Budgie and shoes

Hello everyone! My one year old budgie Thaii, has been interested in one of my old shoes and tries to go in and out of it. She has a mate, named Dexter and he is also 1yr+.

I only took the shoe to give to my Boyfriend's tiel since I'm birdsitting him, and he LOVES shoes, feet, and socks. c: (He would start heart dancing with your feet, and he likes to nap and sit on them. and poop.)

And my female seems to be really interested in it, and I did notice how closer Dexter and Thaii are getting.

Before I've bought a nesting box (Deciding to buy a bigger one) but they discouraged interest over the box, is it safe to give them a shoe instead? xD And yes I am still going to buy a nesting box when I get a chance either way, this is just curiousity.

Re: Budgie and shoes

I imagine the show appears to be something like a ground cavity to her... determined hens will lay anywhere 'nest like'. Probably not a good idea to allow her access to the show. (although it's been a couple months now... maybe she's no longer interested in it?)
