This is Jewels, I have had her 8 yrs and covered her cage with an ugly 70's bed sheet.  . I was given a stack of restaurant tablecloths and decided to make a nice bird cage cover for her. She likes a peep hole, so thats why its opened like that. It took maybe 35 minutes to make, now I feel bad she had to look at the sheet for 8 yrs. My kid says I should make a cover that looks like a tv with a plastic window and call it bird tv.
shameless cute pic, forgive her appearence shes molting

ha thats a great bird
i love the colors
my mom had an african sennigal (sp?) for 4 yrs.  the bird would not shut up.  Angry at 5AM every morning, regardless of the day, it would sing off-key "I LEFT MY HEAAARRTTT IN SAN FRAN" and would never add the "SISCO".   i fed it french fries  Grin

eventually, for some reason, the bird started to hate me and it plucked all of its feathers out while i was away at school one day... i came home and it looked like a chicken (where's the bbq sauce?).  she had to give the bird to a friend of hers who had another bird.  the birds talked to each other all the time and finally the bird grew feathers and would chat at me and do that "kiss/nibble" thing to my cheek.  i kept my eyes closed so it wouldn't attack my retina.

so, yup, that's my bird story.


oh and your cover is very nice..looks like you bought it that way!!  i agree with your kid.  make a "Tv" one and title it "bird tv".  thats hysterical!

Life isn't complete 'til you crochet a uterus for a friend.  Just make sure your fallopian tubes point down and not up! No one needs to lose an eye this way! Wink

Well the singing in the moning is flock calling all parrots do it, as for the feather plucking that can be a number of things, poor diet, boredom, jealousy, I am glad the bird stopped, some cant and become addicted to father plucking.. Since she stopped when she was put with another birdy it was probably boredom. They can be very neurotic lol, and even feel hate jealousy and they have a sense of humor. I swear Jelwes watchs the 70's show and finds Kelson hysterical, cause thats the only time she makes her evil clown birdy laugh.

Aw, I love Eclectus.  Yours is beautiful!

I have a Blue-Fronted Amazon and a Blue and Gold Macaw, who both need nice cage covers.  We've been using sheets too.  Great job!  Cheesy

You'r eclectus is gorgeaus! I my self have a sun conure Smiley Very brilliant cover you've made! I have two cages for my parrot, one who is inside a very dark and boring room because of how big it is, the cage doesn't fit anywhere else, he sleeps there and I put him there when we are cooking, then I have a more proper cage for him near a sunny window in the kitchen, our house is really big and the kitchen, living room and tv room are pretty much the same room Smiley Big open place.
