I try to give them about 1 1/2 hours each in the evening... But thru the day I give them 10 or 15 minutes here And there as I am cleaning ... Or I stop by as I am passing and take them each out for a few moments for a scratch and a cuddle.. As well as a few moments each morning while I am getting their breakfast... Maybe 2 hours to 2 1/2 hours each a day

Duke is allowed out all day, because all he does is talk to the smaller guys. The linnies and Ike are allowed out every morning for playtime, before Duke gets his time out

pretty much all day. i open up his cage in morning when i wake up and he goes in and out of cage as he pleases all day until its sleep time. Even when i go out, i usually keep his cage open but he always likes staying inside on his own will when i am not home.

Since I work out of the home E. is caged during the day, but don't worry, his cage is very suitable and has plenty of chewies and toys. When I get home during the week, he is out of cage until late night. On weekends, the lil stinker is out all day sat & sun. He wouldnt have it any other way...

Daisy is out a majority of the day because I am home all day and can watch her. She
enjoys her time out and doesn't cause much trouble. I think she really enjoys the
freedom to come in and out of her cage as she pleases.

Out-of-cage time for your parrot each day

Since I have moved into my new home I have been able to hangout with the birds all day. The littles all come out together and the big birds have separate out of cage time

Usually 2 hours Monday through Friday, evenings, since I home school plus time during breaks in schooling, and to change kermits water dish, he is determined to keep it messy. LOL, But on weekends usually a minimum of 3 plus hours. Anything less than that then he would be very upset with me. LOL

Minimum of 5 hours but more if I'm home to give it. He goes stir crazy when he's left in his cage too long!
