    Budgies in their new cage, but only on the sides of it

    Hi, So I transferred my two budgies into their new flight cage, and surprisingly it went smoothly. They aren’t scared at all and eat their treats when offered, preen, sleep and slightly move around. The only problem is that they’re doing all of this on the sides of the cage. Once they hopped...

    My cockatiel

    Two weeks ago I got a cockatiel. She is hand tame and loves eating millet! However whenever I open the cage door to let her out she just looks out and goes back in her cage. I haven’t forced her out in any way but I’m not sure what to do now.

    budgie natural branches! help.

    Hello everybody. Today I went outside and got some branches from trees nearby. I didn't think much about it so I did not really take a pic of the trees to identify them. I removed the branches bark, then washed them with vinegar and hand soap just in case. Then, because my mom wouldn't let me...

    New A&E cage!

    I finally decided on a new cage for Moki..I love it...the 20x20 All Living Things Skyskraper from PetSmart.com she started out in was definitely too small. She was extremely happy with it..immediately climbed to the top perch and hung almost upside down and spread her wings for all to see LOL...

    Is this cage good?

    Hi! I'm hoping to be the proud friend of a quaker soon, and want to make sure that I'm giving him/her enough room to fly around and play when she's in the cage. Would this cage work? I'd shut the doors with clothes pins, I think, but I'm not sure if that'd be enough. It's 37 x 23 x 60 inches...

    Sleeper Cage problems

    My CAG is a plucker, and it doesn't help that he's been very hormonal lately--regurgitated on my sister a couple of times. We're currently working on trying to fix his sleep schedule and diet (he is a VERY picky eater). I recently got a travel carrier to be his sleeper cage, however, he really...

    How's my cage setup?

    Can I have some advice on my cage setup for my cockatiel, Aries? When we're home, he's basically out of the cage the whole time unless he's ready to go to bed. (I am going to be getting him a larger cage soon!) Any advice? Praise? Constructive criticism? Thanks birb fam!

    Hi guys, I would like some advice on lining for the bottom of the cage. Ive always had corncob litter in the bottom of Bucks cage and that was never an issue. I did the same with Skittles but she plays with the litter as if she thinks its pellets maybe. Im worried a bit as this is pretty solid...

    Pictures Which cage for green cheek conure?

    I’m looking into getting a green cheek conure pretty soon but I don’t know what cage would be best. I heard flight cages are a good choice but the thing that worries me about the flight cages is the thinness of the bars. I was wondering if GCC’s can break the bars? These are the two cages I have...

    I’m adopting a dove soon, and I have a flight cage for it. I’d like to see pictures of your cage setups. No aviaries, just cages. :) Thanks in advance! (Ooh, if you’d like to leave Amazon links to your cage supplies that’d be great!)
