Talking Eggs!

It's been a while, Clip has been fitting in great. A few weeks ago they started breeding and right now they have five eggs! In the pictures there are only four, but they have five, more to come soon.

Jessica, congratulations on the eggs! You have read through all the stickies in the Budgie Breeding section by now, correct? It never hurts to review everything during this exciting time

Also, what are you using as bedding in the nestbox?

Jessica,

While I want to congratulate you on the eggs, I'm concerned about the fact you've allowed your budgies to breed.

If I'm correct, one of your birds is over 5 years old and the other you just got in March.

Introducing Two Budgies

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.

Budgies should not be bred before they are a minimum of 12 to 18 months old nor once they reach four years of age.

Better choices for nest box bedding would be:

Pine shavings (not dust)
Aspen shavings (not dust)
or
Carefresh bedding

Did you have the two birds on a conditioning diet prior to allowing them to breed?

I've been using a few of my bird friends and my boyfriend as reference lol She's about 5 and he's only 2 so I was a bit worried but it's going great, and I am using cotton balls as a nesting material. I didn't want to leave the box bare and she threw almost everything else I tried out haha.

I have had Pippy for five years, and the other one I've had a little over a year, They've bonded well, and I think they're even more bonded now she makes cute little happy noises all the time.

Once they've completed raising this clutch, please be sure you do everything possible to discourage any breeding in the future.

Breeding any budgie over 4 years of age is detrimental to the bird's health and also puts the offspring at risk.

When We Don't Want Eggs

Using cotton balls as bedding material is definitely not recommended.
Ingestion of the fiber can lead to crop impaction and the fibrous material may easily smother the chicks.

I am concerned about the cotton balls. The nest usually has something more firm so the hen can roll the eggs easily and there is nothing that can catch on little toenails or get trapped in the chicks beaks. It is normal for a hen to remove bedding, it doesn't mean she doesn't want it, it is a strong instinct to chew out a hollow in a tree and removing the bedding gives a similar feeling of creating a nest. Usually you would add some soft shavings or bakers bran once she is settled so the chicks have a safe bedding. It may pay to remove the cotton as the chicks could easily get tangled or ingest some of it.

I planned on that, I've been worrying too much (Of course for nothing, she's very healthy) this will be her only clutch

I'm very glad to hear you will not allow her to breed again.

What are you planning to do with the chicks when they are fully weaned and fledged?

Please be sure you change out the bedding in the nest box right away.

I plan on keeping one for sure, and I have a few close friends who are interested in the others. Once they're out of the box I'll be moving them to a different cage and working on hand training them, I'm going to try to get m friends to come and work with their budgie too, and after they're grown enough I'll let my friends have their new budgie. I plan on getting nesting material and changing it out today, I've been researching what would be the best for her.
