Cockatiel boost their immune systems

It’s natural and normal for the babies to grow up surrounded by their own droppings, and this appears to boost their immune systems. If need you can periodically replace the dirty litter with clean litter. Also, scrape some of the excess poop off the sides of the box. Keep it dry and no need to wash inside the nest box.
