DUCKIE, OF COURSE I will help you!!!!!
What a silly thing to even doubt lol...
When you visit, you will see how I setup my cage for them, however in the mean time here is what I try to do:
- I place 2 large bowls on the cage floor (I am giving you the exact ones I use. They are ceramic flower pot trays). They hold enough seed for 2 days, however I just put a little and switch them every morning.
- As for water, I have bowls to place on the cage floor aswell (big enough to walk/spash in) and I also put 1 cup on the cage bars near the top, so they have easy access to drinking water.
- I place a variety of perches in the cage at different levels. I am giving you rope perches, cement perches, dowel perches, and natural branches. I place them with enough room to go under, above, and around eachother without their tails hitting them. I have 4 perches in the cage right now (cage is 34"x21"x36"). I have a rope perch, 2 branches, and 1 dowel.
- I also give them a large rope swing. They LOVE THIS! It takes up a fair peice of the cage they are in now, but it is so worth it. Maya is currently sleeping in it, and Memphis is sitting on the top preening. That toy is basically a must for them lol, and they love it to bits! They dont really like any other swings I have given them, I am not sure why.
- As for other toys, they like leather strapped, plastic beaded, chewy rope toys the best. Neither like mirrors that much, or bells/rattles. They much prefer to shred and 'preen' toys, with ropes, leather, and other material that they can chew, play with, pick apart, nibble, and break... lol go figure
I give them anywhere from 5 bigger toys that keep them both occupied, to up to 15 smaller ones that they enjoy seperately. I swap toys around every so often, about every week or two, and place them in reach of perches. The bigger one sI hang from the roof though, which gives them access to play with the toy from all angles
- I give them a cuttlebone all the time, and they love to chew it. They also get a iodine block (which they just finished, so you will need a new one
- Other than that, that is basically all they need.
You have seen pictures of my setup on my website, have you not? That can show examples of what I am talking about in my description above
If not, I will take new pictures for you very soon, possibly tomorrow night (after riding), and will try to post them so you can get a better idea
They are really easy birds to please Duckie, so don't worry at all. Within a week, you will see what they like and don't like, and learn to understand eachother more. They are pretty socialized birds and adapt well to new things fast, so you guys will learn a lot from eachother! I can't wait to see you guys with eachother, I know you will do great! lol
