Conure Nesting Material Help

Sponsored Links
I have a pair of sun conures and they threw all of the pine shavings out of their box. I refilled the box, and they threw it all out again. (I know that they are known for cleaning out their nests before they lay eggs). When I went to fill the box for the third time, they had already laid an egg. Now there are 4 eggs in the box and no nesting material. I was scared to add any after eggs were laid.

My concern is for the babies when they hatch. Are they going to be ok on the hard floor of the nest box or do I need to try and add nesting material before they hatch? If so, any suggestions for me?

The first egg is supposed to hatch later this week, so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
