    Baby eclectus cage?

    So ive read or watched somewhere that when you first get a baby birdy you shoud keep them in a smaller flat topped cage, so im thinking although i have a great huge cage for when hes older, that ill keep him in a “large rabbit cage” with a towel on the bottom so that he feel more secure would...

    Flightless Budgie climbing too high?

    Hi all, I posted earlier about my 5 week old budgie who is currently flightless. I was worried, but after the group analysed her wings we realised she is not clipped or plucked, she’s merely very young and hasn’t yet learnt to fly. She is showing pre flight behaviour like grabbing perches and...

    New toys for Gila!

    After a bit, all the toys and bits and bobs I ordered for Gila are here at last! She didn't make any fuss while I was placing things in, and has been meeting her new toys. The stairs are too big to fit in that cage :( Really need a new one, this is getting out of hand quite fast. When I...

    Geo bird cage

    Hi! I've heard a lot about these Geo bird cages lately. I've seen a lot of good reviews and was wondering how many budgies (I have three) would live comfortably in one. Does anyone know anything about it? Thanks!

    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...

    Update on Gila!

    Hello everyone, I bring you a little update on my baby, and with it some questions! I think this is the 4th day maybe? I have kept reading and keeping her beside me while I'm playing videogames, she is still quite lively in the morning, and loves singing and chirping, though the days in the...

    First Time Bird Owner

    Hi all! I'm a first time bird owner with a hand-tame lutino cockatiel called Bambino, coming up to 6 months old. He bonded with me really quickly and now loves my partner too. We decided not to have him clipped and he's really good at flying now, he can be a bit mischievous but he's got a...

    Hi! I was thinking about a idea where you can corner off part of a room with some type of material for a cage instead of getting a moveable cage. Is this a actual concept?

    Cage Help

    Hello, In a few months I'll be adopting another cockatiel to keep my current boy company. Right now I have him in a L18xW18xH30 cage. I need recommendations for a larger cage that will comfortably house two cockatiels, as I do need to put them away when I go to work. A flat-topped cage or a...

    Is my cockatiel cage size ok???

    Hello, I order 2 cages for my cockatiels. I give cage size to the cage maker 24"x24"x24" for 1 pair cockatiels. But unfortunately, the cage maker make my cage 24"x24"x18". They make height 18". He can't take it return and not return my money. I heard international cage size for cockatiel minimum...

    Is this budgie cage too small?

    Hi, I was wondering whether this cage (Montana Cages Madeira - I antique) is big enough for 3 budgies? It’s the one I currently have but I’m not sure if I should get a larger one. Thank you!

    This cage for a Senegal?

    Hey Everybody, I recently cleaned down an old cage that I got used and would like to use it for a Senegal parrot. However, it seems kinda tight. The dimensions are 18W x 18D X 32H. If this is deemed too small, I will opt for a larger one. It looks fine, but most sources ask for bigger...

    Cage size for Rock Pebbler or Indian Ringneck

    I got Rock pebbler parrot home yesterday. It's 3.5 months old and already little bigger than cockatiel in size. I guess might be around 12-13 inches now. He is in a taller cage right now which is more meant to be for tiels. This guy I know grows upto 16.5 inches which is little longer than IRN...

    Budgie doesn't like coming out of cage

    I've had my budgie Koolaid for 2 years now. I got him from a petco which I know is bad but I didn't know that at the time. He is completely hand tame. He hates coming out of his cage. He will sit on the perch I bought him for 10 minutes and fly right back into his cage. I keep him in my room...

    What is your opinion on keeping parrot out during the day alone?

    My green cheek conure and I will be moving to an apartment fairly soon. I’m a student and, after spending the last year in a dorm with my conure, we’ve had a good time! He’s out for most of the day, but now that I’m moving to a place I’ll have my room, I’d like him to be out as much as...
