Question, how did you keep the end closed? Did you tape it? I'd like to know, if there's a bird safe way to do it.
There was packing tape on it when I first got/cut it, which I peeled off before I gave it to Taco. Then I just closed the end with the ol' classic flap fold, like this. :D

Ah! I forgot all about that! I used to do that all the time before I figured out our monster of a packing tape gun. Thanks!

That is the coolest box!!! I’ve never thought of making doors and windows in the boxes I give Burt. I used to make cubby houses for my kids out of huge boxes though and they loved them. Burt tends to kill them in minutes so I would probably spend more time playing with the box to make it cool than he would take destroying it. I’m gonna do it though the next time I give him a box, he loves going in them to hide for a second then explodes out if them with a big “RAH” and a cute eye pin. He does sooo love boxes even if he tends to get angry at them when he can’t land on the edge of them without them tipping.

Bwahahahaha! :laughing7: Very nice!

Hah! That's so cute!! I should do something like that for Chirp.
You should, but what will you name his? We have a local pet shop named "Fish & Chirps" but that's all I can think of. I'm sure there's more & that's just blocking me. :wacky:
