If you can fit the container they are now in into the cage then you may find that helpful when the time comes to actually start caging them.
Burt was a little overwhelmed with the huge cage all to himself, he had only really just graduated to a cage and was housed with a heap of babies who would all huddle together on the floor when their feet got tired. He really seemed to have found a feeling of security in the tub/box I put in for him, he also used it some nights when his little feet needed a rest while they were building up enough strength to always perch like a big bird does, I also put in a home made platform perch which he also would go to so he could lay down and rest his feet.
Many babies really like to be graduated with the security and comfort of being able to retreat to a tub/container and some also find it very helpful to have a platform available for them too.
Oh yes, I’m so glad you said that cus it mirrored my concerns. They are outgrowing their tank in the sense that it’s boring and they like to crawl to the top and just call for me. Although a week apart and hitting all milestones, Eva is just is a bit wobblier and much more needy.
They have a little container that I carry them in when they bathe so they feel comfortable with it and hop it in. I will provide that, i was thinking that would help. Perfect, thanks!! I really think they will need that. Also they are used to a wee wee pad when hanging out with us on our bed so I put a piece covering 70% so if they need a little help when they are on the floor, they have something they are familiar. They like it. I’ll switch to newspaper soon. They are on the bottom most of the time, as of now, they don’t quite understand what to do hahah so it’s better than their little feets going through. They spent 5 min today, and we will just keep on going!
I have 2 platform perches as I knew they would want to be close but tend to huddle and rush hard like babies in a clutch and I didn’t want one being pushed off. They are never aggressive to each other but they will circle and use their body to block the other one. All perches are low, and I clipped in a soft elephant (no loose threads). Everyday is more exposure.
