Someone collected their maroon-belly from me earlier this afternoon and they have bought 2 of these tents, (they're also coming back for a blue throatd ). Apparently they are rather scarce at the moment but they found theirs on e-bay. The Northern Parrots site www.24Parrot.com usually has them but seems as though they are out of stock.
Most conure species will do this & I know that some of my baby greys/timnehs occasionally do it too. I always warn people that if they find their conure baby upside down on the cage floor NOT to go into a panic as normally all is well!!
Glad to be of help - we feel EVERYTHING build outside must be double wired. I have watched a cat climb a single wired aviary (not ours thankfully!) and grab a cockatiel with it's claws!! Scully - don't put a clear perspex or corrugated roof on your aviary. Far better covered with wired wood or something similar. Sun through clear roofs can kill. By the way we bred kakies for may years and we had one pair that had eleven eggs, hatched them all and reared them = bless them! lovely little birds.
Is that the kakariki's permanent aviary in the photo? Only wondered as I see it's not double wired At risk of being told to mind my own business I would definately wire the outside as well!!! sparrowhawks will take the legs off a kakie no problem! also cats are a danger running up the wire - I wouldn't have a single wired aviary for the birds' sake
Nothing wrong there whatsoever Dawn - Taome IS feeding his mate!!! you!! As pomegranate is his favourite you are really honoured as he is regurgitating his favourite food to offer his favourite partner.........
Ah bless him! love the pics. Make sure you don't spoil him though, otherwise they get very dominant and can become nippy!!! Try to keep him in a routine like you would a young child. We used to offer his food at teatime, his fresh fruit at breakfast etc. they soon get to know when it's time for out-of-cage as well!! Mue
They don't get uncovered here in the mornings until 0800 - the time I start feeding everyone. He was probably wondering why he was being woken up early ;D Hope all is well with Taome and that he will eat normally (including his fresh fruit/veg) today. He might even treat himself to a bath
