I am looking for a hiding for a kind of house for my birds so they can play when I am not in home. They can rest inside, hide inside come in and go out. Something without steel. :wf pied:

Don't use something like this with cockatiels. They will see it as a nest and get hormonal, and they might start fighting for possession. If you have females they may start laying eggs.

Most parrots including cockatiels lay eggs in a hole in a tree, so an enclosed space looks like a nest area to them. There are some parrot species (like lovebirds) who use their nest as a sleeping place all year long, so an enclosed space might be good for them. But cockatiels only use tree holes for breeding, so when they have a space like this their brain says "start making babies". Bird species that don't lay eggs in tree holes don't usually hang out in enclosed spaces, so they don't really need one.
