    8ee5915ad18c59b690471f370c6c63f6.jpg This is an interesting idea, what do you guys think? Would the fake leaves be safe? Do you think it would just be shredded and need to be replaced sooner than I'm imagining? Hmmm..

    I’m not sure those cages don’t look like they were made for birds. Maybe your tiel but I’m not sure how well it would go with the new Too! o_O

    That setup looks like it is for a rat or ferret.
    Regardless, I think it would be a good idea for budgies, however I think that your birds would shred that daily.

    I've been tempted by fake plants to give a little tropical-forest-feeling in the outdoor cage, thinking real plants wouldn't tolerate the weather here and they would have to be safe + survive being chewed and pooped on. But then, fake plants are made of plastic and my birds love to chew and eat it, so that's not an option here :meh:

    I have a 7' live non-weeping willow tree and a palm tree in the birdie room. They love to climb them and nibble/shred the leaves. I empty their water bowls into the plant pots and they thrive on the extra nutrition.

    I've taken a bunch of single pics of their room and play areas, never did a video or anything like that.

    Angel did the redecorating of my paint by the corner of the window in the last couple weeks. I guess he wanted to add his own little touch to his bedroom!

    Yes, about 8 years ago. And just to be sure I took leaf samples and the info on each tree to my vet to get her ok before moving them into the babies play area. The trees probably aren't as beautiful as they would be without birdies playing on them, but they don't look too bad!

    :D My birds look at ours from afar and hold still, in case the monster could fly and get them! But the more I use it, the more they get used to it. ;)

    the floor is carpet covered in clear vinyl so it cleans up pretty easily. It's cleaning up the droppings that land on the toys, swings, ladders, and perches that takes so long to clean. But we make a game of cleaning up! Whatever I'm working on is suddenly the thing they all just have to play with! Lol

    Thanks!!! I spend at least 50% of my day with them so they get plenty of attention. But when I can't be with them, it makes me happy that they all have plenty of activities to keep them busy. It's the same premise we all use with our little children!
