Is A Perch Needed

Recommended Posts

Guest cranberry

Is it necessary to have a perch on the nest box? This is for a breeding cage setup, not an aviary. The ones on buybudgies.com don't have perches.

It is really helpful to have a perch on the nestbox, both projecting inside and out. If not the hens often scatter the eggs trying to jump out of the box when you check the nestbox. When scattering the eggs they become addled and wont hatch. If it doesnt come with one, its easy to fit one. Drill bit the right size for the dowel you fit so it sits in there tight.

I use a small knotted rope with climbing gear for the hens... They are cute in their harnesses and helmets :)

I have two pairs that dislikes this perch , altough it seems not to be too loose , they menage to push the perch into the nest box somehow .

 

I am not sure if this is a way of saying , I do not want to breed ;)
