i recently installed a nesting box into one of my budgie cages in hopes that they will breed. i put a few shreds of paper in the box but my female budgie has thrown these all out and began chewing the wood up. Is this normal or should i remove the box?

The purpose of this forum is to promote the BEST PRACTICES in the care of budgies for their optimal Health and Well-Being

You need to remove the nesting box immediately.

When you have mixed genders, it is very important to do everything necessary to prevent breeding.
Budgies are much healthier and happier when they are never bred.

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.
You have neither the knowledge nor the experience level to even consider breeding your budgies.

Respectfully, what the above posters/moderators are telling you is that if you don't have experience breeding bugdies, you should not be attempting to do so. On this forum, the moderators will not allow breeding advice to be given out to anyone who doesn't have breeding experience, because they want to protect the birds from owners who try to do this thinking it will be an easy husbandry hobby. But the birds - both the parents and the chicks - can suffer greatly if not done by experienced, ethical breeders. Which is why the advice you have been given is to remove the nesting box. Your question about whether the behavior is concerning is irrelevant. If you responded and showed that you have a lot of first hand ethical breeding experience, then your question may be answered.

Owning budgies for 5 years does not mean you are in any way qualified to breed them.

Your question WAS answered in my first post.

You need to remove the nest box immediately. You should NOT be breeding your budgies.
