Hi all!

I recently bought a supposed 'Brother' for my budgie, turns out he is a she. So now i'm considering breeding. It's a long way off since she's only 5 months old and he is only 8 months, but it gives me time to research. Any breeders here that could give me some tips on what it's like? I just bought a nice large cage i'm fixing up for them. I'm hoping they will bond. Right now the female keeps chasing him off but I assume it's because she's not in the right mating condition. Thanks so much for your help in advance!! (:

Here are a few basic things:

1. Only breed when your birds are at least 10 months old

2. Never colony breed. One pair per cage only

3. You will need a nesting box for them. Put it in when the hens cere is tan coloured

4. Never allow more than two nests per year. Remove the nesting box when the last chick from the second nest has fledged and bury any remaining eggs

Good luck
