    Cage Placed Near Window?

    I'd like to know everyone's opinions about cages being placed by windows. I've done some research into it, and it mostly seems negative, but whenever I put Rio by a window he seems infinitely happier. He gets super puffy and relaxed while sitting in the sun, and seems to really enjoy watching...

    Ro is fully flighted now and knows how to fly so I was looking to upgrade her cage. However, even though she has the space to flap around now, she doesn't. Her cage is 14 inches deep, 31 inches long and 52 inches high. She seems very content in it and hasn't had any stress or behaviour problems...

    Cage cleaning..

    Hi! I'm sorry if this isn't the right place to post this type of subject.. I have a cockatiel and recently a half a year ago switched him to a larger cage that wheels around. Cleaning it was always easy since I would wheel it outside, hose it down, and let it sun dry. I would soak all of his...

    SS Cage Shopping! (Expandable Habitats?)

    As I mentioned in my welcome post, my Congo African grey needs a new cage. Her current one is in no way unsafe or unusable, I am just very tired of the difficulty cleaning it (it's a SS and aluminum CustomCages.com/Cages by Design Hybrid style). The aluminum tracks are difficult to clean, and...
