i have heard that you can simply rearrange the cage/environment ever so often. the changing often makes the birds uncomfortable and will not TRUST having a clutch due to thinking you will move the eggs too. not sure how true this is.
i have not put my birds together yet. still in training with Topaz. not sure what sex Topaz is yet either. Sky is a female, i know that much.

i am sure you will get some more useful info from someone who has more experience than myself.

good luck with what you do choose to do.

I just have all boys but like SweetNess, have heard that you can rearrange the cage each week during breeding to discourage breeding HOWEVER this does NOT guarantee they will not breed anyway. They don't know the rules!!

I have had both males and females together and never had anything happen........till this year! now I have 4 chicks and one more egg to possibly hatch. I can't tell you what was different this year as to the last 3. Good luck!

I have a flock of only one...but have read in addition to rearranging the cage, you can limit their exposure to daylight. Also if you get eggs and don't want them to hatch you can buy fake eggs to replace them with or put them in the freezer for awhile. The eggs not the budgies!

again just stuff I've read. No personal experience with yet!

I asked this same question last year and unfortunately, they do not neuter birds but 1. DON'T get one of those "cozy" hide away beds or those ones that look like a nest because that will encourage them to breed there. My vet, and what I read, said to not provide any "nesting" conditions in their cage, and when the female's cere turns brown and crusty and the boys is a really dark blue, seperate them for a while. You can trick them into thinking it is winter by covering their cage at 4:30 pm and keep moving their cage to different rooms during breeding season, so they are don't feel "at home" in one spot. The only problem is once the female's cere turns brown, it pretty much stays that way, so, like now, I can't tell if my girl is in breeding mode because her cere has been brown for 9 months. I hope these tricks work for mine as well because I cannot have baby birds either..I already have 4.

Emily's cere was dark brown for months...it just went back to a very light tan last week.

I have males and females all in the same cage. I did breed on pair last year (We have a nesting cage). I don't plan on having more babies so will not be opening the nesting cage for them.
I do have white marbles if needed. We are cleaning their cage everyday do hopefully that will prevent nesting in the future. They have not nested in the large cage. There are 10 of them in a 6ft long cage both males and females.

i have 3 new babies. the ladies i have are nearly 4 and don't want anything to do with any of them. i was hoping that i would have at least 2 males out of the 3. if i do get some males, is there any way to get the old hags to bond with the young fellows?
