    How frustrating when companies don't stand behind their products.

    A small scare

    It is scary when they freak out, especially won't you don't initially know the cause. I haven't had that happen with Timber before.

    Strange Posture...And Very Concened.

    This is the bulb I use: https://www.amazon.com/Zoo-Med-24975-Compact-Fluorescent/dp/B000KH9S88/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1539033229&sr=8-4&keywords=avian+sun+lamp I have this cheap floor lamp, which has lasted since 2013. It seems very cheap, but it has really held up well considering. https://www.amazon.com/Zoo-Med-AvianSun-Deluxe-Floor/dp/B006L49LHC/ref=sr_1_15?ie=UTF8&qid=1539033375&sr=8-15&keywords=zoomed+lamp The one SR posted above looks nice.

    Sunlight isn't possible for us but I do the full spectrum avian light every day. It is important. Sure glad to hear she is better!

    Unusual behaviour

    I tried taking Timber's boxes away (because some said that encouraged nesting and amorous behavior) and I didn't think it made any difference at all. He loves his boxes so much that I gave them back and never looked back on that one.

    Hello and welcome! You have a beautiful flock.

    Unusual behaviour

    I have nothing to offer. Timber gets a bit amorous at times too. I ignore the behavior and keep hands off until it passes. Have to feel for them though!

    First vet trip

    Glad to hear he's better today! It is scary (to me anyway) when they do anything "out of character" because they hide illness. It's good you have a vet who can see him so quickly.

    As Greytness said, make sure you are seeing an avian vet. One comment I'd make is you might want to go to flat perches rather than round. Perching low like that can rub their keel and even split it with time. My TAG has a seizure disorder and a neurological condition, and that's the first thing the avian vet told me to do, get him off round perches.
