just totally re-done Finchy's enclosure and wanted advice and thoughts....
he seems to be climbing on top of the hut which is not good what should i do..... also does everyone think he will be ok getting in and out of the water and food bowls?
any ideas on improvements etc would be much appreciated
thanks in advance guys and gals :2thumb:
it could be bigger i agree but i have been given LOADS of advice from people who have these indoor rabit/guinea cages with torts in with no isses but i dont know anythingIt looks a little small for him to me, also I wouldn't have the slate under the heat as it could get too hot for him to bask. Are you using a combi bulb? As I can't see any other UV source?
thanks will be moving the slate right away so heat source is just over soil and finchy can eat somewhere else the dish is just mixed leaves and tortoise pellets in the flat oneDefinitely agree about the light over the slate - it will get very hot and be dangerous. Also the food will get very dried up (not sure what it is in the dish) if under the heat source.
They do climb the bars of the cages and can of course fall backwards.
Pics of my new table...
In it I'm using hemp, readigrass, soil, wooden playstix, stones and slate so they have different textures to explore.
:gasp: That's fab!! I need to sort mine out as have just found that Bennie is really Bella & KC (who we thought was female) is a little boy! ooops
You really want to change that substrate to top soil or Kokosnot from Ikea.
