This is the Hospital Cage we made, based on a setup
loaned to us by our Vet when our bird had a calcium
deficiency crisis from laying too many eggs.
We bought these parts and built 2 whole setups
of these items to be able to prepare a clean cage
to transfer the sick bird into each day and have
it ready next to the dirty cage when you want to
move the bird from the dirty one to the clean
hospital cage. It is less stress on the bird than
trying to catch him/her additional times for moving.
We've had 100% success with this setup since
then when any of our birds has been injured or ill.
Admittedly, ours is a low-tech solution - but it is
well within reach of most any family's budget.
We have the Full Spectrum light on a lamp timer
so it is only "on" during the same daylight hours
schedule the bird is used to at the time of being
in the Hospital Cage. The light is not a heat source
the heating pad under the hospital age provides
all the needed heat 24/7.
