How can i get my budgies to breed?
i have 4 pairs and two nestboxes all of them are pairs but all they seem to do is kiss but never mate. one mele puts one leg on top of a femail but she bites him and gets him off. how can i make them breed?
they all bathe eachother. each of them have a mate 4 pairs will they breed if i keep them in a cage with only 2 nestboxes? the hens get in the nest boxes from time to time.

Well first of all a breeding pair should be in their own cage alone away from the other parakeets. So 8 birds in one cage with 2 boxes are going to start some DEADLY fights among the females and only the winner of those fights will survive. I suggest placing those 2 birds you want to have babies into another cage with a box by themselves. You can’t MAKE any kind of birds breed. They are like any other species needing to be bonded before that is going to happen. Your females are not allowing the males to breed them because they know with 8 birds in 1 cage with 2 boxes is going to cause trouble and they don’t want to breed in those conditions. Get 2 more cages, only place 1 pair in there you want to breed with 1 box to each 2 birds in each cage. Your birds will do the rest after you supply them with the right kind of caging and conditions TO have babies in. 8 birds to 1 cage is way to many birds in 1 cage as it is.
