My younger brother just got a budgie last Monday and I've noticed he is very active because he likes to climb all around is cage to play with toys and he flies a lot in the house. As soon as I saw this, I started to compare my cockatiel and realized that my 'tiel barely gets exercise. He doesn't climb around in is cage a lot. All he does is only move to eat, to drink, or to play with toys. Otherwise he stays in the same place. I do have a playgym but I honestly don't think he gets enough exercise on it. Here's the playgym I own:http://reviews.petsmart.com/4830/275...ws/reviews.htm . I also have the Aviator Harness. I try to take my bird outside atleast once a week. The only time he really flies is is he is startled or if he is forced to(I do not like forcing him so I don't). He never really likes to fly on his own. I've also kind of been feeding him a lot of millet this week because we have a new bird and to train him. I don't want my bird to be overweight and I want to give him as much exercise as much as possible to remain and be healthy. If you know any methods or suggestions that would be great, thanks.
