Pebbles...

Recommended Posts

Pebbles beak has turned from full brown to full blue so i am pretty convinced its a guy but i am still gonna call it a she :)

 

so lately she became very smart.. or maybe she always has been anyways she opens up the doors for the water bobs her head out the puts her head back in and the door goes down is there anything i can put on the doors to prevent her from doing that shes in my room so she wont get very far but my brother nearly strangled it last time she got out. I have been using pegs but not sure there strong enough one of my previous budgies were out side with the big black cage and he lifted up the door and flew away.

 

Every night and morning i let her out for about 20 minutes in my room to get her flight time apart from Tuesday nights when i have netball.

 

do i have to give her more flight time or is she just teasing me opening and closing the doors??

the pegs should work fine - the clip ones. Get stronger ones if need be.

With the pegs, you've just got to make sure you put them on right. I used to use pegs, and if you do it one way, you can still slide the doors up. Just have a fiddle, and if you can't lift the door with the peg on, it's unlikely your budgie can. You can also use those twist ties you get on food etc... Or if it's a door you don't use, cable ties. You can also get those binder clips (black with silver handles) Binder Clips Much stronger than pegs, but I've never used them on a cage so I'm not sure if you can get them to stay on properly. Good luck and let us know how you go... I also don't think Pebbles needs more out of cage time as it sounds like you're doing what you can already. As long as her cage is plenty big enough, she has plenty of toys, you change her cage around regulary (to keep her busy) and maybe give her more time out on the weekends (which you probably do anyway).

Thanks.

I have a ladder, a ring toy and 4 perches in the cage. I did have a mirror, but Kaz said that they mess with their heads, so I took it out. She has 2 water holders and 2 food holders(ones empty). I did have one of those honey sticks in her cage(trill one), but it was gone by the end of the day so I stopped giving them to her.
