11. November – Start winding down the breeding season
The first week of November you stop the liquid regiment of vitamins and calcium and put your birds back on plain water.
During the last week in November it’s time to start winding down the breeding season and start removing any nest boxes that are empty or not being used.
If you have babies in the nests you should wait till they leave the nest as removing some of the nest boxes may disturb the adults and they may abandon any remaining babies.
Again, you could just leave the breeding/winter mix in along with the daily Gouldian seed mix year round to simplify things if you like.
