Re: Pixel - silly boy

If he's mostly in one room I love the idea of curtains to go over open doors. Screens on doors/windows also great and can be closed while outside air coming in.

Re: Pixel - silly boy

I have the sleeves on my fid's arms shortened twice a year. Amy is allowed to get her long sleeves in winter,because she doesn't go outside,plus she was never fledged and does not know how to fly ( We are working on that now,with a harness to come in near future.)
BB has long sleeves. He was clipped when I got him from the breeder and I'm letting him learn to fly. Even though he can fly,he prefers to walk/run to me.
We (Amy,BB,and I live alone) NEVER have doors open! Anyone who visits ( "Uncle Joe" or "Uncle DJ") close the doors behind them immediately.

When I was "new" to the world of parrots,and Smokey (TAG) was with us,she was clipped also.
One beautiful summer day Smokes and Amy went outside. Smokey WAS clipped,but had just gone thru a moult and had two long sleeves on each arm.
I went to pick her up from being on the grass,but she had other ideas,and did a flapflapflap..and that bird got about two feet off the ground and FLEW from the back yard,across the road,and crash landed in a small shrub at the end of the neighbors driveway..with another neighbors CAT in fast pursuit!
( The feline had come out of the bushes in the other neighbors front yard and I didn't know it was there)
I screamed and scared the !@#*&() cat away and ran and rescued Smokes.
Clipped or not,she never went back outside unless she was in a carrier or cage.

You were lucky! We have a member (TexasWade) who lost Dusty,his wonderful cockatiel the same way you lost his. Dusty was in Wades bedroom,and Wade opened his front door for some reason,and Dusty just took off from the bedroom and out the front door,never to be seen again.

Amy my beautiful Blue Front. Who was four months old when she picked me to go home with to her "forever" home in 4/1990.. DNA'd MALE in 2015
Jonesy, a cute Goffin 'too
that had to be rehomed :-(

And a Grey 'teil, BB...a.k.a. The Beebs
that was 18 weeks old 5/20/2016,

Rest in peace,my precious Smokey..4/2015 at 28 years young

Re: Pixel - silly boy

With the flies, mozzies and my 2 indoor cats, doors HAVE to be closed. All windows and door are screened and heaven help the person who lets a gecko inside. Good luck changing the behavior patterns in the house. No more running off to join the circus for Pixel.
