    I know. He's already feeding Phleb on his own for the most part. However, when she pops her head out and sees millet, she comes right out to eat it. Silly girl.

    One very interesting thing I have found out about my breeding pairs is that when the hen is in the nestbox and I put it a bunch of goodies like lettuce, parsley, and millet... the male goes down to the new food and chirps a little bit, it sounds like any normal chirp but right when he does that, the hen pops her head out and comes out to eat. Its almost like he calls her to tell her about the new food, its so cute.

    Hey I'm just a beginner at photographing budgie porn! A few of my "real life" friends asked how it is they :ahem:... It seems Piper enjoys mating in the mornings, usually right when I'm waking up. So today I grabbed the camera.

I keep about 3 inches of very small wood chips (more like shavings) and then just take off the top part of the bedding with all the poop every week or whenever it gets a lot of poop. So far I havent had any splayed legs and Im really happy about that because splayed legs arent a pretty site when they grow up.
    Rainbow and Skittles laid their eggs on bare wood. They absolutely did not want anything in the box. Rainbow would kick anything I put in out of the entrance hole. There was no concave either, just a flat bottom, but the eggs did not roll around at all. When the babies are small, the feces are not wet, so to speak. They dry very quickly and become slightly powdery, and it is not hard to clean at all. Just scoop them right out, no mess. I didn't clean the box until the babies were about 3 weeks old, and that was because Rainbow could no longer keep up with the housekeeping He used to scratch the feces out of the entrance hole to keep the box clean on his own. And none of my birds have splayed legs either.

    I agree it is normal for them to mate all the time. Mine would mate anytime Skittles came out of the box. Poor Skittles...

    Right, I remember the last clutch with Piper & Bailey... the babies had tiny, all-white poops at first.

    Luckily she's got the eggs over a tiny bit of material now. I know she's doing a good job. And she's still letting me reach in the box to pet her.
