Smile Avian Haven Hut?

It gets pretty chilly in Vancouver, even in the summer so was considering this No Nesting Avian Haven hut.

http://www.persnicketyparrot.com/No-...wn_p_2458.html

I did a little bit of research on it, and one person said their larger parrot chewed it up pretty quick. Neptune is not much of a chewer, but I'm still not sure about that.

Does anyone have one? Is it suitable for Lovebirds?

Thanks!

i don't have one of those, but Maxx loves his Happy Hut. I have one in his inside and outside cage.

Made of fleece, and keeps the bird very warm

Happy huts are always a hit.
Like Bobs post says above.

Just watch out for nesting behaviors in a lovie

I personally think the one you picked out is good, because it just has the perch in there. There isn't a flat bottom where he can get all nesty etc I use cozzzy huts for my birds and they go down a hit without any nesting behaviours EXCEPT for my lovies, who are always trying to get it on with each other, regardless of being daddy and his two sons, so brothers and all male

Just be very careful with those huts, I know of too many birds who have chewed through and gotten stuck and ended up either loosing limbs or their life, one bird chewed through it in the 10 minutes her owner went to the shops, they got back just in time to cut the threads from around their birds neck.

It is not something I personally will ever use because of the risks. Just remember to keep a close eye on it and remove it at the first sign of damage.

My lovies each have one of these and sleep in them every night.

Okay, thanks everyone for your help! I love your suggestions, but Neptune loves to regurgitate on soft things and it is a pain to clean up

Thanks for the info Amelia! I will definitely keep a look out for that.

I agree, a few of my birds love their huts too but just about three weeks ago, I almost lost my crimson belly from a hut. I am very diligent on checking for loose cords and such but it was something as simple as her nails needing a trim and she caught a loose thread on her hut. It wrapped around her neck and her left wing. The only thing that saved her was I had a perch going across the opening of the hut... she stood on that but was dehydrated and weak from being in shock. This happened over night and I found her that morning when I uncovered them. I immediately put her in a homemade incubator sort of deal to get her body temp back up because her left wing was held above her head for quite a few hours and syringe fed her pedialyte for hydration. After a couple days she came back to herself with no ill side affects. I am very lucky. Only shows how quickly things can happen. So inspect and inspect and inspect some more of all huts and toys for bird safety.

I also have the ones similar to what Judi said for my linnies, and they love them, despite every night playing musical huts to get the best ones... *sigh* but they really do love them!
