  1. look i have removed the nesting box thanks for the information. my problem is that when i purchased her i was told she was an adult and a year old now i'm not to certain about her true age as i'm not sure how trustworthy this guy was. but i don't want to end up in the same situation as my other pair where i'm not being told she's to old to breed if you know what i mean. but thanks for all the information
  2. i am trying to breed the older one however with the newly purchased hen i was told when i bought her that she was an adult about a year old but i do not exactly trust if this guy had told me her true age but i do know that he had a seperate cage with the baby budgies and the adult budgies, without knowing her exact age is hard
  3. hey i've read that when the hens cere turns brown then she is ready to breed is this necessarily true as the new hen mellow her cere is a dark brown?
  4. okay thanks for the help need to do some shopping. also another question today my male budgie went into the nesting box a couple of times the hen followed but didn't go in is this a sign of a potential interest in breeding thanks
  5. my other pair of budgies which i recently paired up were so cute today. the boy budgie was going to the nesting box and would go in there and the female budgie would go near the box as well but not inside. he did this a couple of times. this was funny as a couple of days ago he seemed to be attacking her looks like he's finally realised he likes her lol
  6. cool thanks for your help, i'll do that now
  7. i've read the FAQ section found some information about nesting materials but i just have another question do i put in the wood shavings in the nesting box now or is thier a specific time or do i leave wood shaving in the cage for the budgies to decide
  8. okay thanks yeah the nesting box has always been in there i guess they believe its furniture funny. definetly will remove it thanks again
  9. hey just wanted to know if budgies require any materials for nesting box e.g. string, wood shavings?
  10. just want to know though because i did get the pair when they were babies why till this day they have never bred however show signs such as feeding each other. her cere is white to light brown it looks a bit crusty
  11. yeah there is another pair on the other side of the aviary which is split in half, they can't get to each other.
  12. i think she might be infertile because for the years i've had her the couple have never bred. hopefully i can get a closer photo but bella is photo shy. Anyway thanks heaps
  13. besides her age is their another way of telling that shes too old? she has never breeded
  14. Im pretty sure shes a hen by her cere but heres a picture of the pair
  15. hi i don't know if its just bad luck or i'm missing something but my budgies have never bred. i have a pair that i've probably have had for 2-3 years, once in a blue moon i have seen her in the nesting box and the male bobs his head at her and i've seen him feed her but no little chicks. why is this? i've done my research about breeding and believe to be on the right track but i'm not sure if im missing something or they just want to be living the life with no kids
  16. i will definetly move it or cover the entrance up if thats fine, thanks
  17. this is a picture of the long time couple bella and bello and this is milo (the confused budgie or thirdwheel) with new friend mellow
  18. okay thanks for letting me know, its funny that the guy who sold me th bird believed she was and i was about to buy a baby budgie and he told me that just give her three months and she will be fine for breeding and her cere had a hint of blue which made me believe he was trying to sell me a boy thats why i got an adult instead. but okay so another 5 months thats kool. so how old in age should they be when they can breed exactly. also i'll show you some pics of the other couple which i've had for more than three years but they haven't breeded yet. thanks
  19. hey thanks for that so here's the picture of my budgies home and here the picture of the new addition to the family "mellow"
  20. hey i want to show you some pics of the cage they are in and also what my new budgie looks like but not too sure how to add pics from a folder can anyone help thanks
  21. yeah i thought maybe that it was just his way of impressing her or something but he seemed aggressive and she seemed distressed but today their both calm each on a different perch away from each other. i will definetly get some photos just need my cameras battery to charge it went flat on me.
  22. hey thanks all for your replies. yeah i recently had 3 budgies but purchased another budgie so that the extra male would have company. im fairly new to the whole breeding thing as my budgies have never breeded. the budgies are in a fairly large cage that is split in half so that they can't get from one side to the other. both sides have a nesting box and enough space to move around in. yeah i do believe the other male is trying to interfere with the couple. the couple is probably 3 years old and the other male would be about 2 years, time goes so fast i can't remember exactly how old also when i bought the new budgie i was told she was ready for breeding as i bought an adult budgie. okay i never knew about quarantine what do i do exactly does she have to be in a seperate cage or is it okay that she is with the male budgie. also is this why the male budgie seems to be attacking the her? thanks again for your help
