Default nest or Hamic ?

I was wondering how many of you use or recommend having something like a nest, Hamic or one of those fuzzy bird hide aways . I have a single budgie and I'm not sure if something like that would be used or appreciated at all.

Hey June! It's actually not recommended to give a budgie a hammock, nest, or box to sleep in. Budgies see these as nesting sites and tend to try and use them as such, causing unwanted aggression and sometimes unwanted eggs. They cause a ton of stress and budgies don't even like to use them to sleep with or anything. It's best not to include anything like that in your cage.

Emily is correct.

Budgies naturally sleep on a perch, they don’t need nests, hammocks or snugglehuts.
Such objects in the cage can lead a budgie into thinking breeding is a good idea and cause the strain of unwanted egg laying. The fabrics can catch toenails leading to injury and can also be chewed, if fibres are swallowed, this can lead to crop impaction.
As cute as they may look, they are completely unnecessary and a potential source of problems.
We need to think like a budgie.

Ok perfect I didn't get one yet. I just didn't want to deprive him of something he may have really liked or needed.

I totally understand that! It's good to ask as well before doing something you're unsure of!

In addition to the excellent information already provided, it is important to remember that the snuggle-huts, tents, and other fabric toys are dangerous for your budgie.

Budgies can easily get their toenails stuck in the fabric resulting in severe injury.
Additionally, ingestion of fabric fibers can lead to crop impaction.
