I have some questions. If anyone could answer them that would be great!

1. I've only been letting tweety get out and fly around in the bathroom but I want to know would it be safe for me to let her come out in the living room? And what should I do to get her use to it? (She's usually always in there) and if she will come out in there and just hang out should I look into buying her a play stand? Whenever she comes out in the bathroom she usually just hangs out on my shoulder

2. Has anyone ever used a "bird harness" beforebefore and should I buy one or no?

3. I want to start getting ready for winter time what can I do to make sure that she stays warm at night?

Thank you!

Thank you for your questions. I'll try to answer them as best I can.

1. I've only been letting tweety get out and fly around in the bathroom but I want to know would it be safe for me to let her come out in the living room? And what should I do to get her use to it? (She's usually always in there) and if she will come out in there and just hang out should I look into buying her a play stand?

PARAKEETS SHOULD NEVER BE ALLOWED TO FLY OUTSIDE THE CAGE UNTIL COMPLETELY HAND TRAINED. IF THAT HAS NOT OCCURRED, THEN START THERE FIRST. LISA SHEA HAS EXTENSIVE TRAINING DIRECTIONS ON THIS FORUM. FLYING OUTSIDE THE CAGE IS THE LAST STEP IN HER TRAINING PROGRAM AND SHE TELLS YOU HOW TO GET THE BIRD TO FEEL SAFE OUTSIDE THE CAGE.

ROOMS HAVE TO BE MADE SAFE FOR THE BIRD. THAT MEANS CLOSING BLINDS TO WINDOWS AND SLIDERS, COVERING MIRRORS (SO THEY DON'T FLY INTO THEM), MAKING SURE OVERHEAD FANS OR FLOOR FANS ARE NOT RUNNING, CLOSING DOORS TO OTHER ROOMS, CLOSING OFF EVERY PLACE WHERE A SMALL BIRD CAN GET CAUGHT AND HURT HIMSELF. KITCHENS ARE THE WORST PLACE TO LET A BIRD FLY AROUND. TOO DANGEROUS.

2. Has anyone ever used a "bird harness" beforebefore and should I buy one or no?

NO, NO, NO. BAD IDEA FOR ANY BIRD BUT ESPECIALLY A SMALL ONE LIKE A PARAKEET. IT WOULD TERRIFY HER. IF THE ROOM IS BIRD PROTECTED AND SMALL, THAT'S WHAT THE BIRD MAINLY NEEDS. PARAKEETS ARE NOT SAFE FLYING AROUND LARGE UNSECURED ROOMS. BUYING A LARGER FLIGHT CAGE OR LETTING HIM/HER FLY AROUND IN A BATHROOM, LIKE YOU'VE BEEN DOING, IS YOUR BEST BET.

3. I want to start getting ready for winter time what can I do to make sure that she stays warm at night?

KEEP HER AWAY FROM DRAFTY WINDOWS AND DOORS. DO YOU COVER HER WITH A SHEET AT NIGHT? IF NOT, START NOW. THAT MAKES THE BIRD SLEEP BETTER AND KEEPS HER WARM AT NIGHT. IF A BIRD IS FLUFFED UP A LOT AND SHE'S NOT TAKING A NAP, THAT MIGHT MEAN SHE'S COLD.

GOOD LUCK!
