Budgie Breeding Before breeding any species, it is important to learn as much about the animals, their personalities and the best practices to follow for responsible and ethical breeding prior to making the commitment to take on the responsibility.

Default Looking for a nursery box (or more)

Hi there!

I have been searching for a lot of things so that when I get my budgies they are set up for conditioning from the get go. Things I have locked down are: My seeds for the quality seed mix as per the quality mix info here, 2 vision breeding boxes and my first males for normal budgies(I technically co-own them so...)
I'm still looking for suitable cages and stand as well as high quality budgies that I am sourcing around the country.

I cannot find nursing boxes for when the chicks are being hand fed. Whether I do this or not I just want to have it at least stored away. Can anyone point me to where I can buy a nursing box, be it on ebay or amazon or whatever haha. I have a contact in the US who is going to ship me my Vision Breeding Boxes so as long as it can be sent to him that's all good.

Thanks for all your time and patience.

~SASB

Hi Chelsea,

For a nursery box (that the chicks would only be in temporarily), you can use a plastic "critter keeper" such as the one linked below. It is important that the box isn't too large, or heat will not stay in as much.
https://www.amazon.com/Kritter-Keepe...KRQEGC8DNTDW8R

Additionally, are you planning on co-parenting the chicks? Offering only supplemental feedings and letting the parents take care of most of the feeding ensures that the chicks are mentally and emotionally healthy as well as physically healthy; connecting with their parents ensures they know how to "be a budgie". As long as they are handled daily and are introduced to humans in a positive, loving environment from the time they are chicks, they will not be any less "tame" than exclusively handed budgies.

This method ensures that the chicks are well socialized and tame without depriving them of their parent's company. See the below link for more information:

I hope that is helpful!

Thanks so much for that wonderful insight. Good read and I fully understand what is happening in that method.

I will most probably make use of that method but the nursery box, I would like to have in case of emergency. So yeah.

Thanks so much again!

You're quite welcome!

Nursery boxes are also quite useful to put chicks in when cleaning the nest box and cage so they can stay warm and out of trouble
