    Tail feathers looking a little scraggy

    Hi all Rio is coming on a treat and becoming a really nice social bird . When we got him he was looking a little disheveled in the feather department and I think this was just down to stress and the fact he was only young . In the 3-4 weeks we have had him he’s looking a little better but today...

    To be honest I don’t really like them , they are what came with the cage so will get rid ! Got a few goodies coming for him soon .

    Decided to make a perch for the counter top opposite his cage for when he eventually has the courage to come out . I have some artificial grass that I was going to line the bottom with but not sure if this is safe .

    So it’s been 24 hours since bringing Rio (not sure if this will be his name yet ) home and after a day of settling in I’ve just made him some fresh veggies and it seems he really likes green peas , I slowly approached his cage on my knees and offered it through the bars and after a short...

    The pads are below the grill so I don’t think he can get to them anyway

    Another question is what is best to place in the pull out tray for cleaning. Can you use puppy training pads?

    This is where he is at the min . When he’s a little more settled I plan on putting him in a larger cage . I also have a floor standing wooden perch which I’ve made with toys and food bowls on . This can be moved around the house but ideally when we are sat in at night he will be free to come out .
