Incompetent Cock ?

Recommended Posts

Well first of all I need to rant a little bit. I had 3 budgies in a flight cage and my new budgie in a round dome cage. Yep I now know round cages suck for birds. Over the weekend I took my new budgie out for a fly around while I went to clean the cage. Disaster :rip: I sprayed the cage with water to clean it and the bottom of the cage came off. Apparently it was glued on with water soluble glue. @%$@&^%*^ stores who sell junk.

 

Well as you can guess that has totally blown ANY chances of continuing quarantine. Still introductions have gone well. Maybe a little too well. Sooty turns out was in breeding condition and Phil was more than happy to change his attentions from his long time love to the new bit of young fluff. (I am getting to the question)

 

I noticed this morning that Phil was hopping onto Sooty's back but that was as far as he was getting. He seemed to have no clue what to do from there. (Yay the question) Will Sooty think she has been mated anyway and lay ?

If there is a nest available she will probably go down but if there is no nest I wouldn't worry to much. As for the Phil well he will get the hang of it. Don't concern your self to much. They seem to do it when we are not watching. I think they must get embarrased :rip:

Its purely recreational budgie sex, mate :rip: .................99% of the time NO EGGS happen unless you have provided them with a great place to lay them...i.e. a nesting box. I have aviaries full of budgies having budgie sex, but no eggs. No nesting boxes in there. There are rare occasions where some hens find places and ways to lay eggs, but on the whole, looks like you are safe. :hap:

(Laughing out loud) Short and to the point :(

Well nice to know they are just "practicing". Nope no nest boxes so the chances are pretty slim. Just wanted to know if she was likely to so I could adjust diet if needed. Thanks for the help
