Caring for Cocky Boy the Galah

I believe I posted this link before in the past. Maybe it could become a sticky? I find myself referring to it off and on for Java. I hope it can help someone else.

I have only read a third of the article, but I´m a little confused about the cage.

¨I wouldn’t normally recommend a cage with horizontal bars for a flighted bird (can damage feathers), but for Cocky Boy it was perfect. ¨
I´m not sure why horizontal bars would be bad for a flighted bird, they like to climb too as well as fly around their cage.

But then, two pictures later, the pictures show Cocky Boy in his new very nice set up, but with vertical bars.

I'm confused about the bars as well. I prefer cages with more horizontal bars because climbing with their beak is such a common thing.

Yeah I read a bit of it the other day and thought it was a little confusing and not the best resource but it is helpful to some degree.
