Default budgie started breeding outside cage

hi , recently i started my budgies to have some quality time outside of cage each day , when i go outside my room , i let them out for morning to evening each day for past weeks .
and now i noticed that they don't like to go into cage(its OK with me) . so i let them out outside cage all time , at night they sleep on cage with all there equipment's ( food , water , cuttle-bone , mineral block).
my room is extremely big , so they are always happy . and they like to fly all over room , and they fly extremely safe .
by the way i think they are one year old pair. male and female are extremely active and by far the fittest budgies that i have ever seen .

i had one nest-box which i placed outside cage, and 4 days ago i started to notice that they are mating like crazy.

So my question is when can i expect to see some eggs? ,
male is so caring he always feed the female . and yes they are hand tamed .
and since i having 4 months holiday, i think i like to have them babys .

So guys when i get to see some eggs,

sorry for english

Hi, it's great that you sound very conscientious about keeping budgies, and that they have much free time out of the cage , however, you might want to think again about keeping them free in your room. Especially when unsupervised. I figure if you let them out morning until night, there are periods when you aren't in your room. There might be hidden dangers for the budgies in an environment that is your bedroom also.

A big concern is that you say you think you might like them to have babies. It is definitely not as simple as it seems, and there is so much that can go wrong, and requires so much more knowledge than just having a couple budgies. I urge you at this time to focus on keeping your pets happy and healthy without the added element of breeding.

Please read the information in these links below:

Are You Ready To Breed Your Budgies?
A heartfelt plea to forum members new and old

This link gives you tips on how to keep your pair from wanting to breed:

Your budgies should be kept in a cage for their own safety, no matter how safe you think they are or how happy they are. They need to be supervised when out.

When breeding budgies it should be done with careful consideration not on a whim just because they are mating and having them in a room rather than a cage is irresponsible.

If you want to breed them, you need to make sure you put the birds welfare first. Please read the links provided for you and consider making changes to benefit your birds first.
I would not recommend breeding at this time as it comes with a lot of responsibility.

The purpose of this forum is to promote the best practices for the health and well-being of budgies.

Breeding domesticated birds is much different than birds breeding out in the wild.
Before breeding any species, it is important to learn as much about the animals, their personalities and the best practices to follow for responsible and ethical breeding prior to making the commitment to take on the responsibility.
This requires extensive research and an openness to continual learning.

Please read the links you've been provided by the other posters on this thread, remove the nest box and discourage egg laying.

Additionally, it is very important you give your birds structure.
Budgies need a specific amount of time in the cage on a daily basis and should be safely in the cage each night for sleeping as well.

Hi there,

I agree that the conditions your flock is kept in aren't ideal for you to let them safely breed. It's important to establish a routine for your flock and to keep the time they spend in and out of the cage balanced.
Even for a bird proofed room, accidents can still happen when the budgies aren't being supervised.

From your other thread you created back in November you mentioned being new to budgies: i bought 4 budgies
Before taking the breeding route and in order to do so more safely, a person should have a very good grasp of the species (this comes with real life experience in budgie ownership) and to do the required research into the subject.

The decision to breed comes with a whole lot of responsibility and commitment, the lives of the breeding pair(s) and the chicks are depending on you and the response you give if/when faced with adversity.
Things like being able to tell if your breeding pair is in good health and top physical condition to go through breeding; when a hen is expecting an egg or if she is showing the first signs of being egg bound; when a chick is having developmental problems, not being fed or showing signs of dehydration;
when there is aggression, abandonment and neglect of the chicks and it's solely up to you to feed and raise the chicks. The ability to detect early on and solve these issues can truly make a difference on the outcome of your breeding journey.

Also the photos you have posted in that thread indicated that your budgies were very young at about 3 months old. There is no way that after two months they are 1 year old and at the very minimum required age to breed.
For your budgie's overall welfare, please remove the nest box, your female is much too young to be put through egg laying and her life will be at risk.

Follow the recommendations on the links previously given to you and at this point separate your female from her mate.
Your flock needs structure, not chaos where they are left alone in room allowing the conditions of a colony breeding setting. Remove all hiding places and nesting sites from the room and cages as well.
If need be, house your budgies separately by gender.

This is a less than desirable situation that needs to be addressed urgently.

Yes, it's normal and it will take them time to adjust to the new changes.
In order to help your budgies settle and to decrease the anxiety and stress levels, you can cover the cages on 3 sides (leaving front part of cage uncovered). Having some background sound/music from the TV or radio will also be helpful.
