Nice to meet you and thanks for stopping by with your vote...I really appreciate it...Just pecked a V4U....Today my campaign will be "Cages for Cockatiels and where to Position them in your home"..A wide array of cages is available today, but some are to elaborate and ornate for cockatiels.Circular designs, for example, often look very attractive, but actually allow the bird very little flying space.Choose the largest possible cage, because cockatiels are often more active than other parrots,preferring to fly, rather than climb around their quarters.Even is you let your pet fly around the room, it will remain fitter if housed in a large cage.Rectangular cages are a better choice and you should be able to find a modular system without too much difficulty, now that increasing numbers of pet shop are stocking them. The flexibility of this system has great advantages; no longer do you have to buy a cage of a specific size;instead, you can obtain component parts that clip together so that you can design the enclosure yourself.It certainly depends on what is your choice...Next...Positioning the cage...The best position for the cockatiel cage is in a corner of a room close to a window,but never in direct sunlight.Here the bird will feel secure,knowing that it can only be approached from the front or from one side.Make sure that the cage is sufficiently high off the floor,at about eye-level if possible.This will make it easier for you to have contact with your pet and service is living quarters.Even traditional square parrot cages are quite heavy and need a secure base if it does not come with one.It may be possible to obtain a stand, but these are not always very robust.Larger cages may have casters on them which adds stability and ensures that the unit can be moved easily.The winter months if you are afraid of a draft where the cage is placed by a window you should move it to another secure place and purchase a light that can be used used over the cockatiels cage that will give it the proper lighting and also a bit of warmth will come from it....Hope you are having a nice Monday....Many birdie wing hugs to you.....Sam :o)
