    Cage shenanigans and a tired Bird dad - Story Time!

    Today was cage cleaning day for my parakeet… It was quite a hassle!!! - To start off, the air conditioner has been broken for a few days, it’s 85 degrees upstairs and low seventies downstairs. I find that I am quite a chameleon when it comes to this sudden change in temperature and I have...

    Cleaner recommendations!

    My Jenday loves to poop right against his cage door (probably because he likes to make my life difficult). The screws and tight areas are very difficult to clean and quickly get caked with bird poop. Any recommendations for those tight areas?:rainbow1:

    Home disinfectants for bird room?

    Hello! A few of my budgies are recovering from bacterial infections and to prevent future issues and maybe help speed recovery, I was thinking of moving them to another room for a few days, spraying the bird room (where they spend most of their time in) with disinfectant and letting it air out...

    Household Cleaning wipes?

    Hi :) I was just wondering whether anyone knows if household anti- bacterial wipes and baby wipes are safe to use around a bird? They wouldn't be used on toys or the cage but very nearby- in the same room I know sprays and aerosols aren't good but what about wipes? I can post the ingredients...

    Help! Mold

    Let me just get this out of the way: Yes, I know mold is bad. Yes, all of the birds are upstairs in our split level house. No, there is nowhere outside the house for them to go. Ok, so my question is, how do I get rid of mold? I've heard vinegar is okay. Any specific instructions? From anyone...

    Should I clean a new cage?

    We are finally moving into our new home with only a few more weeks before our Māui gets to come home! I wondering if I need to clean the new cage we bought? Of course I’m going to give it a wipe over with water but is that enough or do I have to give it a proper clean with a vinegar/water mix?

    Perch cleaning question

    Harry has been with me 2 1/2 months now. We do daily hand training sessions but we are not beyond having my whole hand just inside a food dish door. He get frantic when I get more invasive with things like removing or installing perches. He has eight perches he uses all the time. I try to...

    DIY cage cleaner??

    Hi all! Does anyone make their own cage cleaner or "poop off" cleaners? If so would you mind sharing your recipes with me? I've read that some people use water, lemon juice, and baking soda, but I'm concerned that the combination of baking soda and lemon juice may damage my cage in the long...

    Might Have Made An Invention That Will Make Cage Cleaning Easier

    So yesterday I posted my idea about a self automated cleaning cage that dissolves debris and more, some people liked it and some people did not. Me and my group found out that this idea will not be safe for birds and scratched the idea completely, but we came up with something else for bird...

    Invention For Conures (But Other Birds Too!)

    Hello, so I am in grade 7 and I am doing this thing with my friends in a group called the "invention convention." We needed to come up with an invention that solves a problem, build it, test it and market it. We came up with the idea of a bottom of a bird cage that when the bird throws food or...

    Hi! I have a wonderful, spunky little green cheek conure called Ellie. I never thought I would be able to bond with a bird again after I lost my childhood sun conure, but Ellie takes such good care of me. I recently moved in with my boyfriend who lives in the city. Ellie moved with me and...

    Cleaning poop off of wood perches?

    Doing my weekly cleaning of Linus's cage, I found a spot with overlapping perches and I hadn't noticed he has been pooping all over the lower perches. How can I clean this so that it is all removed and sanitary?
