Hey everyone, I’m planning for a baby female cockatiel in a few months (waiting for a specific mutation from a specific breeder) and am figuring out a sleep cage for her, and knowing that tiels often have night frights I was wondering what your opinion is on the best cage to minimize injury. Do cage bars increase injury, or minimize it, in your opinion? Would an acrylic cage be better with no place for feathers to get caught in? Any other features you think it should or should not have for safety?

Thanks for the insight!

Hello there and welcome to the forum! :)

Some cockatiels are prone to night frights and some never have them. It doesn't matter what type of cage you have them in, if it's bad enough they will hurt themselves regardless.

For my birds that are prone to night frights I have a night light close to their cage and it seems to have worked, they haven't had a night fright in months. Their cage gets partly covered at night, too.
