Default Finally out of the cage again...

Because of the high pollen levels lately I've been voluntarily housebound. Which means I've been leaving Kalani's cage door open while I'm around. This morning he decided to finally come out again and do a few laps. Despite my efforts to keep him away from the window (window stickers) he still tried to get out, luckily no harm was done and he just fell behind my bed. I've moved things around now, so it isn't possible for him to do this anymore. Once he found his cage top he was as happy as a pig in mud.

I put one of his grape vine perches up there to make it more comfortable to sit on, he keeps falling through the bars and I'm afraid he's going to hurt his little legs. I also made a little makeshift play gym out of a bendable ladder I made him. I hung a beaded lace toy and his disco ball from it to play with. He had a blast and even did a few more laps. When he got hungry he managed to get back inside by himself. I was worried he wouldn't be able to since he never had before.



His poor cere is so dry and flaky! Usually when it gets like this I add some coconut oil to his seed and it clears up. You can also see he is getting his third and final big boy spot. He is such a happy bird, even when finishing up his first moult!



Checking out the "play gym". He sure loves chewing the bark off of branches.



He climbed to the top, did a few laps and landed next to his disco ball on the outside edge of the cage. He chattered at it a few times and then climbed through the middle. Over all it was a very successful outing for him!

He's a very handsome bird! I like your little play gym, what kind of branches is that made of?

Sounds like he did a great job at learning to be a free bird

Did you make the little bendy ladder yourself?

What a sweet and gorgeous boy your Kalani is, and you are right he does beautiful throat spots! I'm glad he enjoyed his out of cage time.

Kalani looks as if he enjoyed his out-of-cage time tremendously!

He did wonderful learning to be a free bird. He actually just squeaked at me and came down to the door, maybe he wants out again?

I did make the bendy ladder myself. I used apple branches, pony beads and wire.

Thank you. Hopefully all these comments wont go to his head! I'm glad he enjoyed his time out of his cage too. I'm hoping it will be a regular thing now.

Kalani looks like he was having a blast. What a wonderful play area you created for him. You can add a food dish outside of his cage, too, so he can eat there instead of getting back inside.

I thought about putting some food out for him, but I was afraid he'd never go back in his cage if I did that. I think I will keep the food in the cage and only offer the odd treat when he is out. Incentive to return home is always good, I think.

I think he is aware of this fact. He is always primping.

The second pic is too sweet! I love how he's having a chew AND a taste of the wood!
