I did a little more research on the subject of Nestboxes and Tents etc.
According to the Book "A Guide to Popular Conures", it states "For a Conure, settling in means becoming familiar with its new surroundings and secure a roost. Conures unlike many other parrots, generally favour a nestbox or log for this purpose"
entrancedbymyGCC: As far as tents go, the book does mention Conures have been known to lay eggs in them! The book doesn't mention the tents necessarily encouraging breeding behaviour. I would imagine its like Michael said if its there, it wouldn't necessarily discourage it.
BTW: Michael the taming method works a treat even with a bird that's over a year old. The male is now safe to handle! Thanks
