Re: Show me your cages!!!

Oh boy. In the last two days Ive bought more stuff for Carl. BUT. I got 2 grapevine perches (similar to manzanita), a couple rope perches, a few cage mount foraging toys, a large hanging shredding toy and some wood blocks/shredding/chewing refils. Its become pretty apparent that Carl isnt much to play with a toy that he cant destroy. So I'll be looking at making my own soon using untreated pine and balsa and yucca woods.

He has, however, discovered the joys of shredding phone books. Which rules, because those are easy to come by. And a client of mine brought in a big bag full of pine cones that she also collects for her galah. Took him a few minutes to investigate but once he saw I'd hidden some pellets in them he went right in.

Ive noticed he's starting to use other noises/words instead of always doing the high flock call. So we're making some progress! I think the calls he makes even when I'm in the room are because even though he has toys I think they're either the wrong type (not destructable) and he doesn't really know how to play...so Ive been showing him how to ring bells etc. Hopefully that helps!

Re: Show me your cages!!!

My lot love the pinecones!! Would probably pay to chuck them in the oven and bake them first, incase there are any nasties.
Sounds like you're doing awesome

Re: Show me your cages!!!

Recently got this cage still messing around with setup, Wish I went smaller than 1inch bar spacing had to put pvc mesh on cage floor as his foot would fall through often and some sea grass mats on the vertical bars as he couldn't move around easily

Re: Show me your cages!!!

I have some thick cardboard and layers of papers on top of the grate in Plums cage and tbh he loves just peeling the paper back to get to the cardboard. Makes it easy to clean, just scoop up 2/3 sheets, two times a day, quick and easy.

I went with a not so deep cage that has horizontal bars on all sides. You can make it easier and use some of their energy by placing perches in a step formation and/or use rope/cotton perches to climb on. Could almost do with some of the things they use on human climbing walls to attach to the bars LOL?

PS Any contenders for a name yet?
