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.

Default Curiosity About Breeding! Not Important Just curious

Alright, so I have two females (Sunshine and Pearl) which means I'm obviously not going to breed them anytime soon as I only have a cage that can comfortably house 2-3 budgies without me feeling as though they are cramped.

I would, though, enjoy one day buying a second cage of about the same size and introducing two males to my pair, possibly breeding if any of them took to each other. Of course, again not anytime soon as the two of them are still getting used to me and each other. (Pearl was rescued as she seemed to have run away, so I introduced a second budgie taking precautions.)

The problem with this is that I haven't the slightest clue how old Pearl is OR if she will ever successfully breed! I've heard that Albino budgies like Pearl will sometimes accidentally crack their eggs or they'll all be infertile. This is just fine, I wouldn't blame her as I know albino budgies must be high demand for their color. Could genetics be an issue for her? She's also very cautious of my hand, possibly due to her previous home, and clumsy. I couldn't find anything on albino budgies out there, so if anyone knows that would be cool!

P.S., if anyone knows how to add pictures I'd love to know so maybe I could have their ages defined!

Thank you

It is not advisable to breed a budgie when you are unsure of its age so I would not recommend breeding Pearl at any time in the future.

With regard to pictures for age estimates, you'll want to post those in the Gender section of the forum.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as PhotoBucket and follow the steps in these instructions:

How to Post Pictures from PhotoBucket

For gender and/or mutation help - Lighting and Angle DOES matter

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them!

Best wishes!
