I heard great things about Bird Paradise in Burlington. I haven’t been (but keep meaning to take a trip there) but it’s about a 2 hour drive from my house! I will get there at some point though lol!

What kind of bird do you keep, any pics! How often should i clean the cage if i get one gcc?!

Any tips on doing a quick easy cleanup of bird waste that hopefully only falls down in the substrate? Thx

Re: Need parrot store in PA , Nj, de areas?

I've lived in PA my entire life except for one year in Charlotte, and there are not really any Bird Stores in all of PA...There are a few Pet Stores who breed birds in-house that I'm aware of, but nothing at all like Todd Marcus in NJ, that's probably the best Bird Store that I'm aware of anywhere close to PA if you're looking for a hand-raised baby parrot that is bred and hand-raised in-house by experienced bird breeders. And of course Todd Marcus breeds and brings in so many diffierent species that it's amazing...But as far as anywhere in PA, there are a few privately-owned Pet Shops in the Pittsburgh area who breed and hand-raise some parrots, one in-particular who actually has a "bird room" with lots of different species including Amazons, Macaws, etc., but they are brought in from private-breeders they buy from, they aren't bred in-house...And near Philly there is one in Allentown that I'm aware of that is similar...

Honestly, if you're looking for a hand-raised baby parrot of a certain species, and you are absolutely against adopting an adult from a Rescue, then your best bet is to find private breeders on sites such as birdbreeders.com, birdsnow.com, etc.

Are there special NJ laws that favor breeding those birds? Hope they don't import endangered species.

I'm not against rescue BUT the only issue I'm afraid is can they succumb to disease easily compared to baby bird from Todd's?

Debating between GCC and rosy bourke.... but latter is a ground bird I'm afraid it's gonna walk on its litter more than a gcc that can perch on a stand or stick above...

Any advice? Thx

Re: Need parrot store in PA , Nj, de areas?

As far as cleaning the cage of a Green Cheek, or ANY species of Parrot, you need to clean the cage at least once a week, and by "clean" I mean actually scrub the entire cage and everything in it...As far as changing the NEWSPAPER, BUTCHER PAPER, OR PAPER CAGE-LINERS IN THE BOTTOM OF THE CAGE UNDER THE GRATE, your best bet is to change them every single day, that way your job of doing an entire cage-cleaning will be much, much easier, there will be no smell, and your bird isn't going to be constantly inhaling the dust from dried droppings, which can cause Upper Respiratory Infections, Sinus Infections, Allergy reactions, etc. in both your Birds and you!

***YOU DO NOT EVER WANT TO USE/PUT ANY TYPE OF "SUBSTRATE", AS YOU USED THE TERM, IN THE BOTTOM OF YOUR BIRD'S CAGE!!!! THAT'S A HUGE NO-NO FOR A NUMBER OF IMPORTANT AND SOMETIMES LIFE-THREATENING REASONS!!! You should not EVER use any type of "Substrate" in the bottom of a bird's/parrot's cage (FIRST OF ALL IT'S NASTY!!! IT IS NOT EASIER BUT RATHER WAY MORE WORK THAN SIMPLY USING SHEETS OF EITHER NEWSPAPER, BUTCHER PAPER, PAPER CAGE-LINERS, ETC.)...With using only sheets of Newspaper, Butcher Paper, any other type of sheet-paper, paper Cage Liners, etc., all you have to do is literally just slide the clean sheets of paper in the bottom Tray of the cage, which should be UNDER THE GRATE so that your bird cannot get ahold of the paper and shred them to make a nest or eat, and then each day all you do is slide out the dirty sheets of paper, throw them away, and slide clean sheets of paper in! That's it!!! If you do this every morning after your bird does his first morning poop (the BIG one of the day), then it's no deal at all..If you wait it iis a huge deal...But with any type off "Substrate" it's not only inappropriate for your bird and can/almost ALWAYS WILL cause severe hormonal-behavior, aggression, and Egg-production in females as well as cause Bowel-Obstructions, Crop-Impactions, Poisoning/Toxicity, Choking, etc., but there is not one single type of "Substrate" that doesn't get horribly nasty and become a huge mess at the end of one single day in a bird cage!!! Between their droppings, their food, and their water (which they take baths in and are constantly knocking all over the place), any type of Substrates become a nasty, smelly, dangerous, and often lethal/fatal mess...

***[B]DO NOT EVER PUT ANY OF THE FOLLOWING IN THE BOTTOM OF YOUR BIRD'S/PARROT'S CAGE: No Rodent Bedding of any kind OR Wood Chips of any kind (both often cause bird's upper-respiratory issues and have toxic scents due to oils in the wood), No Crushed Walnut Shell Bedding OR Corn-Cob Bedding (**Both of these are the ones that often kill pet birds/parrots, along with pet Reptiles and Amphiibians), No Shredded-Paper Bedding such as Carefresh (Seen as/Used as Nesting-Material and is a HUGE Trigger of constant Hormonal-Behavior), No Sand, Dirt, Stones, Gravel, or any other loose Substrates of any kind at all OTHER THAN SHEETS OF PAPER/NEWSPAPER/PAPER CAGE LINERS!!!
