    @SandraK those cork perched look great. I'm seeing my other bro on Monday, so I'll see if he can help me place an order for one or two then.

    Also, I'm going to weigh him on Sunday with our gram scale. A little cardboard box should be okay, yes? I have some small ones that should fit on the scale.

    That, or a Tupperware style tall container. Keep the lid on there, but not shut. Mine just sit on the scale if given a snack for distraction.

    Geralt's a little flighty now that he's free, I'm not sure if he'd sit on it without being contained in something, unfortunately. I'll see what I have to work with.

    I've used a shoebox with lid for those squirmy little ones - otherwise I'll use the perch adapted to my scale.

    Whatever you weigh him in, just zero the scale with the container on it.

    @Garet, thought I would also just include a story about a CAG belonging to a family member of mine. She had BOTH her feet bitten off in the nest. So granted, she was like that from very young, but the way she climbs around her cage is just incredible. Instead of perches she has planks covered in soft towels, and a big pillow at the bottom of the cage to cushion her in the very unlikely event that she should fall. She doesn't even know that she's a little bit different :xflove:

    Most of my handicapped fids don't know that they're handicapped - they didn't get the memo as they say here.

    Poor baby. ;;
    Has she ever had issues with falling in her sleep?

    I've noticed that with Geralt, too. As soon as the cone came off, he took off.

    Anyways, Geralt's put on 3 grams, and Hawke has been seen by a vet. Other than being absolutely petrified of humans and showing signs of abuse, he's got 0 issues.

    And I brought him back and tried introducing them and they're acting like they've known eachother their whole lives. Hawke's even buddied up to Geralt to help him perch and nap on his favourite napping perch.

    Easy peasy. :p I'll try to take more pics later, I just want Hawke to settle in. He's real shy and tends to freak out if anyone gets too close, and I don't want him hurting himself.

    I've let them out since I took these, and they're hiding on the ceiling fan.

    Thanks :p I'm really lucky with my birds. Most of them aren't cage aggressive. The only cage I have to keep closed when they're out and about is Yen's.

    xD My friend wants me to call them Dorian and Bull now. After our favorite video game couple.

    It kinda fits. Dorian's a pretty boy and Bull wears a leg brace.

    .... Huh. I woke up and uncovered them today and the rest of the bone that was sticking out is gone. No blood, just.... gone.

    :depressed: Which means it's probably in his cage. Uuuuuugh.

    He won't let me get a good look at It, but it seems alright. No signs of infection, pain or chewing.
