Thanks its still holding up well, now that I have babies on the way I am going to divide the change in half. At the time I built it I didn't realize pigeons need more horizontal room then vertical. This way I get two cages in one.

Well if they fall to the bottom they have no way of getting back up since they don't really use their beaks like parrots do to help climb.

PostSubject: My cockitel Ester   Tue Dec 13, 2011 1:47 pm

They don't really you say? I think it's a lot less dangerous for a Pigeon to climb on bars then a cockitel. Depending on the cage design. I am very cautious of the bar system on my cages. I have had a issue with a cockitel . she was climbing the bars. And her beak she squawked and starting falling. I somehow got my hand in the cage before she hit the ground. well when she rested in my hand, she appeared not to be able to breath. I didn't know what to do. but withen 1 min or two, She had her last gasp. Like even today I wonder what happen. All she did was jump on the bars to come see me......
poor Ester . She was my first cockitel. got her when she was adult. she started rubbing her head on my neck. I looked right at my mom with biggest puppy face i said I love this bird sooooo much hahahha,. best moment i had with birds. Made me feel so ....idk I cant explain. Im sure we all remember when a cockitel first rubbed there head on our neck or hand eh ? were they do their bow and alll that?

Pigeons shouldn't really climb on bars, their feet weren't designed for that. They should be able to fly, hop or walk from perch to perch. Climbing or standing on bars for long periods of time causes bumblefoot, which is an extremely painful infection and needs surgery. It can be fatal.

PostSubject: training provides answers   Wed Dec 14, 2011 1:48 pm

I have a pretty big parrot cage, the pigeons dont stand on the bars. I did notice watching tha birds last night they do that thing they try to climb up, she only did it once tho, Ive actually trained them priory not to do that. all i did was put a toy into the cage above, were they use to do that a lot. By the time they stopped. I already removed the toy. and they dont jump and try to get to the top of the cage anymore Happy

Also making a perch , do they can have 20 min outside time is fine too, they need exersize. helps calm the bird when they go back into the cage
