I'm so appreciating all the input on taking care of my new lovie! I apologize for all the questions, but I'm getting answers that make sense. Straight from the beak of the bird My Perry keeps going to the bottom of his cage. Is this a sign he wants a bath? He isn't staying on the cage floor. He'said been entertaining me with his climbing antics! My cage is fairly large and besides newspaper and paper towel, what are some ideas for a pan liner? There is a grate that keeps the bird from reaching pan. I was thinking perhaps parchment paper or freezer paper. I don't get a daily newspaper and I'll go through paper towel way too quick with size of pan. Thanks again!
