I am not clear on this situation, but I do know that you can NOT provide a nest box outside the cage for the bird if that is what you are saying.

It would be best for you to purchase another bird, to live in another cage, to keep your bird company since you are gone for so many hours. It is obvious that you care, by the very fact you took the time to find this site and ask questions, thanks for doing that.

Your bird may be sick, please Find an Avian Vet right away for your bird. Call a breeder in your area if you can't find one in the phone book or Internet. Ask the breeder who they take their birds too.

You be in control, spend time with the bird before you leave and when you get home, but don't provide a nest box for the bird. I won't advise you further, because you really need an avian vet to examine your bird and talk to you about the proper care for your bird.

Your bird needed to be handfed when you got him, and now he may be dying of malnutrition and dehydration. One thing I know for sure, he is lonly with you being away so much.

Find an Avian Vet in your area and take your bird to them right away if he's not dead by the time you receive this. Most ALL new birds are usually sick with some kind of infection, so we recommend them being checked out by an Avian Vet within the first few days of having them.

Your bird is also not weaned or at least it sounds that way. He is dying right before your eyes, and help is a phone call and a drive away with an Avian Vet only. Use the Find an Avian Vet link for help in finding one, and I recommend you call a breeder in your area for help in finding an Avian Vet.
