    My sun conure is chewing through the paint coat on his A&E cage and I don't know what to do!! Should I buy a better quality cage like stainless steel or aluminum? I didn't even know a sized beak like his could chew through the paint. I also don't know if I should get in contact with a...

    Hello! We have 3 birds: Holmes (Zebra Finch) and Maus (Society Finch) and Lucca (male Canary). Holmes was best friends with his buddy, Watson, who sadly passed last year.

    Hi everyone! I'm looking at getting a new cage for my beautiful cockatiel, but the bar spacing is 18mm or 0.7 inches. Is this to large for a Cockatiel? All comments appreciated :)

    Widowed Finch and Advice for the Future

    Hello friends, We said goodbye this morning to our dear Spice finch hen, Nutmeg. Her mate, Cinnamon, has been calling out today and it breaks my heart. They were purchased together, and I've had them about six years. I'm worried about buying just one more finch for him, and having him leave us...

    Huge, Beautiful Black King's Cage For Large Parrots - Macaw, Cockatoo

    This cage was used to house a pair of Moluccan Cockatoos. They have since been re-homed and now their beloved huge cage needs a home. Cages are not made like this anymore. This is an extremely heavy (probably weighs in excess of 250 pounds) and well-made cage. The manufacturer is King’s Cages...

    What Is This Beautiful King's Cage Worth?

    Hi everyone. I rescued a pair of Moluccan 'Toos. She had them in separate cages as one was having issues plucking her chest pretty bad and she didn't want the other one over-grooming the area. One of the cages she had was this large King's Cage. It's very, very heavy. Long story short, before...

    How do I help my budgie acclimate to a new cage?

    Hi everyone! I'm currently researching new cage options for Frankie, my 2.5 year old budgie, and I was curious if other parakeet parents had insights on ways to help her acclimate to a new cage and reduce any anxiety she may have about the change. Her current cage is really too small and not...

    Indian Ring Neck not wanting to leave their cage

    I’ve had an indian ring neck for a few months since he was about 2 months old from a breeder. He has done really well since we got him and steps up and loves to sit on my shoulder. The only thing is lately he has not wanted to leave his cage. I will keep the door open and he may come out once a...

    Mediating the mess

    So this might be a foolish question but here it goes… How do you experienced owners keep the house clean? We have a 7 month old conure who loves to play in and outside of his cage. We have a relatively small open concept house which means he does all of his living where we do too. I’m not...

    Should I get another bird for my birb?

    My birb(intentional spelling) Emmi is around 6 years old now she(at least what the breeder and the vet said, no blood test) and I think that she would do well with having another friend to keep her company when I’m out and about. I forget to mention that she is a Goffin Cockatoo and a pretty...

    Disinfecting a Used Bird Cage

    Hi there, I'm picking up a used decent sized cage for my ekkie tomorrow - the original owner of the cage had a blue and gold macaw who unfortunately passed away due to circumstances unrelated to health, according to the seller. I don't want to use bleach due to the affect it has on the wildlife...

    Where the babies should live

    My caiques recently had three babies. They're doing well, and they all live in a pretty large cage for the moment. The babies are about two months old now, so they're fledging and starting to eat food. They're also getting bigger, and though the cage is large, I'm thinking it probably is going...

    Yaheetech bird cage grate replacement

    I posted a thread yesterday and I was recommended to contact Yaheetech about their replacement parts. Sadly, they haven’t answered my calls or emails. I’m looking for a replacement grate for my cage as my CAG finds it amusing to bite it. It would be amazing if it was stainless steel since he...

    Hi! for my birthday I'm going to be getting mercury a new flight cage, and I fell in love with A&E's flight cages when I saw one at my local bird store.
