Re: GCC Destroying pellet bedding

That screen is called 'egg crate'. You can get it from Home Depot, I use it for seperators for my fish.

Re: GCC Destroying pellet bedding

YIPEE!
I found it at Home Depot in the lighting department.

It comes in white and a highly-reflective metallic silver.
I would not buy the metallic one because a bird will probably chew off and swallow that silver coating.

On the receipt Home Depot calls it, "EGG CRATE WHT LOUVER".
Price is $16.65 for one 2' x 4' sheet.

Awesome.

FWIW, here is the label with the SKU.

Re: GCC Destroying pellet bedding

My friends cocktail does this , with no problems ever. I myself use newspaper, and have a cage that doesn't let them get to the waste anyway. You can give old paperback books for shredding fun, I learned this from another member and my birds have fun with that. Conures live to untie knots too, I read this tried it and found it to be very true!! You can buy those shredder rolls and thread through cage bars, all my birds have fun with that. If you have a bored bird, or even a hormonal bird providing more activity helps. I read a great article on toy types, and why different types are important, having a noise maker toy, a shredding toy, a toy they can pick up and move with their feet, a puzzle type toy, and foraging type toy, having at least one of each helps. I float plastic bottle caps in shallow dishes and put a seed in them, they have to fish around and learn to manipulate the cap to get the seed, lots o fun. Anyway I would add that to your advice above. Find ways to stimulate the mind. Good luck!
