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.

Hi again,

Another aspect that is worth mentioning is the fact that the pairs you have set up may not be compatible to breed. This can happen even with budgies that have a nice bond. Just because a pair gets along well and has a good friendship, it doesn't necessarily mean the pair will be well matched to breed and this goes for budgies who preen each other, feed each other at times, etc.
Also not all budgies, even adult ones have the right frame of mind and maturity to breed and support their mates during the whole journey. While it's true that some will eventually get there, others are just simply not fit for the task.

It's unfortunate that you can't get to an avian vet. If you really can't make the trip there, try ringing around different vets, and don't be afraid to ask questions. Ask how much experience the vet has with birds, how many birds they treat all that kind of thing. You can also ask if they treat a lot of budgies. Also don't be afraid to stand up for yourself. I have had vets treat me like I was an idiot, because I was bringing in a budgie. A good vet will be happy to answer any questions you have about your birds. While going to an avian vet is the best option, if it's really not something you can do, at least try to find a vet who is very knowlegeable with birds and treats them regularly. Keep in mind that just because a vet will see birds, doesn't mean they have extensive knowledge and experience with them.
