    Remember to Lock your Cages!

    I know, this sounds like common sense, but this is so INCREDIBLY important and can be a dangerous or even fatal mistake!!! I made this mistake myself today, and I’m so glad it did not end badly. I left Rico’s cage unlocked, because I forgot to close the latch. I have a bad habit of not...

    Love bird went out of cage while outside

    Today I came home from school and checked up on my parrot outside and saw that the door was open he and was not in his cage. I looked straight and saw him sitting on a rose plant, and I'm really thankful that he hadn't flown any further. He is safe now, but I only realized 2 minutes later to how...

    Old and goofy bird cage thread!

    This is a thread where you can share old bird cages or some really goofy looking cages. This is just to look at the past and appreciate how far we have come in the husbandry of our avian friends!

    Spring Cage Setup!

    This is Rico’s spring/summer cage! This cage is sadly not fit for outdoor use (the top can be picked off by a raven or a magpie even and it could topple over if a dog or cat leaned against it so it will not be used outside) so I will be using his flight cage for his sunning time! It is like...

    Is there any safe paints for touching up a rusted/ chipped bird cage?

    I have a large cage that has started to chip and rust, I’ve sanded those spots down, I’m just wondering if there’s any safe spray paints available to cover it up. No birds would be in the cage until the paint is done curing, and of course the cage would be painted outside.

    Need Help Finding Cage

    Hello! I have two parrotlets, and I’m looking to find a cage that has a divider to help with space. I bought one, but I need to return it, because it has no bars to hang toys, and the top isn’t flat (I thought it had a flat top with a pointed top as just design/aesthetic). So it isn’t going to...

    A very timid and untrusting Mealy Amazon

    Hi! My Mealy Amazon is 1 year old and we got him/her from a breeder about 10 days ago. He is warming up very slowly to his new cage and environment. It took him 3-4 days to try and nibble the toys and he is always reluctant to step on new perches unless it is placed in his cage for 4-5 days. We...
