Tidy Seed

After getting my Bird Talk magazine, I've been seeing lots of interesting ads. Have you guys heard of this?
"Tidy Seed"
I guess it is this dish box thing you attach to the cage and therefore there is no mess for small birds.

I am wondering if it works like they say it does.

Would you say it is really worth the $20?

I think the price is high, no doubt, but it does work well. So I guess it depends on how much its worth to you not to have to sweep up seed quite as often! LOL

Did you have any difficulty getting the bird to start using it?

My birds would find a way to make it messy.

No, they figured it out quickly and were using it on the very first day.

I have one and love it. Both of my birds have used it so I'm going to get another one. I wanted to make sure that they would use it before getting another. You can attach it to the outside or inside of the cage. You can find it cheaper at MySafeBirdStore.com. It's the exact same thing. And they have the best customer service and super fast shipping.

I am using pellets for most of my birds. My budgies are sort of on pellets, sort of not. I give them both, they are the ones making most of the mess. Pellets aren't as messy, thankfully.

I have one, the best thing since sliced bread. Really works well to contain the mess and the bird had no trouble hopping right in and eating!

I have two of them, and use them for each of my Pacific Parrotlets. They are FABULOUS! They really do contain the mess!
