Best Sleeping Accessory?

As Kiki loves to snuggle, I'm going to be buying her some kind of hut. Which kind is the best would you say? Snuggle Sack? Snuggle Hut? Lol.
Also, what kind of harness/flight suit is best? So I'd be able to put it on Kiki and take her outside or whatever?

Aviator harnesses are meant to be good, I have the feather tether harness and it works just fine.

I don't have any of the sleeping huts but I love the little tent ones

Will Kiki try to nest since she's a girl, or does that not really happen to sun conures?

I only have two birds who actually sleep in sleep tents, and they both prefer tubes, istead of the triangular huts, but that doesn't mean your bird will. My conure does not sleep in either type. She runs on top of them and through them in order to get where she wants to go, and she does sometimes lay on top of the tent upside down with her head hanging down. If she has one or can convert something into one, she sleeps with some toy draping over her back.


Thanks Shivani for the awesome siggy!

I got Maxx a Happy Hut from Petsmart. It is made out of soft fleece type material. He loves it. He goes in it a few times a day to take a nap, and at 8p climb in it to sleep for the night. Here is what his looks like.

cricket has that one too and he loves it. Conures back up to poop so it's good that it is open on both ends. Stays clean that way. ALWAYS watch for loose threads, i have heard some horror stories about the tents. I use them but i monitor them pretty carefully too.

It really depends on the bird. With hens, be aware of nesty behavior so you may prevent egg laying. My birds really enjoy hanging fleece snugglies and fleece swings. I've just started using these huts - they're fantastic!!!

I bought a "Snuggle Sack" from Persnickety. Kiki has always been one to snuggle up in things to sleep; she always finds a way to in her cage. I thought she'd really enjoy this. She's nervous about it, but I bet you money she'll be in there in no time. I've been slowly introducing it to her and she's interested in it. Only a matter of time!
