Are you sure you want to encourage breeding at this point? From your other post it looks like you're pretty crammed for space.

But giving them a nesting box and nest would likely encourage things further towards having babies. You seem to have too little space for the birds that you have. This would further crowd things. Not only that, but from your other posts it sounds like the pair is bullying your other bird. If they nest they are likely to become more aggressive.

How many birds do you have in each cage at this point? What are the actual dimensions of each cage?

How soon are you moving to America? It can be difficult to get just a few pets over the border--if you have too many birds it could become absolutely ridiculous trying to get them into the country. (Not to mention potentially expensive.)

she wants to know the measurements.. (example 2foot x 2 foot)

what size in measurement are your cages, that is how you know how many birds it should hold.

you have to measure it.. 2 ft per bird.. if you can not give your birds TWO SQUARE FOOT PER BIRD. then find them a home.

Thats the equivalent of you and someone else living in a 4ft by 4ft box, hardly any room to move, no room to rest properly, no toilet area.
How would you like it ? they need more space or will rapidly become unhealthy.
