Budgie Breeding Before breeding any species, it is important to learn as much about the animals, their personalities and the best practices to follow for responsible and ethical breeding prior to making the commitment to take on the responsibility.

Default Budgie Rope Nest

Hi everyone! So I am building an outdoor aviary for my budgies. I have the typical wooden boxes for breeding, however, during the summer months it can get up to 100 degrees here in Texas. I found this cotton rope nest thinking the babies & parents wouldn’t get as hot as they would in a box.....any thoughts on this particular type of nest?? FYI it states in the image that the nest is for budgies, Cockatiel, canary, etc.

If you are a breeder, we don’t advocate random aviary (colony) breeding.

Individual cage breeding with parents carefully selected by you for health/longevity, and lack of health issues is the best way. Colony breeding is considered “old school” and has many downfalls as compared to cage breeding. Especially in a very prolific species where short life spans from bad genetics are caused by breeding in this fashion, we encourage you to please read the Stickies in the breeding section for tips on cage breeding, and why to not colony breed.

Also, I wouldn’t use that nest. The rope strings can potentially cause ingestion and impaction or entanglement of tiny toes and feet. Also, that isn’t the style of nest that budgies prefer. If they’re really broody they’ll be less particular, but it’s definitely not ideal.

Ok I will stick with boxes.

On another note... I do not breed odd ball birds. My birds are always healthy and provided with egg-celent care.

The purpose of Talk Budgies is to promote the *best practices* for the health and well-being of budgies.

We do not condone colony breeding due to the inherent risks and dangers.

Individual Breeding Cages - Why They Are SO Important

If you've read the many Budgie Articles and Stickies throughout Talk Budgies, you'll know that Cotton Rope is dangerous (as RavensGryf indicated) both because birds can get their toenails stuck in the fibers as well as the fact that ingestion of the fibers can lead to crop impaction.

Dangers of Fabric

If you have not taken the time to read all of the Budgie Articles and Stickies throughout the forum, I strongly recommend you do so.

There is a wealth of information here right at your fingertips.

You've been given great advice above

Rope or fabric is never good for budgies in any way.

Additionally, I'm sure you care a lot about your birds and give them a wonderful space to live in, a great diet, etc. But a lot of people may not think that colony breeding has significant dangers, either because they haven't learned about it or because problems have never happened to them, or both. It may be that your budgies so far have not had any issues, but that doesn't mean it will never happen. That's why it's always best to separate breeding pairs into their own cages to reduce stress as much as possible
