I got two Lovebirds.

What kind of of Christmas Tree & decorations can I put up?

No tiny lites I’m thinking.

And for house, no amaryllis, holly or poinsettias.

 

Maybe spider plants with safe red twine & no unattended birds out of cage ever.

 

I hope you post to the web for others.

 

The season is almost here.

Hi Sue

 

The harsh reality is, there are no bird-safe Christmas decorations.

(Formally) Live Christmas trees have a sap that birds can get stuck on.

 

Tinsel can cut up a bird’s crop.

 

Christmas lights running at 12 V may still zap a bird’s tongue and beak.

 

The solution is to take prophylactic measures like “no unattended birds out of cage ever” while decoration are out.

Birds have no sense of holidays. 

 

 

“It’s just another time for them to test everything around wreaking havoc wherever they can.”

 

So if you are going to decorate, it’s best to not let the two hooligans wander into your Christmas Wonderland.

 

Enjoy the holidays and let your birds out when everything is packed up and put away.

 

This will be posted in the post-Thanksgiving Berdie brunch on December 1, 2019.

Happy holidays.
