How do I get my budgies to produce babies?
First of all, congratulations on your blog. It is very informative and easy to understand.
I have two budgies - a mother and son. The white female has produced 2 clutches of eggs while I've had her (in a nesting box), and I know she is fertile since the blue male I have is her son. Both times, I have left the eggs in the box for about 2 months but they still did not hatch. The female sits on them for a time but then seems to lose interest and only goes in the box to get away from the male!
This is the first time I have tried to breed birds and, although this might make you laugh, have no idea of their mating habits. Could it be that I am "disturbing" them in the act, since I sometimes interfere if I think that they are attacking each other?
Thanks for your help.
