I have one pair of budgies and male trying for matting, but female refusing all the time, what to do, plz suggest, thank you….
It’s not uncommon for female budgies to initially reject the advances of a male budgie. There are a few reasons why this might be happening.
Firstly, the female budgie may not be ready to mate. Budgies become sexually mature at around 6 to 9 months of age, so if your birds are younger than this, it may just be a matter of waiting until the female is ready. But it is recommended females be at least 12 months old.
Secondly, the female budgie may not be in the right condition to mate. This could be due to illness, stress, or inadequate diet. Make sure your birds have access to a nutritious and balanced diet and ensure they are in a calm and stress-free environment.
Thirdly, the female budgie may simply not be interested in the male. Budgies can be picky about their mates, and just like humans, some individuals may not be attracted to each other.
To encourage your budgies to mate, make sure they are in a suitable breeding environment. This should include a nest box or breeding cage with nesting material such as shredded paper, and plenty of food and water.
It’s also important to observe your birds closely to ensure that they are healthy and happy. If you notice any signs of illness or stress, consult with a veterinarian or avian specialist for advice.
In some cases, it may take some time for your budgies to establish a successful breeding pair bond. Be patient, and continue to provide them with the care and attention they need to thrive.
