Ziggy's Cage Makeover

I "redecorated" Ziggy's (Pacific Parrotlet) cage today. He is handicapped, missing half of his upper beak, so I try to provide lots of perches.

This is his most favorite platform perch. He has three platforms in his cage.








Wow, that ended up being way more pictures than I thought.

Oh no, the pictures came out so small. What did I do wrong? I clicked "host on Tapatalk" from my phone.

Hmmm. That didn't work either. This time I hosted them on the forum at 35K. Suggestions?

Ziggy is a little spoiled?

I think Bob would be jealous if I let him see.

Thank you. I love him so much. I made the little jolly ball toy years ago - so easy and inexpensive. I spent about $8-10 making it.
Here is Ziggy's little sleep cage. This is a little stainless steel cage I picked up and it was a bargain.

Why does he have a separate sleep and normal cage? It seems so tiny compared to the mansion he lives in

That's a great question! All of my birds sleep in sleep cages in the bird room at night. It's much quieter than our great room. They all have "play cages" in our great room where we spend most of our time, in addition to play trees, stands, and several other hanging play areas throughout the house. We try to give our birds lots of out of cage time during the daytime, and having several play areas allows us to do this. But when we're not home, or busy and can't supervise properly, their play cages are fun for them too. Plus, their play cages are next to huge, sunny windows, which we know makes them happy. The bird room only has one window, and is more secluded from the rest of the house. This is perfect for night time because they need their 12 hours of dark, quiet, uninterrupted sleep.

Did you know in the wild parrots never sleep (roost) where they eat, bathe, play, and socialize? Many aviculturists believe providing a separate sleep area for your parrot can be healthy thing.

Great job! I found the photos come out smaller when hosted on tapatalk - I always host them on the forum at original size and they come out attached as a thumbnail that people can open and see larger
