Julie, and anyone else with this problem. I've been breeding parakeets for over 5 years,and have found they prefer a nesting box, for privacy. This is a wooden box about 81/2 X81/2 (or9X9), with a hinged lid on top. None of my 15 females liked any nesting material in their box-they threw it out every time I tried it. They normally lay one egg every 2nd day, from 4-8 eggs, with 4-6 more consistently. After 21 days, they hatch out in the same manner. The males will also sit on the eggs, and feed and care for the young. I started handling my babies at about 10 days, so they were pretty tame when ready to be sold.
Hope this helps.
