I love my little birds and don't want to start any bad habits with them - i.e., bread. They have ... very annoying but I am trying to break this bad habit I have started!!! So can you help me, please?

I give my birds 'mini wheats' while I give myself 'frosted mini wheats' made by Kellogg's. I'll give em a 'frosted mini wheat' after scraping a majority of the sugar off, but thats only when I'm out of the regular kind. They seem to love the frosted ones a tad more, but hey birdie beggars cant be choosers, eh?
I hope 'mini wheats' are not bad for the birds, because thats usually their brunch. Emotion: stick out tongue

Hey, Molly, I did say I had my doubts about those covers... maybe you should learn to read.

But you said initially
" put one of those perch covers on one of the perches which has sand/grit glued to it."
you only mentioned you weren't sure how effective they were as an afterthought.(shrug)
Thank you, oldmolly, for both this, and the detailed description of contraindications for grit on perches posted in another recent ... any of my personal contacts who might inquire about it of me. Thanks again, Pam. ( if I may )

'course you can :0)
Glad you found my offerings helpful. I too keep finches and canaries.

What about that Avia sandpaper on the cage floor (not covering the whole cage) is that OK?

I have noticed that budgies have a smoother, almost 'skin-like' foot, compared to say finches. Less 'scaley'.

Their skin is 'skin-like' Damn!!! your brilliant!
