Subject:Creating Bird collars
Message:I would never be that creative. I'm one of these people who would be better off buying the collar from the vet if it comes down to this. I do however think that Mr. Bird will never have to use one. We keep him pretty busy most days I think. The birds let us know when it's time to get up, and he wanders to whomever he can get to first, or who's chewing on a carrot stick. He takes shower's in the shower and in his own little private bowl, he gets cuddled often, and he's allowed to wander on top of his cage. He's also learning to sit next to Kiwi on the play station., She's not necessarily too happy about that. As long as he minds his P's and Q's she tolerates him sitting next to her.

Dr. Lincoln said that he had found that most bird's started feather picking just out of bad habit, much like when we bite and chew our own fingernails. So I'm assuming he didn't think it was anything to do with husbandry issues.

Diana, are you finding the bird diapers a very sanitary measure for the bird?
Even though that might be healthy for us, is it healthy for them?
How often do you find it necessary to change the diaper?

Margaret, and or Anna and Boo is it better to "Potty Train, than to have our little wild tame creatures wear diapers?

I'm just very courious. I want what's going to be best for my fine feathered friends in my care, and at the same time keep myself, my family, and my house as clean as possible.

What are everyone's views about Bird Diapers? I'm all ears. I would like to know. Thanks. Linda
