Not really... Powder sugar has added cornstarch that is normally used as a thickener and will thicken if heated. It is an okay substitute for dusting cookies, donuts and things like that, but other than that *I* don't recommend using it as a substitute.

Cage size is a very crucial element in regards to proper bird care. The tail of your bird should never touch the back or bottom of the cage when sitting on their perch. A very general rule to follow is that the width of the cage should be at least 1-1/2 times as wide as your bird's wingspan. Keep in mind that it is not just your bird(s) inhabiting the cage but you will need a perch and most likely some toys. My personal recommendation is to buy the largest cage you can afford.

Ze worden heet tijdens het gebruik en koelen af als ze niet worden gebruikt. Ze verslijten na verloop van tijd en moeten worden vervangen.

Hello, Donald -

Could you mean Katee brand Yo Dips Bird Treats:

If my guess is incorrect, if you have not already done so, I suggest you find online discussion forums about parakeets and small parrots and ask your question on them. Registration on the forums will be required to ask a question.

This is a link to one discussion forum:

Best wishes.

A cockatiel will lose its tail feathers and some other feathers at least once a year, usually, again, around this time of year. This is called a molt. It is similar to shedding. They will grow their feathers back, it is okay. During this time, tail feathers usually look very weak and mangled. Again, this is normal.

Bad Habits are very hard to brake once they have got away with it.!!! Cockatiel's are chewers, get the bird some apple limbs, plum, (no cherry wood) that are known not to have been sprayed or anything you can get the bird to chew on. The trick is for you to not let them get away with it , you half to be vigilant about it , show them , tell them, scold them but be sure to Praise them on good behavior, do not reward bad behavior, cage lock the bird for time outs for bad behavior... good luck !! <:0}
