It seems to me that the PrevuePet Cockatiel Nest Box, like all the other nest boxes, has the opening for the bird located too high.

When the bird is inside it has to do a standing jump of about 5 inches to get out, in fact, I can’t quite imagine how the bird manages to get out.

Hello,

Disagreement with the wife.

 

After years of using a bottle for Eclectus and Ducorps (cockatoo), my wife has switched to a bowl.

Mitch: I read on line something you wrote about the possibility of training adult budgies.

 

I have inherited two budgies – about 1-year-old.

 

They are in a cage and have never been trained.

 

They seem very happy with each other.

 

They are very active and chatty.

He’s only out a couple of hours mostly in the early evening.
