What Room Are Your Birds In?

I searched the forum trying to find a thread on this and there were just too many results for things like "bird room," so I'm sorry if this has been answered a million times, but I was just wondering... What room are your birds in? Specifically their daytime cages.

Do you have a room in your house designated for your birds? Do you keep them in a family room? I was just wondering because I live alone and there are really only two rooms of my three bedroom house that I am ever in for more than a minute: My bedroom and my living room. Right now Sammy's cage is in my living room, and I am planning to put the RB2's cage in here, too, though it will mean a LOT of cleaning of the living room every day! I have considered making one of the bedrooms the designated "bird room," but I am afraid that if I do that they won't feel like part of the family since I am usually chilling in the living room (you know, where the TV is...). I can't let my birds out on stands in the living room all day long because I also have dogs, and they need to be able to be in the house sometimes! Just wondering what other people do, considering that my main living room decor is about to become bird cages! (Goodbye curio cabinet, hello seeds and dust!)

Re: What Room Are Your Birds In?

I have three cages in my family room with the TV. The little guys like their cartoons. A cockatiel, two budgies and a male quaker. My quaker and cockatiel adore each other. The adjoining room was once a formal dining room, but who needs that? On very special occasions we roll the cages into the family room and borrow the dining room. If humans want to eat they have the breakfast nook. My cockatoo and female quaker share the dining room, it has a lot of natural light and they can see the TV in the family room. They are out most of the day in those two rooms while the dogs are in the other part of the house.

Hopefully our next home will have a huge sunroom for the birds. Maybe they will let us live there too.

Re: What Room Are Your Birds In?

I keep all 6 of my birds in my living room, as it's where the TV is haha.
I rearrange the furniture and cages often to figure out the best possible setup, but also to keep them used to change.

When I bring my CAG home, he'll be temporarily put in my front room, for quarantine, then I plan to use that room as his training room. The roost cage will go in there once the little one is ready to be around the other birds. I already have a spot picked out for little one's big cage in the living room when everyone is ready.

Re: What Room Are Your Birds In?

I have three in the dining room (two cages) and three in the bedroom (one cage). We put the cages like that for exact same reason because these are the only rooms we spend time in.

Mildred is in my parents bedroom, Norman is in the dining room and Trevor is in the hallway but sometimes I bring his cage in my bedroom.

Re: What Room Are Your Birds In?

We moved our living room into our family room, just so that all the birds could take part of all the 'action' all day long. So now all the cages are in the old dining room, which in actuality is just an extension of our living room. (Gees, am I making any sense??)

Anyway, from their location they can watch TV, and see us in the kitchen, too. (Fairly open floor plan).

THEN I moved our dinette set into the (new) dining room to make room for the 2 Java trees.

Just a tad bit nuts.....But the fids couldn't be happier, and that's what counts.

Re: What Room Are Your Birds In?

I'm glad you asked this question because I like to see the answers and I gather from one response...it changes. Like I change mine. I honestly do not like seeing all of the cages in my family room but that is pretty much where I live. I would love to make the formal dining room my bird cage room and then set up a play area in the family room for the birds to hang out.

I let my dog back in the house in the evenings after the birds have gone to bed and are covered up. I play with her for an hour or two and then I go to bed. Otherwise the dog bothers the birds...even in the cages.
