Anyone use these?

Looking into getting something like that for Charles eventually so he has something to snuggle into with his nakedness.

However are these as dangerous as snuggle huts/ cozy huts?
If so will find something else.

Anyone got one they can take pictures of set up?

I just use happy huts, as long as they're maintained they're fine (and big enough for the bird). No different than using rope perches, however I am stopping using them for most of my birds because they last 2 minutes. Gunna get some natural branches and wrap them with vet wrap Is this like a lean-to sort of thing?

now if i ut a happy hut in with dusty he would destroy it but kiwi only sleeps in hers she does not play with or chew it i plan on getting one for my parakeet not sure if she will use it but thought i would try with happy huts it depends on the bird and you just need to keep an eye on it

I assume it's like a lean to, never seen one in use though.

I have one in my tiels cage... He sleeps next to it... It just ties to the side and the bird can cuddle up to it. No one else would touch it so he inherited

For that price you really can't go wrong as long as they are safe. I'm going to have to look into it!

Re: Anyone use these?

I cant remember what mine are called...might be the coseys(?!) cardboard based plushy long triangle hung up by 2 clips...

Anyway I had one tiel who would sleep on top of it for weeks before going inside (with some help the first time! Lol) but no other tiel showed interest.

Same with my linnies. Saw lots and lots of pictures of people with them snuggled up in various items and so got 2 when I still had everyone in a coloney. Took WEEKS for anyone to go in and then it was only the same few birds. Took them out when I split everyone into breeding groups but gave one back to the 'pet pair' and it was initially ignored but is now used EVERY night.

None of the birds I've offered it to have been big chewers. I don't think I'd risk my conures!
