Separate Cages for Night/Day?
Posted 25 April 2012 - 08:39 PM
1) I want him/her to sleep upstairs in the bedroom because monday night one of my cats knocked the cage over. They hadnt botherd the bird all day monday, but at 3 am my husband and I woke up to the dog barking like crazy, we went to check it out and the bird cage was on the floor. (it was originally on an end table). The bird appears to be okay but regardless, I would rather it not happen again.
2) I stay up late and dont want to keep him/her up since I have heard that not getting a good nights sleep can make them sick.
3) I don't want to just leave him/her upstairs all day because no one is up there. I got him with the intention of spending the day with me downstairs ( I work from home).
So.... would it be too stressfull to have his main cage downstairs with me and at night bring him upstairs to a smaller cage to spend the night?

Not very many people keep day/night cages for their small birds, it's more frequent with medium to large parrots, and still not an overly common thing.
In short though, I don't see any problems doing just that as long as your tiel doesn't mind. I have one tiel who *loves* to fly through the house, although I hate it when she does since we also have cats and both love to chase things... but only one is a "hunter". (he chases to play or kill, but not to eat). This tiel just loves to explore, and any chance she gets, she'll go zooming!

As for the cage getting knocked over, you can try that non slip cabinet liner stuff under the cage. This stuff http://www.amazon.co...35459347&sr=8-2
Or put this stuff under it. I've used this and it works well. Just don't put it where the bird can get to it! I'm sure it's 10 kinds of toxic! http://www.amazon.co...&sr=1-2-catcorr
