The budgie nest box is a little box availed by budgie breeders as a place where budgies in confinement can lay their eggs. The perfect size is 30 x 20 x 20 cm so inches that would be 12 inches x 7.9 inches.
Budgies breed in a nest box with the entry hole at the top or the side. Nest boxes can be attached to the outside of a cage or even placed inside the cage if the door is big enough.
We either breed budgies with a pair to a cage and one nest box, or we breed them individually.
Budgies can breed without a nesting box, but this is not ideal for their health and well-being. It’s recommended to have a well-equipped nesting box set up during the breeding phase for budgies.
In wild birds and breeding birds, egg laying is a natural, seasonal process.
Diy Nesting Box for Parakeets
A parakeet breeding cage s dimensions should be no less than 25 x 15 x 15. Plastic storage bins make a great way to have nesting boxes on a tight budget.
Parakeets don’t need much to breed in the wild, and a dry floor with a soft nesting material will be fine. Wood is the best material for building a nest box, as long as it is at least 15mm thick.
Soft woods, such as pine and cedar, are easy to cut and their natural resins ensure a long life. Nest boxes can be moved from place to place inside your coop if need be.

Budgie Breeding Nest Box
Budgies that breed without a nest box are more likely to have problems with infertile eggs, poor incubation, low hatching rates, and lost chicks. Unscented pine shavings are widely available in most pet supply stores.
Budgie Nesting Box Plans
The budgie nest box is a small box available to budgie breeders as a place for budgies to lay their eggs. This is my favorite plan for a bluebird nest box, and it will also be used by Tree Swallows and the Titmouse.
