My budgies keep bitting the nest?

My female & male budgies are always bitting the nest house why is that?


Hi Migual,

Your budgies should have a parakeet nest box that is made of wood. They only need a nest box if you are trying to breed them. You should only have one pair of birds in each cage. If you have more than one pair in the cage, then they are fighting over the nest box. Sometimes a pair will chew on the box or the entry hole, as a way of making it to their liking.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,
