lineolated parakeet, Bipper
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 been upstairs most of the time enjoying the sudden heat.
my bird has been in a travel cage for a few days while we get the air conditioner fixed, (travel cage is very large, we just decided not to bring his absolute elephant of a cage down the stairs.)
When I was ready, I got all of his toys out of the cage and it took 5 minutes to get his cage about 5 steps from the bonus room to the bathroom.
then it took another ten to take the cage apart and soak the toys in the sink while the large perches and cage parts went in the tub.
after many flashbacks of clogging the drain last time, I decided to hose down the bottom tray…….
The drain was still very clogged anyways!

So I had to run downstairs and sneak some baking soda and vinegar upstairs to unclog the drain. Sticking my hands in the poop-infested water was the worst part.

After about twenty minutes everything went down the drain nicely and I cleaned everything off with a towel.
Oh the things I’ll do for my bird :ROFLMAO:

Oh my gosh, I can so relate to your story! I have had that happen as well when cleaning, what a pain!
When we moved into our last house, a few of our cages wouldn't come apart and we had to remove door trim and cut holes in the drywall to get them into the room.
I can definitely relate to the things we do for our birds:)

I hope your AC is fixed now!

Amy a Blue Front 'Zon
Jonesy a Goffins 'Too who had to be rehomed :-(

And a Normal Grey Cockatiel named BB who came home with me on 5/20/2016.
Happy that I have a steam cleaner and power washer! In summer I can roll Amys mansion out the front door and carry BB's condo out and power wash everything in ten minutes but on cold/winter day's I rely on the steam cleaner. Takes more time and gives grief but well worth it.
