Breeding & Hand Feeding Supplies

Birds have an instinctive need to nest, especially during their breeding seasons. During this time, female birds will often attempt to build nests with whatever is available to them-including cage bedding and even their own feathers if no other material is available. For this reason, it is important to provide your breeding or broody bird with an appropriate nest and nesting materials. This will enable them to satisfy their natural nesting urges and to prevent any stress from behaviors such as feather plucking.

Nesting fiber

Nesting Materials
We have several types of nesting material including felt nesting pads and nesting fiber. Felt nesting pads can be used to help protect the bottom of the nest box or nest. Nesting fiber is a natural cotton fiber that is ideal for nest lining and building. It comes in a self-contained dispenser that can be hung on the side of the cage.
