    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...

Because she started out as our only pet (and no kids yet) we've always kept her in an enormous cage. (It could easily hold 4 cockatiels permanently and still be spacious). She has lots...

    Conure hates her new cage

    I need a little advice here. On Christmas we got our GCC a new, hilariously large, flight cage and she hates it! We loaded it with treats and food and brand new toys, but she doesn't want to be anywhere near it unless we're in the room. We tried putting her in it and leaving the room, but she...
