Tia finally gets her feet off her cage
« on: November 12, 2014, 01:23:41 PM »

I finally tempted Tia off her cage and up onto her boing using unashamed bribery. 

Her three attempts at flying to date were akin to throwing an oven ready chicken three feet downwards and partly across a room.  :bounce:

What are night frights? They don't sound very nice!
Do you just put the boings next to their cage if they cant fly?

Its when something scares them in the night and they flap around the cage which can cause feather damage, when my bird had one she shed all of her flight feathers in one go and was unable to fly for about 7 weeks until they all grew back.

it's horrible Rachel, I think Yvie had been fast asleep and my daughter was still up late, I think she'd made a noise that startled Yvie & she'd just flapped around. They go absolutely crazy.

It wasn't until I got her up that I noticed the huge amount of feathers, flight and tail everywhere :(
