Well at least now, thanks to you, he has a chance. What was it you did differently that let you finally catch him?
Just a fluke miracle that I didn't even think would work! When I was digging something out of my storage closet yesterday, I found an old birdhouse that I never put out because the entrance hole was too big...big enough for a cockatiel, in fact.How did you finally get him?
It was sleeting and raining like crazy last night, with howling winds driving it hard in every direction. Everyone was drenched; I saw Chainsaw up in her tree and she was soaked, poor girl. Tiny 'Tiel looked very wet when he crawled into the birdhouse. He was so wet he couldn't even fly to it, he climbed down the tree.
The K kids both get daily baths (Kraz loves them, Kamara tolerates them). They're in their own Dusty Bird room separated entirely from the New World fid room. There are two air purifiers in the New World room, and three in the Dusty Bird room, as well as one in the hallway separating them, and both have ceramic heaters to keep them warm. Both rooms are dusted and spritzed down twice a day. Papers usually three.Luv Bug adores showering (and gets quite demanding if hubby takes too long to get in) and while Puffin isn't thrilled about being misted, she can be coaxed into thoroughly enjoying it with enough kisses and encouragement. The bathing cuts down on so much dust! We have a ceramic blow dryer for them and ceramic space heater if they have to go in their cages before they've finished drying. Puffin gets well-misted about 3 times a week, Luv Bug thoroughly soaks herself at least 5 days out of the week.
Also, we have 2 air filters for what is pretty much one long room: a table top filter in the dining room between Buzzard and the green cheeks and a large tower (rated for a much larger space) next to the girls' cage in the living room. The rooms connect and it is far from ideal, but we can really tell the difference with the filters and I can't say enough abut baths, baths, baths! We would probably still have the air filters for our own benefit. My step-daughter has allergies, but with the filters our birds and dogs don't bother her.
But mostly baths.Did I mention baths?
What is your solution with Kraz and Kamara currently?
