    Ceaseless bar biting

    Hello. My GCC, Roach, is going to be 2 in the summer and over the past month or so he's picked up an absolutely awful habit of biting at the bars of his cage for hours at a time. I can hear it through earplugs, through headphones, throughout my entire house and it's driving me crazy! I've tried...

    Is 64"L x 32"W x 73"H to small for a blue and gold?

    Due to unforeseen events I am having to downsize my Santiago’s cage size. His current cage is 81.6"L x 86.4"W x 63.6"H, and the only cage I can find that is close in size without being another aviary is only 64"L x 32"W x 73"H. 32” W just doesn’t sound big enough to me, what do you guys think...

    Conure won’t come out of cage!

    Hi everyone, I’m quite new to this site but I thought I’d give it a try. Basically, I’ve had my green conure, Kiwi, for around 4 years. He was given to me when I was 12, and I took the best care of him alongside my mom. I took him out basically every day, but sometimes I would not do it if I...

    Green Cheek Hates Big Cage Help?

    I recently adopted a green cheek from pet smart, we fell in love with him from the start, and he is very loving we named him Teeko. Pet smart didnt have his age on the paperwork but id say he is somewhere around 5 to 7 months old. We bought him a smaller cage to ride comfortably in the car on...

    The time has come...

    I brought my Quaker home knowing their reputation for being little escape artists. She just turned one at the beginning of July, and she is definitely coming into her own... meaning she is pursuing her destined career as an escape artist. I don't think the problem is that I'm not letting her out...

    Help! AGS Rust Paint for chipped cage?

    Has anyone used this paint for their cages? I just bought this new Borneo cage from Exotic Nutrition. It shipped in panels in 3 large boxes. I'm mostly happy with it, but some of the panels have very small areas of chipping powder coating or corners where it seems the powder coating did not...

    Green Cheek hates to be put away

    I have a 6 month old fully winged. It’s always been a struggle to put him away- I would only take him out after work since he would fly from corner to corner until I could grab him. He will go in his cage to sleep on his own though. I recently started letting him out in the morning while I get...

    Cage Set Up - Needs and Musts

    Hi all, A family member of mine is urging me to take on the family parrot, they’ve had him for 12 years and are out of their wits due to their lack of bird knowledge. I’m a wildlife fosterer so because I often have wild birds in my care they want me to take him. He’s lived in the same musty...

    Cage for senegal?

    I've had my 7yo Senegal for about two months and it's getting pretty clear that her current cage is too small. She came with it from her previous home (and I assume has spent a lot of her life there), but I work during the day and she hates being confined. Everyone will be happier if she has...

    Cage sizing question for ARN

    I don't know if this warrants its own thread here rather than my current Ringneck thread but I didn't easily find one after searching the forum. For anyone who's had an African Ringneck, would you recommend following bar spacing for a cockatiel? Or bigger like a conure? My little guy just seems...

    Cage perch clamp washers too small--found large enough washers to DIY better support

    The perches that were bought for these cages came with round clamping washers that are just a bit too small. Instead of reaching 4 horizontal bars, they only touched on 2, barely 3, which isn't enough for adequate support... which makes the perches a little wobbly. And in tightening to correct...

    IRN cage upgrade!

    So I've had my ringneck for around 4 days now and is pretty skittish and freaks out when I go too close to his cage. The current cage has bowls that I have to stick my hand into the cage to change and doing this causing my IRN to go crazy. So I've decided to upgrade to one that has dedicated...

    Okay so here’s my situation. I recently lost my sun conure Katniss, and it obviously broke my heart after bonding with her all those years and I knew I needed another bird in my life. I live with my parents, and they didn’t hate my last bird, but after she bonded to me she started getting...
