When you are ready to bring your baby home it is very important that your cage is set up properly.
We recommend a variety of perches, both in size and texture to include wood as well as bendable rope perches throughout the cage. We also recommend at least one sand textured perch near the food bowls. Be sure to have multiple toys and smaller parrots/conures love to have a sleeping tent or sleeve. Your cage should be fun and busy.
It is extremely important that you have three (3) bowls arranged in the same area of the cage. Most cages have the bowls very spread out. It is extremely important that your baby is eating and drinking as soon as possible. The bowls in our weaning cages are all together in one area, and babies need to have a similar setup when they arrive at their new homes. You will have a fresh water bowl, a fresh food bowl and a bowl for pellets. The fresh food bowl is given once or twice a day and removed after 5-6 hours. The pellet bowl remains in the cage 24 hours a day.
Water should be changed once or twice a day.
