What Will Happen Next,? Will They Breed.?

Recommended Posts

Hi, i have three budgies and two scarlet chested parrots in an aviary. There are nest boxes provided and i just wanted to see which female the budgie would pair with. I saw which one he chose so i moved the other bird inside. Today i noticed the female in the box and the male on the floor. The female then climbed on top of the box and the male flew up and started to feed her. what should i look out for? what will happen next?

I personally would say 10-15 budgies maximum, but then again, that's just me, and that's non breeding... if they're breeding then I'd only have three pairs in there :)

I'd add a safety door before I went putting any more birds in there.

Do not put budgies in with most other birds. When I was a wee young thing, at my Dad's place, we inherited an aviary that had finches, 2 cockatiels and budgies. We kept losing finches and we did not know why. It was the budgies. They attacked them.

 

If you want different species as well as budgies, then you need separate aviaries.

You can use the aviary for whatever you like really but when you finish breeding the budgies they cant go back in with the finches. We have finches and canaries and parrots as well as budgies. In my husbands old aviary which was HUGE he had the finches and canaries and parrots. As a result there were many of the finches and canaries with broken leg issues, missing feet and legs. The hooked beak birds ( parrots and budgies ) are inclined to reach over and bite the legs and feet of the finches and canaries to move them off the shared perches. I dont mix ANYTHING else with my budgies at all.

 

 

 

PLEASE PLEASE put a safety door on that aviary before anything else.
