Isn't it purty? LOL

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.

Get PVC pipe and run the cord through it. The pvc is strong enough to withstand the bite and protects the wire. I did this with Cassie's UV light on the wall. Nancy

I had this type a few years ago. But as with all filters, I burnt it out.

What I liked about it was that it is just a plain filter. It uses a pre-filter like for A/C and then it has a micron filter bag for the really fine stuff.

Power cords are relatively easy to fix. Have you considered doing it yourself? How badly is it broken? Do you have pictures?

I've already asked a friend to buy a new cord and replace it for me. No, it couldn't be fixed, she chewed it up by the plug and it's not a regular plug. It can't be spliced.

When cockatoos destroy something, they do a really good job. LOL

You can go to an electrical supply store and get armored cable - what used to be called BX. They can probably cut you a length and put a plug on it. Lowes/HomeDepot should also have it.

Here's a link to show what it is...
