Why doesn't my budgies use their nest box?

0 votes

I have two budgies, male and female, and are both age appropriate for breeding. They are bonded, and i inserted a nest box so they can breed. It's been there for a couple days, and my momma bird or papa bird hasn't touched it one bit. I put some tissue inside, for coziness. There's a cavity on the bottom, so it's safe. They stay away from the box. And it's breeding season! Is anything wrong? They are all healthy too!

It's possible that your budgies don't like the space where the box is placed. Try moving it. Use a different flooring . You might want to check what material the box is made of as well.
