For really handicapped (or old) birds we sometimes make hammocks for them to rest in. Basically like a human stretcher. Two long side poles with cloth that hangs in between.Hello. My almost 19 year old female peach-faced lovebird is having problems sleeping on her perch. When she turns her head around to put it in her shoulder (you know, the way birds sleep), her head slides off and eventually she is completely leaning forward. Her head is hanging below the perch! She starts to fall off the perch eventually but catches herself. The poor thing can't sleep. I just bought a bird hut and put it in there. I'm also trying to find a perch with a better grip to it. Any good websites for perches? Not finding suitable one in stores. Also thought I'd try a platform perch. Anyone else dealt with this before? And what did you try and what helped? Thank you. You all have been so helpful before.
If you want to cover it just use something you can wrap around it. Like fleece. No glue. That way you can change it every so often.I added the platform perch today. She was on it briefly eating a millet spray. I had added three other things but she was not happy about so many changes. Can't believe I forgot about that. lol. I'll add them over time. Question: Can I cover that platform perch with a material glued on? It's scratchy like. Maybe use felt? Is using a glue ok if it's dried? She didn't like the pink vet wrap I had used on a perch but she's never seen it before. The corner platform perch is wood that needs to be covered. Any ideas?
I'm thinking I'll use vet wrap on her one other perch that's slippery. But only put it in certain spots like someone suggested. Hopefully that helps her out with that one.If you want to cover it just use something you can wrap around it. Like fleece. No glue. That way you can change it every so often.
I’m so glad she’s using them already.
