Where are you located, It isn't to hot to breed? Right now is the perfect time of the year in some states.

 

I can't help you witht he eggs and mites, but just because it is hot it doesnt mean you birds will get mites.

Whether or not your birds get mites has NOTHING to do with breeding in hot weather. If you got them during hot weather last time that was a pure coincidence.

 

What kind of mites anyway ?

okay, well probably not queensland. Just right now in the drier states it is breeding season, witch temperatures up to 38c. (but dry)

 

Throw your birds eggs away, and then only if they have mites treating them. As already mentioned by KAZ, It is purely coincidenc it happened last time..

STOP PANICKING !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Firstly you have assumed WRONGLY that hot weather means mites.

 

IT DOESNT.

 

The problem you will have is breeding through the hot weather

 

 

NOT MITES.

 

and as far as mites goes they affect birds and bird babies not eggs.

 

If you havent seen any mites you don t have them. And if you do have an ongoing mite issue you shouldnt be breeding the birds until you have it sorted out.

 

AGAIN I ask you ...what kind of mites are you worried about ??

I dont no what type of mites they are. but i have talked to a breeder before and they said that the boxs should be taken out at this time of year and i am not concerned about the eggs being effected but would like to no if it is okay to treat my budgies that have eggs if they get mites as it iratates them ????

Throwing eggs is better then dead chicks in the nest because of heat.

clancy i think you stated from the start that another breeder suggested you take boxes out

this was not because of the mites im sure but if it was he was most probably saying it as might suck the birds blood and the chicks to causing malnutrition in both and most normally death of young and sometimes mum n dad bird as their trying so hard to feed young while mite are sucking them dry

 

sure you feel bad tossing out the eggs but mate if your birds have mite you need to as you will end up with infested nest box by time chicks hatched then devastation of what i mentioned above

 

yes you could treat birds for mite but this will not treat the boxes and to treat the boxes you need to remove eggs to do this effectively thus could in turn kill the eggs anyway from moving them

i too would toss eggs away and treat birds clean boxes spray flight and all the mite treatment needs to dry on bird so ideally spraying a hen in a nest box ( a hen sitting on eggs ) could kill her by giving her a chill if she does not dry off before she goes back to sit also shes more likely to injest it as she will move her eggs around as needed and may get it in her mouth

 

id toss eggs out

if you dont want to fine

spray the birds and boxes but dont be sad if you end up with dead hens and unhatched eggs anyway :{

my budgies may get mights.

 

 

She hasnt got mites. She just thinks she may get them due to birds laying again in hot weather

birds should be treated up to date every however often the product you use says with me its every three months
