Hey everyone
I'm from Australia and I have 4 budgies, 3 girls and 1 boy. They live in a large aviary together and I do a big clean of the floor every month.

Sky - 3-4 years old, male. Light blue. Loves to sing and fly around the aviary. Talkative.
Pickle - 3 years old female. Green and yellow pied. Hates water baths. Gets annoyed easily, but is an adorable puff ball.
Unnamed #1 - 3 and a half years old female. Violet. Loves apples and lettuce. Very quiet and calm.
Unnamed #2 - 3 and a half years old female. Violet. Loves apples, walnuts and water baths. Slightly aggressive. Sleeps upside down. More slim than the other violet.

Sky has mated with all of the females, yet they have not had any eggs. The aviary has two nesting boxes and their diet consists of seed, fruit, leafy greens and cuttlebone and fresh water. I'm guessing Sky is infertile?
Pickle can not fly. Her wings have never been clipped, but before I got her she was in a small cage with the violet budgies. I have owned the violets and Pickle for about 3 years now, as I got them when they were a few months old.
The reason the two violets are unnamed is because they were my older brothers birds. However he is leaving home soon so he gave me them. He has never fed them, given them medicine or cleaned the aviary, as I have been doing that. A few days ago he gave them to me and I dunno what to name them. He earlier named them Governor and Pomegranate, but doesn't know which ones. Plus I don't really like those names, so if you have any name ideas please tell me :)

Thankyouuuuss

Your birdies are gorgeous!
I strongly suggest you remove the nestboxes as broody budgies can be aggressive and you have three hens and only two boxes.

There's no need to have the boxes even if they like them. Some of mine have never seen any box but the one they hatched in, and the ones that have were perfectly fine when I removed them.
I do not mean to be rude I just want your birds to be happy and safe. :)

Oh ok! Thanks you :pinksmile:

Welcome! I agree with @AussieBird there is no need for a nest box unless you breed :)
Thankyou :pinksmile:
