Ok, Thanks for the help everyone I do have a caroet in middle of my room, but that gets messy anyways. Also my mum did warn me about feces and feathers coming out the cage with my budgies, but surprisingly my budgies arenít really messy, they only get seeds and feathers out. But also mum warned me about feces smell infecting my room, but I donít think I should worry much since my house is super-ventilated! Once again, thanks for the help!

Re: Are gccs messy?

Buy a big rug or a mat to go under the cage. I just have a wipe every day and then 2 full cage cleans every week but i dont think i need to really, i have cleaning issues or OCD. It wouldnt be too much work cleaning up after a small Parrot x

Re: Are gccs messy?

I think all parrots are messy, it's something any prospective parrot owner must consider. Even with a seed shield, theres a lot of vacuuming, wiping and constant cleaning of cages and play gyms. A small sacrifice to make in my opinion. My mom also used to freak about hygiene. Just clean everyday.
one day I'm going to grow wings

your parrot is a part of your world, but you are your parrot's whole world.

Re: Are gccs messy?

Birds are messy. For instance this morning my baby Nanday Conure, Fin, pooped his morning poop (basically 12 hours of poop from sleeping) off the side of his cage causing it to drop down the whole cage and get into crevasses that a miracle of modern science can't even clean out. So yeah....good morning to me lol

Re: Are gccs messy?

Birds in general are messy. This is the second conure I've owned. Both were and are messy. I'd don't think they are meant to be totally caged birds. Baby spends a lot of time on top of the cage on the play gym,but the floor gets covered with bird poop and bits of news paper, he loves to tear and watch fall to the floor. He also loves to sit on the back of my wheelchair and it gets covered too. Baby is 2. He keeps me entertained and I no longer get depressed. For me the mess is worth the joy he gives.
