You need one like this when you have 4 powder down birds. I had an Ott light floor lamp beside it and Nikki destroyed the cord. Anybody have any tips for keeping cords protected? The outlet is really close to her cage but outlets are at a premium at my place and I like the air cleaner in the dining room where the cages are. I wanted to move the cage back against the wall and window but the food portals are in the way and you can't put the bowls into the holders inside the cage because there are metal pieces so the bird can't pull the dish out. What is a girl to do? Now I have to get the Ott light cord repaired and it's not easy because they have special plugs.
