Re: Conure Nesting Material Help

Have you tried untreated sawdust? I have the same problem with my sun conures. I usually wait until the eggs start to pip & then providing they don't mind nest inspections add a bit more pine shavings. Once the chicks hatch they don't bother removing it. But you do need something for the chicks to stand on.

There is a rice based cat litter that is safe for parrots. You could try that. The hen can safely chew on that & maybe she won't remove it. I have used the recycled paper in my budgies nest with great success.
