CONS TO ALTERNATIVE NESTS
nests are good for one season, then into the trash they
I personally have better things to do then waste $5-$7 per nest per
and I'm sure I am not alone.
Other disadvantages to wicker nests include:
Wooden Nest boxes are just as much or more problematic then wicker as
they can be :
Unlike wicker nests
wooden nests can
be painted to prolong usability,
but this paint can easily chip/crack or peel and be digested by curious
little teething avians.

not think so and that is why I searched and finally found the ultimate
no easy way to do nest checks or
remove addled/bad eggs -very
hard to keep clean and dis-infect -easily
dis-assembled by bored
be replaced annually for
hygenic/bacterial illimination purposes
-much heavier then wicker nests and can in many cases damage cages at
vulnerable joints and openings.
-very in-convenient to store as it
does not fold to a width as small as a newspaper -harbor bacteria even after being
disinfected in bleach water, which
is evident when they are removed from storage and covered in moulds. -
safe to use for only 1 season if un painted as the porous

in aviculture) -Cost
of replacement is over $12 CAD per pair per season (recommended if you do not paint them)
