Happy Hut after green cheek conures death

Happy Hut after death of green cheek conure.

I recently lost my green cheek conure I believe to a respiratory illness. I am unsure whether I can sanitize the happy hut or should I throw it away and get a new one should I get a new bird.

Thank you,

Lisa

My sun is the worst for that, my Greenies do not mess with their hut. What I am planning to do for the Sun is make one from the appropriate wood that he can chew, and get into at night to sleep. They love the things, and he has been angry with me ever since I removed them. He went through them like water, and I was afraid of him become hurt from the shredding of the material. I am so sorry for your friends loss. How tragic. But, that has been my thought totally. I plan to notch the areas so that they fit without glue or nails. That way, it is totally natural. Again, only wood from the non toxic list that has not been treated,

first off, I am so sorry for you loss. They are like our family.

Me, I would not use anything that I could not sanitize and boil, and actually, having lost my love, my little greenie to an injury, I will never get over it, I would not take any chances. The cost of the hut just would not be worth the chance to me.

Happy Hut

A Happy Hut is relatively inexpensive to replace so I would toss it and get a new one if you decide to get another bird. Most birds do not require a Happy Hut to sleep in and the hut can be dangerous. My stepdaughter had a Sun Conure that loved to chew and rip apart its Happy Hut, so they had to replace it often. They were out shopping for another Happy Hut and came home to find their Bella dead after she had become tangled up in the loose threads of the Happy Hut.

If you decide to get another bird, try not to get a Happy Hut for it. Also be sure to thoroughly clean the cage but do not use harsh chemicals such as bleach as any residue could make the new bird sick.
