I have been searching for a “helmet” for a CAG (Congo African grey vs a TAG Timneh African grey) who has a photosensitivity issue in her eye from cataract surgery.
I want to find her a device she can were to make her eyesight more comfortable.
The parakeet in the helmet jumped out at me when I saw it. Do you know anyone who might be able to fabricate such headwear for Marie?

Kristy L. asks,
How can I help my budgie stop laying eggs?
We have allowed her to have two clutches and I can’t have any more babies.
Our vet wanted a depo shot which we did once with the vet’s advice and I don’t like what it did to her personality.
It’s been three months and now she has laid 2 eggs.
Rob K. has a “Light question”
Mitch, I have read much and understood all of your points about lighting.
My bird is a Congo African Grey.
My concern is that I have also read articles about the danger of eye damage such as cataracts from such closeness and intensity of the light. At the equator, high noon footcandles range from 9-10,000 and cycle up and down moonlight to moonlight (.01 FC @ full moon) and between dawn & dusk (10 FC).
I have a full spectrum bulb in my ceiling 5′ above his cage.
I look forward to getting your email every Sunday and reading it has become as much a ritual as the old Sunday paper.
And now I have a question for you.
Thunder and Lightning are my bonded parakeets.
I’ve had them for years.
Last summer I saw more and more breeding activity, so I bought a box and let nature take its course.
Thunder laid four eggs, one of which was fertilized.

Donna L. asks:
What should I do for a hormonal male caique, 17 years old?
Screaming while holding a toy with his beak on the cage bottom or screaming while hanging on the cage bars, screaming at 2:30 AM.
Losing weight, killing any toy he can find, and just starting to pick at his chest and bottom of his foot.
Editor’s note: I suggest a magnified visual of both feet bottoms seeking any sores or irritations. Endnote
Stopped eating his pellets (Harrisons), I have combined them with other pellets, not interested. Will eat them if I soak them in water and mix them with cooked bird rice and spaghetti.
