    Eating Their Nest!!!

    Hey everybody. I put a cardboard nest in my cockatiels cage and they are eating it. Why are they eating their nest? Is it bad for them? I also put some duck tape to hold the nest together and they have eaten a little of that too! Do I need to take the nest out?

    Cardboard nests do not work. The tape, if they chew on it is toxic, and can kill them. Remove the box immediately. Go to a pet shop and get a wooden nest box. Do not use any other nest, including happy huts or cloth tents either. Just the wooden box!
