I was thinking about making/buying a breeding box for my parakeets to hide in/chew on/whatever, but will they breed if I gave it to them? I have 5 parakeets & only one is a male and he has never showed any signs on intrest of breeding in the females. I won't give them nesting material either. It's just that my parakeets, no matter how hars I try, won't be tame, and I don't want to have them raise a clutch and I won't be able to handfeed them. Parakeet Mania! I mean, I have a huge cage, but still!
So, is it okay to put a breeding box in? If they did lay I would replace the eggs with fake ones but I don't want to have to resort to that.
