    So I just caught my Budgie in the act of mating with one of my Cockatiels. I wont make this question to complicated..

    Will the eggs she will lay be viable? I've read and heard its inpossible for the eggs to be viable if both parents are not Budgies. Is this true?

    Thanks,

    -Mustang

    Yes, that's true. The two species cannot reproduce together. They are not closely enough related for this to happen.
