Sun conure nesting material?

Hi, I have a breeding pair of sun conures. I have a nest box in their flight cage but no nesting material. My hen is now pulling her chest feathers for brooding I think she will lay soon but I don't know what to use in the nest box

Re: Sun conure nesting material?

I personally don't use nesting material, but the breeder I'm in contact with (he breeds Sun Conures) tells me he just puts down some paper towel, newspaper (really any shreddable material that's safe) and they rip it to shreds themselves and make it their own nest box. If you wanted to take it one step further, there's some great nesting materials you can buy online, but they're not that cheap compared to paper towel.

Good luck breeding your Conures!! Lets hope they have happy and healthy babies!!
