Re: Budgies won’t even go into their nesting box!

2 years is too young to breed really. Yes physically they can breed but it's like saying a 13 year old should have a baby because everything is working. As for the male it's true they may not be bonded and he may not have had his hormones yet. Being a pet shop budgie he is likely not even a year yet.

Have you ever taken them to a Certified Avian Vet? If not I would recommend check-ups before doing any breeding. Also get hands on experience with hand-feeding and the like beforehand. So many people end up with dead birds because they watch a youtube video on hand-feeding and surprisingly get the feeding wrong because nobody is there to tell when mistakes are happening
