The other day, as I was making dinner – warming chicken soup – I put the pot on the gas stove, set the flame low so the soup wouldn’t boil away and went back onto the computer. I figured the soup would be warm enough to eat in about fifteen minutes. About five minutes later, my male cockatiel, Casey, began peeping like he does when someone comes passed the window, but it was early evening and the curtains were already closed. He continued peeping and I finally thought I should check to see if the soup was ready, but didn’t smell the soup at all. When entering the kitchen, having to pass Casey’s cage, I saw that the flame had gone out under the soup and the pot was only a little warm. I didn’t smell soup, nor did I smell gas. He is my hero. I know that animals are instinctual, but this truly amazed me.

Hi I have an idea for bird toys in cages. I attached a "snap -swivel" like the ones used in fishing. I attach the snap part to the top of the cage and other part to toy. This allows the toy to spin freely 360 degrees plus its fun to watch my bird spin around in a circle and not stop half way through. Here's the link to Bass-Pro so you know what I mean: LINK
