I was wondering if anybody has used mesh tents or mosquito netting to set up a play area for their cockatiel. I was hoping to be able to put my cockatiel in the mesh tent for hours during the day or maybe even let him play outside in it with my supervision. Has anybody tried these materials? Will it work or will he tear through it?

A cockatiel could chew through the mesh in seconds if he chose to, so I wouldn't rely on it. There are other hazards too. I volunteer with a wildlife rehabber, and last week a cactus wren that was in a mesh container got his foot tangled up in thread after his claw got snagged in the mesh. It took us about 10 minutes to get it off his foot, but at least there was no harm done. If it had wrapped around his neck it could have strangled him. They moved him to a glass tank after that.
