    I use them at my windows don't get chewed as bad as my nets or curtains and you can pick them up cheaper than net curtains they come with a Velcro that you stick around window frame. bought a few to replace the other nets and make a temp door so I can leave the door open at times when I am in the room to keep an eye on them. having my birds in the living room with a direct access to out side has its concerns after Peter flew out when I did not notice him.

    I may try them, as the vet said if Chorley was climbing on Lou's cage pulling himself up with his beak it would have been easy so bite his mouth or tongue.

    I have just spent 10 minutes trying to get Chorley to open his mouth, has anyone tried yawning at a bird? it does not work the same for them as we do. Anyway he did eventually open it and I saw his little tongue from the left side, it looks swollen to me but could not see any damage, will have a go at the right later.

    Now I have to work out his breakfast, we are running a little late but no-one seems bothered, yet

    a trick I use is to use a clear strew that I have dipped in apple juice or orange juice then put it up to the beak and place in to allow to see inside and the bird may even use the tongue to taste the strew. I do this at times with my birds so they take it as a treat and when it comes to needing them to see inside it often works without a problem. I prefer the spoon strews if you can get them as they hold the juice in a way that the bird can get the taste of the drink.

    Thank you Michael, I tried it with orange juice and the beak opened in protest, heheh, he hates oranges but have no apple juice. He is not opening it fully so could only see his little black tongue in shade, but can not see any damage, but that does not mean much. He is still eating but carefully and slowly, everyone else finished ages ago, except Lou and Dusky who said they are not eating that junk, fresh fruit and couscous.

    I am now a lot calmer and he is brighter, so far, so good.
