Budgie Breeding Tips

Click here for full article: "Budgie Breeding Tips For Beginners
First of all, we need to make sure we have everything ready to help maximise the chances of successfully breeding our budgies:

- Male + Female
- A cage
- Sturdy nesting box on the outside of the cage
- Low disturbance level
- Plenty of seed and water
- Mineral blocks and calcium blocks
- EggFood daily
- Extra light during the day to make them think their days are longer
- Lots of spraying to make them think it might be rainy season
- If other birds are in the house, let them see each other to encourage breeding
- Fruit/veg 2-3 times per week

Both birds need to be old enough, I'd say 12 months at least for him, a bit older for her.

Start fattening them up with lots of extras, millet and eggfood for definite. When it comes to spraying/misting I give mine a light spray 2-3 times per week when I'm aiming to let them breed, depending on how dry the air feels."
