Sorry i forgot to ask one more question. Is there a way to budgie proof a wall? Or do i not have to. I built my birds a perch high up in my room with a natural branch from my tree. Caboose is the only one who likes to climb up the branch and chew on the wall. He's not eating it. Just likes to make little holes I guess. He has plenty of chewing toys and cuttlebone. Just likes to chew on wall. Anything i should be concerned about?
Well, the paint or plaster of the wall could very well to be harmful to him, so I would find a way to stop him from chewing the wall. Perhaps pinning a large sheet of plastic (think the same type of plastic used in placemats for the table) to the wall where his perches are attached will help curb his enthusiasm for chewing the wall when he realises that he can't get his beak into the plastic
I babysit a parrot who loves chewing the wall so we tacked plastic like that in places where he tended to go for a wall chewing fix and he's stopped doing it
Those are great, the ones linked by JRS. Those you'd have to drill holes in and then nail them to the wall, since they're thicker. We used those around the bottom half of his cage (secured with zip ties) for a poop/seed guard.
These thinner, more flexible sheets are similar to what I was talking about (I think!) and you should be able to pin these to the wall with small nails or other pins.
Last night was a rough night for me and caboose. Caboose couldn't sleep and kept having night fights. He kept crashing into things trying to go back to his old room and cage. I felt bad for him. I wish I knew how to help him with the change.
We also had rough night when I separated Lulu from Maks and Zuca. We all stayed up all night since neither of them wanted to go back in any cage. Next day they came back to eat, and we reestablished our routine
Was Caboose out of cage with lights off? My birds panic even when light is dimmed if they are out of cage. If he was in and you covered the cage for sleep I wonder why he crashed into things. When covered my birds sleep no matter where cage is.
Yes I put him in the cage with a blanket. I had the tv light on and computer. So my room was pretty bright. He was crashing into things trying to escape and go back to his old cage and room with Tucker.
