    Reputable Cage Vendors

    Good cages in Europe?

    Hi everyone, and thanks again for the warm welcome you gave me and Cookie :) I am looking for a new cage for him, and it is proving VERY tricky finding a decent one in Europe. He has had a Sun cage before (powder coated) and I was pretty happy with the coating, that even with his VERY chewy...

    Bonded rescue conures

    I kind of inherited a pair of green cheeks after their owner (family friend) could not keep them anymore. They have been in the same cage together since the original owner got them (3-4 years) and are now bonded. I've been training them every day for a few months now, but when it comes to cage...

    This turned out great. I took a LOT of extra time to make sure all wires that could poke were turned and totally blunted. The cleaning and efficiency of placing the whole thing on a towel (the debris passes through) and stabilizing it with a wire to my ceiling worked out great. In the...

    Best cage for Galah?

    I’m getting a new baby Gala/Rose Breasted Cockatoo and I’m not sure how big a cage I must get? I was look at the extra large corner cage by A&E, or a playtop that 30x40 or should I get a dome top? Do I need to go larger ?

    Pictures Anyone have opinions on A&E aviaries?

    I've been on the hunt for a big, beautiful new cage for Taco since I brought him home in May, and I just happened across a walk-in aviary on Kijiji for 40% off the retail price in great condition. It's 62"×62"×79" with inch-wide bar spacing, and I'm allllll over the idea of Taco having such a...

    Unsafe Cages

    Hi all, I bought this cockatiel cage from Petco. If I had to do it again I would buy a flat top cage instead so I could put a 'playground' on top and to prevent this from happening. What I found with this arched type cage is my baby's foot got caught in the junction of the bars in the last...

    Anyone else let their birds sleep outside their cages? Recently Lada prefers to curl up in her bed for the night sleeping on the night stand near me and Charlie & Emma have recently started snuggling down for the night on top of my tea spoon rack. Lately I have just been leaving them all be. The...
