11 Replies and 1728 Views Coop Cups AKA Poop Cups  1728  11 Started by  Victoria Whitfield Why is it that the tiels that are SH with me at the moment have taken to perching on their water/food cups and pooping in them constantly!! They are in a lovely montana cage with the swing out doors with the cup holders and I just can't use them.&160; I trawled the net looking for covered coop cups of some description as I'm at work all day and can't stand the thought of several hours of them with dirty food and water. I've put their food in a cheap and nasty plastic cup with those wire hooks...

2 Replies and 1184 Views Anyone Want This? FREE!  1184  2 Started by  Doddie Kent I collected a couple of cages the other day. One is lovely. The other one... measures 29.5 x 16.5 x 16 inches, plus legs which are 21' high. It is rusty, it's a Ferplast cage, the base is brown plastic and in reasonable condition. It also has a brand-new-still-in-wrapping base and tray. The cage will only rust up again if cleaned off, so I don't think it's worth the trouble, BUT if anyone wants it, or especially the two bases with trays, please contact me fairly quickly, and come and pick it/the...

9 Replies and 1630 Views Electric Heaters  1630  9 Started by  SharonL We caravan all year and use a large porch awning to give us more space (and somewhere to dry wet doggies). Historically, we have always used a 2kw electric fan heater in there in the winter, so we are rather worried about having Norm with us now and the PTFE/teflon situation, although he is always in the 'van with us, sometimes the door is open so fumes can get in the 'van. My question is, is ther ANY sort of electric heater that anyone uses that is safe I am thinking halogen, oil filled, ...

However, working has taken over forum posting, so I've neglected my posts I'm afraid (had to re-register even to post, so I must be out of date!).

11 Replies and 1385 Views URGENT - BIRDLINE NEED HELP !!!!  1385  11 Started by  Deleted User Hey Guys, OK, we have a problem. The Birdline caravan that is used at shows for sleeping the show birds, has died a death. It is now unuseable and unless we get a replacement before next week, we will have to start cancelling shows. So, Birdline is after a 5 - 6 berth Caravan, suitable for housing show birds (in their carriers) and at least 1 person. We have found one near Norfolk, but there are problems. We are miles and miles away from Norfolk, and I can't get the time off work to...

1 Replies and 2625 Views Urgent - Home Wanted for Sunny Mynah    2625  1 Started by  Doddie Kent Sunny the Mynah Bird was born in July 1999. He is in wonderful condition, he talks, and is into everything, a very nosy bird. He loves being cuddled and kissed, sitting on a shoulder and playing with your hair. Loud music is a favourite, he eats all soft fruit, and wants to have a bath all the time. He's a lovely bird, but he's living in a room full of African Greys, which means he can't come out and fly as much as he'd like. He's fine with other birds, but needs to come out much more than he do...
