Tiel Breeding

Well,here I am all this time tryin to get my keets to breed,and I seen my pair of cockatiels mating earlier!!!

I had nothing set up for them to breed,they even have another roomate in the cage with them.I also only aquired them a couple weeks ago.

Well,upon reading up on tiel breeding,it seems as if their pretty much the same deal as breeding keets,I actually heard from some,that breeding tiels is harder,and some say its easier than keets.

I will be giving them a nest box today.
I'm going to move the one into another cage,to give them their space,and prevent any other problems.
I have to get cuttlebones and mineral blocks and set up as if it were a keet breeding setup.

I am looking for any other advice I can as to breeding a successful clutch of tiels.

well i have the cuttlebone,i dont have the mineral block in it,but its only like a buk or so,so i don't want to chance anything..im gonna get one hopefully in a few days.And I did put shavings in the box,same stuff as the keets,and the plastic egg too.I read one site though that said not to use that cuz it could hold moisture and mold,but thinkin thats when the babies are in there already and they poop..i def will be cleaning them when theyre bout 10 days old.I'm not experienced with newborn chicks,and know your not suposed to touch them,even though I've seen you hold yours at a few days old,You know your keets.These tiels are still fairly new here.Anything else???

cockatiels are more protective over there eggs then budgies are and are more prone to crop infections then budgies

Yes i've heard that too about being more protective.Spitfire won't even move if I open the cage to clean or feed now,i'm hoping they both will trust me when the time comes,and as for the crop infections...I guess i still have some research to do on that topic.

It's like that with parakeetts too,but whats the age where you can safely handle them without the abandonment worry??

Why were you even trying to breed your budgies to begin with?

I don't know what kind of answer I could give that won't start controversy.My friend has been breeding for years,and inspired an interest within me to breed.I do love the colors and seeing them from egg to grown.I bred cockers in the past,and will be later this summer.Everyone has a different reasoning.I can only say that the life I bring into this world will be well cared for.Her baby keets she chooses not to keep,already have a home.Mine too if I ever successfully have any.We wouldn't do it just to do it.We are responsible about it.My tiels were unexpected at this time,as I said before,they have not been enticed to go into condition in any way.They are new aquires and are being worked with to be handleable companions first and foremost.I have a home already for one of the tiels,before even any eggs.I am a stay at home mom,that can dedicate the entire day to the care of all my animals.
