    Please get rid of that corn cob!!
    Go back to using news paper
    A layer of paper can be removed in seconds and no dry poop dust
    The corn cob is a wonderland of mold and bacteria!!
    If the bird gets some in her crop it will puff up like a sponge
    and not pass. -Dead bird-
    Corn cob is some Bad stuff and should not be used around birds
    I have been to the places this stuff is processed
    -rats,mice,mold,bugs,nasty- & remember mouse poop dust has
    hookworms that can get into your bird FROM THE DUST!!
    Just place severial layers of paper in the bottom of the cage &
    remove a layer 1 or 2x a day.
