Please I need your help concerning Nestbox Size
 
Hey,
is it okay to use this nestbox for my parakeets couple ?

basically it's a cockatiel nestbox but it's the best I can find in my area concerning the quality of wood and the size, it's a bit large for a parakeet I guess but would it be a problem ?

I also found a nestbox is similar to this : 1:09 "
but I think it's too small for parakeets considering that the female lays between 4 to 6 eggs , what do you think ?

I think the nest box in the picture is fine. The nest boxes for the budgies in my place are around that same size ( I don't breed them though ). I don't think the nest box for cockatiels are a problem for budgies. the pair at my house did just fine.
hope this helps:)

Welcome to the forums! I have no budgie breeding advice, hopefully you'll receive good guidance.

Are you experienced with breeding, an awesome responsibility? I'd like to share a wonderful thread authored by a capable and caring breeder: http://www.parrotforums.com/breeding...art-breed.html

Yeah, Nestbox size doesn't really matter as long as it's large enough for the species of parrot you're raising...[B]Just be sure to always keep at least a half an inch to an inch of bedding in the bottom of the nestbox at all times until the chicks are weaned and out of it, otherwise you'll end-up with a bunch of splay-legged Budgies...The mother will keep throwing it out, and you just need to keep putting it back in, lol...Use either a shredded paper bedding, such as Carefresh (best thing to use by-far for baby birds), or some other type of bedding that has no scent at all and contains no wood-oils (NO cedar or pine chips/bedding, best to stick to one of the shredded paper beddings).
