Hi, I'm concerned about my step-daughter's budgies. She has 20 birds in her bedroom, they never go outside, although her father has built an aviary. 3 have recently died. She lets them breed & they quite often eat the chicks. How often should she clean there cages & water? I think it should be more than once a week. Also what type of cleaning solution do you use to clean your breeding cages after chicks have hatched, as she continually lets them breed without cleaning anything or giving the birds vitamins she just gives them seed, no fruit or variety in diet.

Hi Tracey,
Yes they has to go out side in
the aviary as they need the sun to keep healthly &
to get vitamin D from the sun they should get at
lease 6 hours of sun a day.
They must have fresh water each
day & fresh seed as the husk off the seed will sit
on top of the seed & in the end the birds are
starving.
Use a product called LICE &
MITE SPRAY to spray the nest boxes & also the
birds as they may have lice or mites on them. Give
the nest boxes a good soaking spray as the mites
hide in the cracks.
I use 1/2 cup of hospital grade
disifectant & 1 cup of white vinegar to 8 liters
of water I scrub all my breeding cabnets & nest
boxes weekly or when they need doing between my
weekly wash as some are likely to be messy.
They should be wormed at lest
ever 3 months using a good wormer.
as for them eating their babies
is due to the lack of vitamins & greens such as
silverbeet; corn on cob or (loose corn) carrot;
peas NO LETTUCE or MILK THISTLE.
Hope this helps. Kind
Regards Col.
