    How many times do they copulate?

    Question of the day for me is....do budgies mate ONCE to fertilize their clutch or do they have to mate to fertilize a single egg?

    Budgies just mate & mate & mate.
    I had a pair mated more then 50 times but not a single egg laid.

    thanks

    Thanks, Clint, for the reply.

    I don't know why I was wondering that yesterday, but for some reason I thought I had read somewhere that for each egg they have to copulate. I called a few of the breeders in town here and that question stumped them! Not that it matters, but was just curious.

    I have never seen any of mine mate. I watch so closely but they must be "sneaky"...LOL
