Budgies Hens Brooding And Still Mating

Recommended Posts

Hi group


I have a question regarding the fertility of budgie hens once they have laid a clutch (in our case 8 eggs) with one baby thus far, which hatched 2.5 days ago.  She is feeding the baby well and its crop is always full.  She still stays in the box but does come out every now and then and I saw that she was mating again with the male.  I'm hoping this is just recreational and that while raising chicks she is infertile.  Is this correct?  I don't really want any more eggs, I have to get through this clutch first and even then, will be separating them once babies are 6-8weeks old.
