The cage my budgie lives in has these two extra doors that slide up and then back down to hold a food and a water bowl in place and my budgie skittles has figured out that she can lift it up to get out. I've had her for a bit over a week and she is untamed and luckily I caught her trying before she got out but I need help finding a solution for this. I can't afford another cage at the moment, and right now I have it held closed with a couple of paperclips. Is that ok or is there something else I can use?
Thank you! I did switch to plastic "crab/ butterfly" hairclip thingies so it would be safer and I'll look for those when I go to the store today. I panicked a little when I saw her lifting the door not only because I would have no idea of how to get her back into her house but I have a dog, he's pretty old but sometimes he surprises us. I didn't think she'd figure it out this quickly, she usually sits in the back corner and freaks out when I open the door to put her cuttlebone back up (she knocks it down a lot) but I guess she explores a lot when I'm not home .
