I like to let my birds in the backyard on nice days so they can have "grass time" and eat bugs and all that since their current area is a big muddy mess with no grass. Well after our rescue dog got out and attacked them they are now scared to be in the yard. I put them in the yard yesterday and as soon as I closed the door they were at the gate wanting back into their area. They usually will sit out there for HOURS and forage. *sigh* Guess they get to stay in their area till we move(in a month). I tried enticing them more into the yard with yummy treats(peas) but they wanted nothing of it.
