Today we explored outside of the cage for the first time. She happily hops onto our fingers and enjoyed exploring both the kids and the floor. Even tried the broccoli!!
Sometimes when she hops on our hands she starts nibbling on us. She keeps taking little nibbles all over. Sometimes it pinches a bit.
I have read that nibbling is good. And biting is bad. How do you tell the difference?
New cage arrived.
Wiped it down and assembled it.
And the big move is at last complete.
i left in only one of the wood dowels that came with the cage.
And i did not put the grate in the bottom.
How does it look?
Anything look obviously wrong?
It might be helpful for Melody if you had a longer ladder, being that her wings are clipped, can she easily get to the food and water where they currently are placed without falling? It might also be helpful for her if there was a perch running between the food and water at the lower part of the cage.
Ok that’s helpful, thank you. Maybe if I move the wood dowel one since it runs the entire width...
She’s sleeping on it right now...
I’ll go and see if our local pet store has a bigger ladder. Hopefully, she’ll be able to get around...
Ok. Added an extra ladder (couldn’t find a bigger one) and the extra dowel perch running down by the food dishes. I’ll try to find some more natural perches to replace the dowels, I know they’re not great...
