Silly Birds!



After work, I came home to quite a surprise! In just the dim light of the xmas tree as I entered through the front door, I saw a pure white creature fluttering in the living room...It scared the daylights out of me...I turned on a light, and it was Emily, my white zebra finch flying around stretching her wings! I wondered how she got out since the cage was still intact as I left it this morning...I also noticed that Zoe was also missing from the cage, and to my fear, I hoped none of my cats got to her, so I frantically looked all over for her, and then I heard a little "peep" coming from my Christmas tree...and low and behold Zoe was hanging out in my Christmas tree! Silly birdie! It took me nearly a half an hour catching both of them, but they are safe and sound in their cage...I honestly think they figured out how to open one of their seed doors to get out cause the cats didn't even touch them! so I secured the doors with string...

Lauren:You need to secure it with wire. Their beaks will cut through the string; I laughed and laughed thinking about your birds hanging out in the trees.

yes..wire. The birds have a guardian angel. Keep the door closed to their room.

Hey, Pood: Also, if they can get their heads through the wire on their cage, they can get their whole body through. I had mine in a cockatiel cage for a while but mine could squeeze through, so had to put them in a cage with smaller wire spaces.

Praise God the cats didn't get them!

Poodie; Heed the words of these elder womenfolk. lol. You don't want to come home and find a pile of feathers.

That birdie knows a thing or two --of course she would head for the tree!!!!!

I'm glad they are safe.

My birds were rescued birds from someone who mistreated them, so the do NOT like humans... it would take me HOURS to get them back in their cage, and with thick gloves, too... they bite really hard! (they are cockateils)
I'm so glad that your birds are safe and sound... :)
