    I have gone from 4 birds last month to 7 at this time. I had Da Tielish Ones, Nibble, Piper and Dodger and Miss Riti, the Kakariki in four cages. Then I got Cheddar the GCC, in his own cage. 5 birds in 4 cages. But it wasn't too bad at least they were in one room and Dodger was itching to get in with Nibble and Piper in the Big House and he did so now I'm down to 3 cages.

    Then a friend had to have a knee replacement done so I have her Tiel, Miss Moneypenny and English Budgie, Winston. They are each in their own cage and in the livingroom her as I didn't have enough room in the birdroon/computer room for them. So now I stand at 7 birds in 5 cages in 2 rooms. It use to take 15-20 minutes a day to deal with the mess not it's closer to 45 minutes.5

    The biggest slob it Winston, the smallest make BY FAR the biggest mess. One thing I have learned from this is I have too many birds here. 5 is pushing what I can deal with so having 7 is a quick cure for MBS!

    Are the number of birds temporary?

    2 of them are, Moneypenny and Winston will be going home when Sly is home. Leaving me with 5. I can deal with them as the three Tiels are in one cage now, leaving Riti and Cheddar in their own cages. It's not so much thew number of cages or birds but having to clean 2 room every day that makes it a PITA.

    Just take over mine for a week and you'll feel like you are on vacation...o_O

    I'm not sure why I don't remember that quinoa and berry mix is the worst mess making meal for them...but normally I start out with "oooh, I'll make that, it's their favorite"

    of course it doesn't show the berry mess all over my shirt, cages and other things in the room...but an hour later with my handy dandy garden sprayer full of f10 and paper towels, it's reasonable. It was so messy I had to sweep before I could walk around changing bowls. :wacky:

    I do have a floor cleaner which is the bomb for this stuff but the birds have to be put away (they fear the evil beast). So I go the hard way so I don't skimp on their time out.

    Son James has actually taught his cat, Madison, to go potty in the toilet. Now she needs to learn how to flush ...
