I have a female budgie that has one chick that is 20 days old. I was wondering if the hen should be leaving the nest more then she does. She only leaves for no longer then 5 minutes and that is at most three times a day. Thank you for any help given
Hey, is it okay to use this nestbox for my parakeets couple ? basically it's a cockatiel nestbox but it's the best I can find in my area concerning the quality of wood and the size, it's a bit large for a parakeet I guess but would it be a problem ?
I am currently breeding a pair of green budgies and so far I have two baby budgies in the nesting box. They are around 3-4 weeks in age, and there is a lot of droppings in the nesting box. Sadly, one of the baby budgies have severely splayed legs, and tried using the sponge method. The baby budgie with the splint is occasionally slipping on the droppings and so I need to clean the nesting box. One time I tried cleaning the nesting box but then the budgie parents were terrified and they started flying all over the cage. Is there a way for me to clean the nesting box without scaring the parent budgies as much? I'd appreciate the help, Aquafroste
