Breeding Budgies is not easy. It is not as simple as getting a breeding cage, adding a nest box, and throwing two birds together.
The only thing you can do is provide budgie care by providing healthy diets and stress free environments. Budgies require a very good diet when breeding.
They require 10 to 12 hours of daylight, plenty of water, lots of the proper foods, and a good nesting area.
Expect your birds to breed between October and March, or whenever it rains. When the male wants to breed, he’ll approach the female and make chattering sounds.
