If you look in the pictures section and search for my one of my lastest posts i have a picture of one, might be quite far back though.

That being said ( and I hope I did not offend you - that was not my intention at all), I'm guessing you cannot buy nest boxes in pet stores or online where you live? My box was 9 1/2 " long x 6 1/2 " wide x 6 1/2" tall. Both ends would slide up, but I never used that feature. The top was hinged and would open for nest box inspection and cleaning. The entry hole was 1 1/2" diagonal, and was on the left hand side of the front and had a small perch on the outside. My hen laid her eggs on the end opposite from the entry way. It did not have a concave, and my birds refused any type of bedding, so they laid the eggs on the bare wood. They did not roll around, even though the box was not entirely flat once it was hung. The box should be made out of wood, and it doesn't need to be very thick, mine was only 1/2" thick.

That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune--without the words,
And never stops at all... Emily Dickinson
Do you have a great picture of one of your budgies? Why not enter it in the Budgie of the Month Competition?!
