Most parakeets from mustaches start to breed in the spring just before the warmer months. Although the playing times vary depending on the location, you can almost always say that it's time because the female will begin to sing before spawning.

The mother will produce between two and four eggs. She will incubate for about 22 days. Just before the kids hatch, a small hole is made from chick inside the egg so it can breathe. Cova usually follows within 24 hours.
Feeding:Moustached Parakeets are omnivores and can eat anything humans can. Their basic diet should consist of seeds and pellets. It’s important both food items be rotated weekly to ensure the parrot receives the maximum amount of nutrients. It’s not recommended to feed the parrot just a seed diet or just a pellet diet as too much of anything is not good for the bird.Along with the base diet, the parrot should be given a daily assortment of fresh vegetables and fruits. These food items can easily be cut up the nightbefore while preparing dinner. Moustached Parakeets also enjoy warm foods. Steaming fresh broccoli, carrots, or squash will quickly be realized—just be sure the food is not too hot as it can burn the parrot.If a Mustache Parakeet is fed an assortment of foods, the bird should have minimal problems and can live between 20 to 30 years.
