The birds say not to mind the mess, today is cage cleaning day. lol
So first I built the frame, I used some filler as well just to fill the screws in so I could paint over them.
then time to seal and paint.
Once the painting was all done it was time to put the netting up. I decided to use a plastic material, it’s meant as deer fencing, but I used it on our Catio so I figured it’d work perfect for this project, and it did.
Once the cage was finished I moved onto a tray for the inside, for that section unfortunately I didn’t take pictures at that stage. I designed this tray to stay inside the cage, I just preferred that, using a corrugated plastic and sealed the seams with caulk.
For cleaning I just take the flock out and put them on their perch while I clean it and just use a vinegar water solution to clean it up.
Completely in love with this cage set up; Mo and Luna definitely seem very pleased with it as well.
Mo was our first budgie we adopted a few months back, he was very nervous when we first got him.
He is roughly two years old and had never been out of his cage his WHOLE life.
It took some time and working with him; after speaking to some feathery friends online we had decided to clip his wings just for safety and to help with training and bonding with him the first little while. We found that it made a huge difference in being able to train him to step up and not be intimidated by hands. We are now happy to announce that he steps up fairly comfortably, however, there is still a long way to go for him to be completely confidant, but he is doing amazing.
Luna is our recent adopted buddy, she is only 6 months old and is very friendly.
Shes already learning to step up and is very comfortable hanging out with us, for short periods, of course. We just brought her home the other day so I’m amazed at how quickly she’s warming up to us.
Can’t wait to share their silly stories with you guys!
Oh my goodness it’s been too long and we’ve missed you guys SO much! We’re glad to be back and have SO many updates and stories to share, so much has been happening the last few months; we can’t wait to share it with you all ❤
