    nest boxes

    my mom thinks that birds use the boxes to :sleep sleep in. as a result, all our birds have a nest box. now, there are 2 eggs in the nest boxes. i dont want my birds breeding anymore so what do u suggest i should do? should i remove the box after they are done with the clutch? if i leave the box in there, but have it boarded up so they cant get in, will they still breed?

    Yes, remove the box once they are done. Cut down their daylight hours to 10-12 for 2-3 weeks after this clutch, and re-arrange their cage as well

    They do not sleep in them.

    Tell your Mom they are not for sleeping in, at least I've never seen a bird do that. Yes I would take the nest boxes out when they are done.

    I suggest you teach your mother about the birds and the bees.
