Sprite, our beautiful green budgie, , is currently in and out of the nestbox. She is laying eggs, and although they are infertile, she is doing well to get them in the nestbox and visit them regularly. Hopefully this trial run will result in at least one successful clutch of little ones down the road.
Have you ever wondered how to install a nestbox in your budgie’s cage? We have a great video that shows you exactly how! Check it out:
Siri and Soma are still laying eggs in our nestbox! There are two left which I haven’t checked, so I will let them sit for another day and then I will pull them, make sure they are infertile, and then discard them. This is unless there are baby chicks forming, which is highly unlikely. I will be heading to our local hardware store today to find some materials to patch up the hole where the nextbox currently attaches to the cage. This will allow me to remove the box and hopefully discourage the girls from laying more eggs (the holidays are coming…take a break budgies, whew)! For now though, happy sitting ladies!
