|Nancy Coats and her husband, Lee, designed and created a feeding station for their two Solomon Island Eclectus parrots named Sweet Pea and Carmine. They were tired of the mess that the birds made with their soft foods and this solved the problem beautifully. The mess is completely contained in this easy-to-clean feeding station. The birds actually enjoy visiting their special restaurant now. If you have questions, you can Email Nancy at this address: firstname.lastname@example.orgThese dimensions are for 2 Solomon Island Eclectus Parrots. You can adjust dimensions to fit the size of your bird(s).Materials
Click images to enlargePurchase a 6″ or higher perch with cups & places to put toys, etc. Line/Design has the best perches for this 1-800-767-4208. They have enough cups and holes in the sides of the perches to add toys/key rings, etc. You can also purchase a perch for one bird with toys already on one side. They clean up and sanitize well.
WHERE TO FIND
USING THE FEEDING STATIONPut the feeder on a formica table or something that can be wiped off and sanitized. Make sure the back is near a wall so the birds will feel safe. Also make sure they are not in direct sunlight. There is no bottom to this feeder because it will clean up a lot easier. Just put newspaper on the bottom and throw it away after each feeding. The first time you place your bird(s) in the feeder, lower the top “very” slowly, inch by inch, so they are not startled. They will watch you lower the lid down for the first few days. They will eventually feel comfortable and sing/talk between eating and playing and can remain in the feeder for 2-4 hours. Your birds can now eat all kinds of messy foods and all will be contained in the feeder. Use grapefruit extract & water, or vinegar & water, to clean up. Dry with a paper towel. Enjoy!
