    Soundproof Cage

    I have a couple tiels and when I want to spend one-on-one time with one and take it out of the room, they both start screaming for eachother. It is incredibly loud and highly distracting when they are trying to learn tricks and things. They aren't even good friends; they both have to live in...

    plastic mesh for cage for budgerigars

    this is my old thread. Since that thread I decided to wait a bit, and decide some time latter because It wasn't handy, the parrots already had a pretty good cage. Some time ago I got an idea of using a plastic mesh (polythene) instead of metal wire mesh. The cage will be for two budgerigars...

    Is this the right F10?

    I recently received a new stainless steel cage for my CAG. It’s a bit dirty, so I wanted to give it a real deep clean. I saw that f10 was safe for birds, but when watching videos or searching forums, I only see the F10 listed for Avain usage specifically. I was wondering if this one is the same...

    Painted New Cage

    Ok, this might just be me freaking out and being too much of a worry wart but I want to hear from others! I found a cage at my local pet store that was used, it’s a California cage but the outside was chipping and sections were rusting. They sold it to me for $100 and I thought this was a steal...

    Pet sitting Budgies

    I was just wondering if anyone has recommendations for a cage for two budgies that I can bring to someone that is small enough to be easy to move around from house to house but big enough so that the budgies aren’t cramped. It won’t be their permanent home, I am just planning on leaving my birds...

    Stainless steel cages

    Hey, I’m new to this sitejust wondering if stainless steel cages are worth it? How long has yours lasted? where I am (Canada) they are double the price of a regular cage. And in general everything parrot related is hard to come by here. Everything stainless steel I’ve ever owned has rusted...

    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...

    How do I get my birds to adjust to a cage?

    So I've had my two cockatiels, both male, for over a year now. Jo is around 16 months and Niel has just turned a year old. Thing is, family agreed to let them roam freely around the house at first (and a big cage was way too expensive for me to afford then) so aside from bedtime, they've been...

    Why is my lovebird panicking all off a sudden?

    My lovebird (male, about 4.5 months old) has been acting weird lately. He's acting very paranoid and panicky in his cage when it is bed time (online time when he is in his cage). First I thought it was Night fright, but it also happens when it's still light. This has been going on for like 2...

    Recommended cages?

    I'm currently looking for a cage for a canary that I'm getting in a month or so, and am wondering if anyone has any recommendations. Length can be up to 75cm, depth 45cm, and no more than 150cm high. I'm placing the cage on a shelf, so I would prefer not to have a built-in rolling stand. Would...

    Budgie has to stay in her transport cage for a week

    So, today I brought one of my budgerigars to the vet, because there was a scar on her large growth on the abdomen. They prescribed an antibiotic ointment and feverfew extract and gave me a plastic cone-like thing to put around her head. They also told me to keep her in the transport cage for a...

    Cage Bar Size

    Hi! I'm looking for a big cage for an African Grey. But all the big cages I find have a 1-inch bar spacing (I want a 3/4 bar spacing). I have been looking at several places like A&E and Kings Cages but have yet to find one. Please if you have any recommendations let me know. Thanks!
