Budgie Breeding 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.

May be getting ahead of myself, but I found a genetic calculator and had to see what Herm and Iz's chicks might look like! I think I entered everything in correctly... Not positive, though! This is what the results for the chicks would be, again, if I entered it in correctly. I'm super excited to see the mutations they express, being the genetics nerd that I am

Hermes is a sf goldenface cobalt greywing clearflight pied. Though, I don't know for sure if he's a clearflight or a poorly marked dominant pied or what. I'll know more if/when they have chicks. The calculator didn't have an option for clearflight but they had dutch pied so I entered that.

Izzy is a grey recessive pied cinnamon opaline.

I think I entered in the correct options...I had to add a blue to Izzy's because it kept giving me a green-grey mutation. And I think the 1.0 is for the male and 0.1 is for the female...I just guessed and since Izzy's the female with the cinnamon, her chicks won't express it, and it looks like that's what the calculator gave me.

Haha thanks. And yes, I'm very excited! Part of it is also that it's the calm before the storm (aka Finals) in school, so I've had a lot more free time than usual!


And when I was measuring out this week's supplements for the birds, I found a really, really stupid error. The scale wasn't measuring it in grams (*face palm*), so the prior week's amount of supplement was waaaay to small. I'm glad it was way too little and not too much- that could've been dangerous for the birds!

So the birds actually get about 1 1/2 tsp of supplement per week...not 0.1 tsp I was really confused because I thought that it was a very small measurement but I just thought it was very potent. And I do give them 1-2 days free of supplement as recommended!

Guys I'm leaving for Europe tomorrow morning! When I get back it'll be time to breed Hermes & Izzy!

Both are acting more and more like they ought in breeding condition. Both are more active and vocal. Izzy is chewing and gnawing a lot more. Next time I post, it'll be when I put the nest box in and hopefully Izzy'll lay eggs so I can start them an official breeding journal!

Enjoy your trip, Katie.
We'll be interested in hearing all about it as well as how Hermes and Izzy are doing when you return.

Best wishes!

I'm back from Europe and wow does it feel good to be home again! I will probably post some pictures and share about the trip on Herm & Iz's photo thread or art thread or may just make a thread for it. I'm still jet lagged from the time difference so will be heading to bed after this so I'll worry about that tomorrow

Just sharing that I put the nest box in today! My brother is studying to be an Engineer so I enlisted him to help. Though, to be honest I probably could've done it myself. It's not exactly rocket science I just used some bolts, washers, and nuts to connect it to the cage. While I was gone they ate an entire mineral block (it was a small one, but they have had it for 2 years and hadn't made much of a dent in it until I left!) So I think that's a good sign and here's hoping they breed this summer!



Scouting it out. They are certainly getting used to it quicker this year than last year, which is what I was hoping for. I haven't seen Izzy go in yet but I wasn't expecting her to the first day. I may have put some millet by it to entice them over

I believe it would be best if you were at home with your pair of birds through the whole time they are going through this. Both the mating, laying the eggs, and as the babies grow to adulthood. Nobody is closer or cares more about your birds than you do.
