Best new purchases ever!! - Wanted to share!

Hi all! I wanted to share these with you.

I have had parrots for YEARS and only recently purchased these and can't believe I ever lived without them!! Bird safe cage liners that you can put a stack for the week in the catcher tray, and each day or every other day, simply roll out the top sheet - makes cage cleaning a BREEZE! And soiled sheets do not leak onto the ones below! The sizes don't quite fit my cages perfectly, so I buy the closest smaller size and just zig zag each sheet in the tray so the stack covers the whole thing, if that makes sense!

And Kaytee now makes a chewable play tunnel that is safe for parrots (no zinc or lead in the binding agent, made of cardboard, and dyed using vegetable dyes). I use these for happy hut substitutes because they don't have risks for choking, strangulation, foot entanglement, or encouraging nesting/aggressive behaviors because they aren't fluffy. You can also drill holes and string toys inside them (tons of ideas online). I used to buy a similar thing that was more expensive and came only from the UK, until I found these! OF COURSE TAKE THE BEDDING OUT because that is dangerous for parrots, but the tunnel itself if parrot safe - I confirmed with Fosters & Smith! Our birds love to chew the edges and they are very durable!

While I'm at it, I highly recommend "Poop Off" cage cleaner and quick wipes! I can't believe the time these save me with the poo poo chores! LOL!

I'm hooked on F&S!

Those liners are great. It will be expensive to do all our cages but even twice a week won't be so bad.

The Chewbular tubes are great. One of the custom toys I bought of etsy uses them to hang and while Oliver hasn't figured it out yet, I'm sure he will love it when the time comes.

Great post, for liners, try cutting vinyl wallpaper to size!
