when you first cover you should of been noticing that it may take a few minutes to several for them to settle then they sleep till just after dawn when they will move about even covered and snack of some of their food.

and no you cover..completely ...just leave as you have been i ...assume...a small table lamp on so some light gets thru the covering but not much. smile

and now she is getting some really good excercise if she is hanging upside down and flapping ...so thats great ...much better than shredding a wooden ladder... frown

Check out www.bitemebirdtoys.com for really good cheap bird toys. Everything is about $3.50 each. Bob and Tom love their toys and its a local company.

The Motor City Bird Show is April 28th in Madison Heights and Bite Me Bird Toys will be there.

unfortunately the TASC (The Avicultural Society of Chicagoland) show is the same day and I will be there helping http://www.midwestbirdexpo.com/ so will not get to the Motor City show but there is also the Rainbow Feathers Bird Show the week before, April 21, at Romulus High School and I think they will be there as well plus they usually come to the Ann Arbor Bird Expo the first Sun in August. Bird Talk magazine has a list of shows around the country and they are usually a great place to get lots of toys, a lot of local toy manufacturers go to shows and the prices are usually much better than stores or online

I laughed when I saw the name of that toy company tessboss! Good one. I like the stuff on there too. Might have to put in an order, I haven't bought any toys for a few weeks.

i viewed the toys and would warn of the tiny chain links getting toes or toenails caught in them and that millet holder with the spring is IMO a accident waiting to happen for sure... frown

I never really looked at the millet holder. I do not know anyone who feeds millet anymore. I have many of the toys and they are made well and neither of my birds have ever caught anything but a great case of fun.

It is just really nice to find good toys for such a good price. I like to get the boys something new every 2 months or so and things in the store and on other websites cost so much money and the shipping can be ridiculous.

I go to the local birds shows a couple of times a year and get Bite Me toys. They also gave me a cool BITE ME t shirt last year.

Thanks for the info on the local shows Cetan. Wish I could go on the 21st, but I am babysitting grandchildren that day. I am going to shoot for the Ann Arbor show in August too.

I went to the show yesterday 4/21 and Bite Me was there - got a bunch of small toys for the keets plus a few other toys for Princess and Adam. They will be at the Ann Arbor show. Another great vendor at most shows is LJO Leather - lots of toys much cheaper than in stores or online plus lots and lots of toy making parts. I think I managed to only spend about 50 on toys - this is for 6 birds plus $10 on raffle tickets but won about $35 worth of the food my conure eats and a $10 shirt for myself from Bella Embroidery, black with rhinestone "Got Parrot?" on the front
