Hey everyone, its been a while.
Poor little charlie got his toe stuck in a door on his cage today, he was fine within a few minutes, scared the feathers off him though. I suspect the problem was that the door was sitting a little off kilter, resulting in a tiny slot just right for his little nail, easy fix that they can't move but just in case, anyone have any tips for protecting those little nooks and crannies that are just inevitable? their toys and perches all get checked to make sure they cant get anything stuck, its things like where the bars meet that I want to make sure they cant get stuck on. He was only in that spot on the door to pester his brother :001_rolleyes:
I think just do your best at observing his cage and study it to think of things that may prevent injuries before they happen. The door problem you are now aware of. Overall, a good safe cage where a bird cannot injure himself is necessary. The ring that is put on a budgies leg, can also lead to injuries if the entire cage is not bird safe. To learn more about this, either get answers from others on this site, as some here know quite a lot about budgies and their care. Also, good pet shops that have experienced help could answer your questions regarding cage safety, the birds toes and other things you want to learn of.
Itís difficult for anything to be 100% safe, but as Birdmanca stated, just examine thoroughly any cage, accessory or toy and then decide whether itís reasonably safe and can be used, to not use, use under supervision only or to adapt to make safer, e.g.
With regards to cage bars, if you have a design where the bars fan out (some dome tops) then these are similar danger spots where a foot can slide into the narrowest point and jam - placing a perch (or platform perch) over this area could possibly cover this convergence.
Just keep checking, the more adventurous the bird, the more mischief making mishaps they encounter too. :)
