Well this was a longer road than originally planned, but Marii's new cage is (mostly) finished at last!

It's the 4'x2'x4' reptile enclosure by Zen Habitats. I would not under any circumstances recommend this for a parrot of any kind, but it promises to solve all kinds of problems for my weird son. :strlng1:

With doors:


Without doors:





:broke: ...I'll be adding lights, curtains, and some custom reusable cage liners whenever my wallet stops crying.

Very nice, you put a lot of effort into the design.
I bet Marii is going to enjoy it.

Now I just gotta convince him that it's a good place to be. :lol:
Warning for bugs in the video.

I swear it's not that dark. My video camera is just very old and records poorly. :dead:

Very cool! I'm sure a sack full of crickets delivered to his front door helps him think positively of his new digs, lol!

Does Marii like strawberries?

Absolutely. He's never met food he hasn't liked.
We have a flock of starlings that have found my strawberry patch and they go to town on the whole lot every morning and evening. I am going to have to cover a section of them so we at least get some of them, I can not believe how much they love them.

My sympathies. They really are such awful pests. :hilarious: Mine included, of course. Gotta love that chutzpah.

That looks like tape stuck on glass, presumably to stop Marii from flying into it. The top looks like fine mesh for ventilation.

Looks like a great cage, @Feather!

Ah. I really need to look at things more closely. My first thought was that he could easily escape since I thought they were metal sheet things. My bad.
