Possibly a stupid question...

...although I know you guys are too nice to laugh at me
Anyway, do you need to bother putting toys in a sleep cage? The cage will be used ONLY for sleep so my baby will know that it's bed time when he goes in there (he'll have an aviary to play in during the day when I'm not home or can't be entertaining him, and his play gym inside as well, and me of course ), so is it okay for the cage not to have any toys in it? I'm assuming there should be a couple of perches so he can choose which is more comfortable to sleep on...

Laugh at you ................................... NEVER

Yipe place a perch or two in the cage, let him choose, perhaps he will use both.

I did not want Mishka to think it's playtime in her night cage, so no toys.

I have placed a small chain hanging in Mishka's night cage. Sometimes during the night, he basically sucks it, like a baby sucks a dummy. After eating he does exactly the same with the chain. When he "sucks" the chain I know he is happy and content

Re: Possibly a stupid question...

I have one perch in Fred's sleep cage...no toys. I always have pellets and water, in case he gets the munchies during the night! LOL!

Re: Possibly a stupid question...

No...you can't have Fred!

It's funny that you say that though. My sister and I were talking about him last night, and she referred to the price I paid for him as the best money I've ever spent!( Birds are expensive here) If someone were to offer me a huge amount of money, I'd have to say No....

If the time ever comes when I can't care for him due to age or illness, I'll be using my bird forum friends to find him a lovely owner...

Re: Possibly a stupid question...

Yeah, birds can be pretty expensive, but if you think about it in comparison to life span and how rewarding they are (I mean, if a dog could live for 50+ years I wouldn't mind paying thousands of dollars for one), they really are great value for money... Not that they are a commodity of course.

Re: Possibly a stupid question...

Ant, I'm still not used to you refering to Mishka as "he".

Forgot to mention Mishka only has one perch in his night cage.

Keeping the name Mishka, suits boy or girl


My little seems okay with that
