@Deejo What is the difference between shipping flat rate vs Canada post? If we are in the US can we choose either one.
I am confused why that's happening.
At any rate - I believe you can select either but not positive.
We do, of course, refund any excess shipping!
Thank you.

Really - there is no difference, since we ship ALL of our orders via Canada Post.
This has never been an issue with our orders, and is only the second time we've heard this.
Not to worry - refunding postal overages is a quick fix, if applicable!

One of my birds' favorites is the Square Dance Novice. Here is SETI playing with his.

We also have a customized version with a puzzle piece and I am considering ordering a Low Key but I promised myself I would stick to a limited budget.

I tried checking flat rate & Canada post & checking out for 1 item & the system always changed it to $9.95 shipping.

When I checked out, the shipping rate I got was more than flat rate but less than Canada post. I selected flat rate to see what would happen but it adjusted by itself :shrug:

Yes, thank you. The cart does adjust the rates automatically. But I believe it has to have a "start point" - hence the $6.95

I just hope it is calculating correctly for you as I would want you to be able to cover your shipping costs.

No, your GCC can not get his head caught; the stainless steel ring is an ample size. A GCC & other small parrots, can climb around, go back and forth through the ring, etc.

I didn't want to wake Rio last night to measure him but I enlarged the photo til the ring measured 2 1/2 inches & compared it to his body. He just looks bigger than the ring. I just measured across his chest area & he's as wide or wider than 2 1/2 inches so I can't see him easily going back & forth through the ring. Most of the GCC I've seen were smaller than him but I know they vary in size.

Yes, because that's the accurate rate - based on order volume.

The 2 1/2" ring on the jingle gym. I like that a bird can hold onto it & hang from it. A thought crossed my mind though
would it be big enough for a bird the size of a GCC. I just was hoping its not of a size where he could get his head caught in the ring? It's too big for that isn't it? I am concerned & don't want to put anything in that could injure him.

They warn not to have rings big enough to put a head through but what about if the head can come out easily?
You are such a bad influence. You've convinced me I need one of those too.

I really love the ring with the bells & its 8 inches long but I think my chunky guy is too big for it. :sad4:

If Sherbie keeps up his eating habits, he won't fit it either! Lately he's been pigging out. :learntofly:
