Talking Quick tour of Tori’s cage...

Took this video for my own personal reference but thought I would share it. And yes I know that there are a lot of people who have had bad experiences with the “happy hut”. I inspect it daily for any damage and it is intentionally placed at the bottom of her cage so that it is not used as a sleeping spot but more as a tunnel toy.

I enjoyed the tour. Looks like it has good birdie feng shui.

Re: Quick tour of Tori’s cage...

Nice setup, lots of toys and places to climb, Tori must be a happy bird. I've never had any issues with those kinds of huts.

Re: Quick tour of Tori’s cage...

A well oufitted house for sure, Tori has plenty to keep her busy. As an aside, the huts also have a side effect thatt hens, inparticular are prone to hormone triggers by dark, close quarters like those foundon huts, empty boxes and even under beds/sofas and some in open drawers. I've never had a female parrot so this is only what i"ve read, but seems the cons outweigh the pros on them.

Hut notwithstanding, she must have a busy day playing with all of those toys! Lucky lil birdy.

I should have thought of this a LONG time ago!

Re: Quick tour of Tori’s cage...

Those little cat toys (the plastic balls with bell-like things inside of them) are my GCC’s FAVORITE toys. I have them hanging by string and ropes all over the place. My GCC will grab onto the string and shake the heck out of it to make the ball produce its sounds. Sometimes my GCC likes to pick fights with those balls, grab them with her beak and fling them then she will get all offended when the ball comes back to her. Her feathers up like a blow fish, she lets that ball have it again. The ones I don’t have hanging by ropes and strings, she will play with even on her back. She LOVES those things. And they are cheap toys...

Yeah, she goes into a bit of a frenzy with them too...I keep 4 of them in one of the stainless steel cups on top of her cage and we play the “I’ll toss them out, you put them back in” game frequently!

I was just now able to view the video. Your conure looks exactly like mine. I’ve been calling her a cinnamon green cheek conure but perhaps she is really a pineapple, like yours. Kudos on the cage! A reflection of the parront’s love!

I want to get a larger cage for my girl. In fact, I would love to make her a cage myself, out of wooden dowels. Out of all of the toys I have bought her, only the cat toys were successful in capturing her attention. However, I made her a 6 foot tall tower with a spiraling stair case, out of wooden dowels, which I augmented with 3/8 inch nylon rope. My girl LOVES the rope. Sure, she could climb the spiraling staircase one step at a time, and go down the same way: that’s what she does when she is in a hurry. But what she LOVES to do is climb up and down the ropes, and perch upon rope that is horizontal. I think it makes her feel more “birdly.” We call it her tree. I would imagine you could accomplish the same thing with ropes if you ever felt like attempting to outdo yourself in the effort to spoil your bird.

The easiest way to tell the difference between a cinnamon and a pineapple is the amount of yellow on the body and especially under the wing area. Check out the pictures on this website...it has some great examples of the different mutations.

Green-cheeked Conures ? Avian Resources

Also, as far as toys go, have you tried anything with the shredded krinkled up paper? Tori LOVES that stuff!
