Looking at getting a budgie as a family pet

Perplexity, 14 March 2020

So uh,, this is my first time breeding budgies and if you're asking, yes ive got everything prepared. My only concern is if my male and female budgies are getting along, usually i see them squabblong or figgting whatever and other times i see them feedong eachother food and occasionally trying to mate (i say this because im not intirely sure that my male budgie knows how to 'mate' he just kinda taps her on the back). Anyway my hen has just layed two eggs at the moment, and is keeping them incubated, the only problem is that she wont let my male budgie get anywhere near the nesting box; which im assumping shes just overprotective, also im worried if she'll starve lookong after the eggs if she's not going to be able to eat at the same time. Um, is there anything i can do as such, because im just leaving them be right now.

I was at my son home in Monticello ny there are no vets for birds I took my budgie to a dr that I thought knew bird business . He told me the bird had stresss that night parakeet had loose blood stools no feathers under his wings. The bird was getting weaker and no where to go emergency the next day bird died. It hurt so bad how can a vet who did nothing to help my baby. I have no use for this dr. there is no other place to go. I would never move up there unless I meet a bird vet dr..I live IN Brooklyn NY and have a vet for birds. But this was emergency. what was wrong I don't know he use to go above our fam lamp while his brother stay on the blades I put some cream under his wings I thought is was raw. His brother is so lonely now I rescue this bird that died he flew out of someone window . What floor did he fly out of I don't know HIs wings were cut. NOw he is dead. I only had him 3 yrs. Now I looking to adopt another parakeet for his brother who is older than he was.

I have had my Budgie for 2 1/2 months. He will eat Millet from my fingers but is still very wary, I have hoped to be able to let him out of the cage but would he go back in if not finger trained.
