Hello, Brenda -

There are products named "seed catchers" and "seed guards" which one can purchase or mak. oneself

Just use your favorite search engine (Bing, Google, Yahoo Search, etc.) and enter these search phrases (separately), using quotation marks as shown:
"seed catcher"
"seed guard"

They do not keep seeds from coming out of a bird cage. Instead, they are designed to catch much of the debris from a bird cage. making clean up less messy.

Best wishes.

Goodquestion! Although most people are familiar with bird seed as the main sourceof bird food, there are other things you can feed your bird such as:
  • Water
  • Suet
  • Nectar (easyto make yourself)
  • Grit
  • Peanuts
  • Fruit
  • Mealworms

Depending upon the breed, Peep for a small bird that peeps a lot or Squawk for a large, noisy bird. But any name will do as long as it recognizes it as their name and respond to it.

Not really... Powder sugar has added cornstarch that is normally used as a thickener and will thicken if heated. It is an okay substitute for dusting cookies, donuts and things like that, but other than that *I* don't recommend using it as a substitute.

Cage size is a very crucial element in regards to proper bird care. The tail of your bird should never touch the back or bottom of the cage when sitting on their perch. A very general rule to follow is that the width of the cage should be at least 1-1/2 times as wide as your bird's wingspan. Keep in mind that it is not just your bird(s) inhabiting the cage but you will need a perch and most likely some toys. My personal recommendation is to buy the largest cage you can afford.

Ze worden heet tijdens het gebruik en koelen af als ze niet worden gebruikt. Ze verslijten na verloop van tijd en moeten worden vervangen.

Hello, Donald -

Could you mean Katee brand Yo Dips Bird Treats:

If my guess is incorrect, if you have not already done so, I suggest you find online discussion forums about parakeets and small parrots and ask your question on them. Registration on the forums will be required to ask a question.

This is a link to one discussion forum:

Best wishes.
