@  Lou : (26 January 2015 - 07:36 PM) three??? blimey she must get cold! i did this once for a baby bunny, came out the nest on its mums nipple and was outside in the cold and drizzle, ran it inside and used a hot water bottle and the little one survived! hope your tiel will be ok xx
@  DizzyBlue : (26 January 2015 - 07:30 PM) don't forget to wrap it in a towel so its a mild warmth not hot and place alongside the bird never put the bird on top its way too dangerous could over heat the little one if she/he isn't completely with it xx
@  Squabbie : (26 January 2015 - 07:28 PM) Thanks for your book LOL
@  Squabbie : (26 January 2015 - 07:28 PM) Good advice, I never even thought about using a hot water bottle because I was in a flap (partner has three. THREE!)
@  DizzyBlue : (26 January 2015 - 07:21 PM) feck i wrote a book!!!
@  DizzyBlue : (26 January 2015 - 07:21 PM) you can use a normal light bulb make sure the bird can't touch it though and if you also that the bird can move away from the bulb to a cooler area if desired. the other thing you can do is use a hot water bottle wrapped in a towel so just mild warm permiates through (don't over "cook" the bird) put the bird along side rather than on top. When reviving hedgehogs to a proper temperature I use a normal plastic bottle filled with hot water and wrapped in a towel along side them so they can gain heat and move away if desired. dim the lights (but not total darkness and keep sound levels to a minimum. If you have any childrens unflavoured electrolites pop some in water and leave along side where the bird can easily gain access if desired.
@  Squabbie : (26 January 2015 - 06:53 PM) One of my tiels had a bad encounter with a window. She seems to have recovered but I am a bit worried she has a concussion.
@  Scarlett : (26 January 2015 - 06:46 PM) No I haven`t, but a few have used heat lamps, what`s wrong?
@  Lou : (26 January 2015 - 06:44 PM) im really no expert but would rather use a heat lamp, heard stories of reptiels getting burned from those things
@  Squabbie : (26 January 2015 - 06:42 PM) Has anyone used reptile / vivarium heated floor pads to keep a sick parrot warm?
@  Scarlett : (26 January 2015 - 06:28 PM) True!
@  divegirl : (26 January 2015 - 06:28 PM) I'm shattered, spent the day de-cluttering my bedroom. Tidy house, tidy mind and all that. I feel like I'm nesting but with out the baby :laugh:
@  divegirl : (26 January 2015 - 06:27 PM) I think they may have a clash of egos as to who is the best hanger on-er up-side downer
@  Scarlett : (26 January 2015 - 06:11 PM) How to lose weight...parrot style! Tone your body with Dave and your mind with Harley! I reckon Harley would look good in lycra!

@  Lou : (26 January 2015 - 03:26 PM) Harley could do a yoga section, he's good at getting into different postures!
