So I have recently purchased a parrot breeding box for my indian ringnecks.
Is there something I need to line it with before I put it in her cage?? (pine chips, cotton, etc.)
Please help! :)
Thank you!

Preparing Indian Ringneck breeding box

If you got the kind of box where the floor of the inside is carved out making a lower place in the middle, you will need nothing in it. If you want to put something in there for her to tear up you can use clean, unprinted newspaper. You can get this from your local newspaper office where they have partially used rolls and sell them very cheap. We use these for our bird's cage pans, and it is clean white newspaper with no print or other harmful chemicals in it. Just ask them where they keep the partially used rolls because you want them for your birds, and they'll point you in the right direction. Do not use printed newspaper or any other kind of printed papers as inks are poison.

Do not use cotton, pine chips, any kind of wood chips because all of those will cause injury and death to your birds.Also, have both birds examined by an Avian Vet ONLY to make sure they have no infections because any type of bacterial infection is instantly transferred to the babies, and they will not last long with infection of any kind. We always recommend having breeders examined before breeding because after is too late for all the birds.

Thanks for writing,
Linda
