I have two male buttons and three females, and I'm looking for ideas about aviary accessories for them, such as little 'houses' or something. I have a small cardboard box that I cut a door into, and one of my girls seems to have taken a liking to it; but I would like them to have something more sturdy. What does everyone recommend?
Aviary accessories for buttons?
You can buy coconut huts check the reptile and bird area at the pet stores or I use soda boxes cut to size mostly because they are cheap and you can recycle them when they get dirty. I also have a oatmeal tube that I took the bottom off they use as a tunnel and love to sleep behind it. I use fake plants so I can wash them when ever and I don't have to worry that the birds will get sick if they eat the wrong plant. I use a 8 inch cake pan for a sand bath that I just leave in the cage and clean every week and add more sand, they love to make a big mess with this. I also heard that they like to play with straw or grass plus will even eat some bluegrass cuttings. mine keep busy eating and mating and laying eggs but I would love to have an area with a upstairs for them to get up a bit higher to see around better ah well they act like they are happy. I just have one pair. be careful with them all in the same cage watch for fighting you may want to separate them into pairs. imo
