Usually you only want a nest for breeding. In the wild birds sleep perched on branches, they only make a nest when laying eggs and rearing young

but i heared that a nest encoureges them to breed, which im not sure i want because i dont know what steps to take and stuff you know, and im preety sure i have 1 male and 1 female because 1's cere is purple and the othere's is like white/pink, oh btw i want to report on my progress, they now eat from my hand! both of my keets, what i do is i place some seed in the center of my hand and put my hand near chucky or my female keet and they hop on and start eating freely, not scared or anything, i do this with both of my hands of course, 1 for each keet laugh when 1 finishes he tries to go to my other hand when theres some seeds left LOL, hungry boy smile lol

they let me feed them like this both in the cage and outside the cage, they also like hoping to my finger from some distance too, like i dont have tto put my finger near their belly's , wink

congrats! btw, if u have one male and one female, just ignore wat i said.. i have two males.. so it's cute.. breeding is really something u dont wanna do.. its worse than work.. its HARD work.. something i dont like lol guess wat? i taught both of my keets to kiss me! they kiss me on the lips too! its nothing like wat ur probably thinking .. its just cute.. its more keet love =) and i can get them to fly back to me.. and now, they dont even wanna get off.. (which is so annoying.. ) im trying to teach them to like baths.. so far.. i got nothing, they run away from the sink when they hear the water turn on lol

wow, i wish u can teach me how to get them to love baths! they are so smart.. they know exactly when im going to give them one.. (how do they get so smart?)
about kissing, i just first only kissed them on their head or stomach or their wings first, and i did it all the time. when they didnt mind, i kissed them on their beak, and they got so use to it, they try to do the same thing.. btw, if they close their eyes, that means they like it.. =) now all i do is be like a centimeter away from kissing their beak, and they kiss me =) i like to scratch them, so they get use to that.. but i just have them getting use to the idea of me scratching them, they dont like it yet. and u asked me how do i get my keet to fly back to me? its not easy, and they still dont do it that well. its just that they love hair.. and since im a girl, i have alot of it on my head. when im in the bathroom, the best place for them to sit without being uncomfortable is on me, so when i let them fly around, they realize, im a safe spot. when they get use to that idea, they will fly back to me whenever i sent them off, just so they can cushion up in my hair. =) its so cute..

they love my hair too , they like chewing on it, im a boy tho but yea they like being on my hair however i am unsure to make it so when i stand in some place in the room and they are sittong on the window for example and i call them, then they will come to my hand, it must be possible, but what is the 1 specific thing i need to focus on to achieve that? btw ill try kissing, do you say anything when you kiss them btw? like after they kiss you or before you kiss them?

my keets can do everything except that picking the block up and handing it to me.. now thats unbelievable.. im still trying to teach them to fly to and from my finger. its really hard. =) and when i kiss them. i make this kissing sound. they like it and most importantly, they know ur about to kiss them.
