    Most expensive thing your birds destroyed

    What’s the most damage, wallet or physically, that your bird has done? I know some tend to be quite the troublemakers :lol:

    Bird mess photos (Warning ~ Graphic)

    Inspired by this thread and today's clean-up before welcoming a visitor, I thought the topic of messes deserved its own thread in the spirit of this other thing. I hope it serves as a space to commiserate with our fellow bird guardians, see some lovely birds and their messes, and perhaps learn...

    How to clean up after hand feeding? Worse than an infant!

    My new little nerd (can’t figure out a name! Please offer suggestions ) is nearly weaned - he’s eating formula twice a day and nibbling on food-food otherwise. But good heavens, the MESS after feeding. How do y’all clean your babies? I’ve tried using a paper towel, and a damp paper towel, and...

    Advice Appriciated! :D

    Hi! My new budgie, Hane (ha-nae) is a very messy eater. I keep him in my bedroom which is carpeted and now it is covered in bird food. I would like to vacuum up the mess he makes... except that he's terrified of the vacuum. I would move him out of the room prior to cleaning but I'm worried that...

    Easiest ways to stay on top of poopy messes around play areas.

    Hi Bird lovers!! I was just wondering how everyone stays on top of the bird poop issue. I've tried laying down papers but when Blu flaps his wings, they float around the room and don't stay put. I also have a Great Dane who loves to get under his tree and "forage" through all of Blu's food...
