding

4 posts in this topic

Pse help me with advice on how I can stop my budgies breeding in my Aviary. I'm exhausted and think we all could do with a 6 month rest period. I've removed all nest boxes and there is no nesting material but yesterday I caught 2 of them mating??? Help

They will stop laying now that the boxes have been removed. Budgies will continue to mate but without a breeding box they will not nest. You may find some eggs laid off the perches but that should soon stop.

 

I recommend you rest your birds for a bit longer than 6 six months. Make sure to supplement them with calcium (cuttle bone) and also give them lots of fruit and veg of mixed variety.

thank you so much..........................i will rest them even till next year.The cleaning kills me! Also i give my birds cuttlebone permanently. They get corn on cob,apple,spinach,swiss chard and beetroot. THEY DISCARDED/IGNORED ALL OTHER FRUITS AND VEGGIES IVE TRIED.

budgies mate as part of recreational budgie sex...but it doesnt always lead to eggs unless they feel they have a place to raise a family
