I Have a a Brother and a sister Budgies from the same cluth,, i noticed they where mating and playing with each other,, they are a very nice couple,, they love eachother,, but i'm afraid that they may produce some bad babies.. any advice,, and if i paired them 2gether and they laid eggs,, what problems may happen?!,, thay are very very compatible,, or do u think i should seperate them and get each one another couple?!
Separate them. They should not breed. I don't know much about breeding, but I have heard that the offspring will have a shorter lifespan and they can possibly have different genetic disorders. Budgies do not know better, they'd even breed with their aunt! I recommend finding them a mate or separating them until they are out of condition.
I wouldn't breed them! For some reason (I'm no geneticist) breeding from two animals that have the same lineage is an awful idea. Genetic defects will occur. They are just too much alike. Separate them.
Animals do this. In fact, I have had a cat who's own father got her pregnant!!! Eeeewww!
Any birds from the same parents will still be brother and sister... even if they only have one parent the same they will still be to closely related to breed together... to breed you need a hen and a male that are totally unrelated.
I had the same problem with having a brother and sister wanting to breed.I wouldn't let them for ages I tried everything to get them to breed with other birds I have
That was until the breeder that is sort of mentoring me who has bred budgies for over thirty years told me that taking one clutch and only one clutch from them should be ok.
He said that the deformities and things start when you start trying to breed the same line over and over
I am at the moments letting mine breed for one clutch they have 2 egss at the minute i will let you know how I get on
Because I'm mostly colony breeding it happened to me before. The pair laid 8 eggs; 7 hatch and there was no problem what so ever,BUT I will not encourage you to do this - the chance that something can go wrong is just too high.
