wrapping cheap perches with vet tape?

I saw a bunch of cheap perches on ali-express going for like $2.00 or so. My biggest concern is the material it is made out of (the sellers class the material as "wood" without any further details..) so I was thinking, what if I were to wrap them in vet tape? It seems easy to replace it if they start chewing on them. thoughts?

Lack of vitamins

Hello there👋🏻 I have a 4 years old Indian ring neck and for the past 2 months I have discovered some changes in my parrot’s plumage . My vet told me that it’s a lack of vitamins , especially vitamin A . What food do u give to your parrots to increase the intake of vitamins? Thank you so much and I am waiting for your responses 🥰

What do your sleep cages look like? I’m trying to put one together for my bird and Im unsure if it should just include everything a normal cage does?

Should it also be as large as his normal cage? I just got a new one so I could technically use his old large one. But I also have a travel cage I could use? I’m not sure which I should go with

Can someone please give me some advice on how to do a diet conversion for a 30 something year old Moluccan Cockatoo? He’s a rescue that has been on seed his whole life, and he WILL starve himself if he doesn’t get what he wants

I need help with designing a birdroom/aviary for my cockatiel.

Due to various circumstances I've considered renovating an old fenced area for my dogs and make it a room for my bird, but the problem is that I'm not sure if I should make it closed up or keep the area open for air to come in and out. In that case I'd need to make sure to use a safe fan for the open area since it gets quite chilly outside. I was thinking that a misting fan could work and help keep the area fresh and ventilated but safety comes first.

Maybe I'll include more details in the comment section since I am unable to insert any imagery of the current design I have planned for the aviary because I'm posting this through the mobile version of the site.

Also, I'm not sure if this is the appropiate place to post this so let me know if its content is not up to standard for the sub.

Is she hissing at me?

What it says on the tin. Why does she do this? She seemingly does it at random times- for random intervals.

My lovebird's weird behaviour

So my bird keeps chirping really loud at 7 am. I mean its pretty normal for a bird to chirp really loud but he chirps on purpose. I am usually sleeping around that time so I wake up to his sounds. When I check on him he comes to me and stops chirping. Its like he is trying to wake me up. I dont know how to stop this, he wasnt this loud before we got him another female budgie. That female budgie was chirping loud all day and she was very aggressive towards the male bird. We gave her to someone. So yeah maybe he learned this behaviour from her? He was fine before we got her. What do you guys suggest to make him calm down or something?

This is how Sydney tells me he’s ready for bed

His “sleep hut” is a cage that’s made for small rodents but he loves cuddling up in the corner of it

First Words! "Thank you."

Baruch practiced all afternoon. Unusual choice, but I am happy that he is starting to speak.
