20211129_132943.jpg I'm sorry buddy I need a nap and I don't wanna accidentally roll on you while I sleep :cry: (I promise he doesn't spend too much time in a cage, just while I nap, go out or need to clean)

Better to be safely in the cage for a bit then to risk something terrible to happen while your asleep. It's OK if he has to be in his cage sometimes it's not a bad thing as long he gets to be out an appropriate amount of time :).

yeah he spends usually about 5-6 hours out of his cage each day, sometimes much longer :p it just depends

oh yeah I forgot to say but for some reason, ever since I got minky almost 5 months ago, he's been a very sneezy bird. he's always sneezed (no discharge just a couple sneezes every so often), could it be allergies or from dust? I dont think he is sick because he would've died long ago when he was a small fluff ball. I do have bird antibiotics though just in case (bought for my dogs as its cheaper than going to the vet and works for them as well). he could be mimicking because I often get sinus infections and have really bad allergies sometimes but I don't know haha ;;

My birds all sneeze and cough just like me, and cough like my husband.
