    Bath sprays or just water?

    Hi, I was wondering if I should stick to just using water to bathe my baby CAG or if I should also start using some sort of aloe bath spray. I have heard good and bad things about using aloe bath sprays and just want to do what’s best for my bird.

    Is this cage ok?

    My 7 year old African Grey desperately needed a new cage. I saw Gizmo the grey with this cage and the websites I saw said it was OK for Greys, so I assumed it was good enough for him. Fast forward to now, after purchasing, I’m convincing myself that it’s not appropriate. Here is the cage in...
