How to build a comfortable cage set up for small parrots

First: I don’t like the word “CAGE” – it sounds ugly and heartless for me. Therefore I tried to give my birds a natural home – a “villa rusticana” :-))) I arranged the cage in this way because my eldest Linnie Moritz was suffering from arthritis. Now he could reach everything by climbing, what was much more comfortable for him than to fly for a short distance and to have a hard landing. February 2010 Moritz died in the age of twelve. I did not change the decoration, because all my birds love their “villa rusticana” very much. They enjoy the corky plates and the plants, they like to climb, gnaw and nibble – what is a very good activity. Because of my experience I think it is a good decision, if all bird holders build an animal-fair bird cage for their pet birds. How does it work? Please do it without plastics! Parrots and parakeets prefer to climb and gnaw, please use only natural materials such as cork and wood to protect their feets. Wooden branches and perches, plates and caves of cork and some innocuous plants – it’s so easy to “upgrade” a cage to a home! Try it! Your birds will love it too! Good luck! ———————————————————————————————- Many thanks to my beautiful actors Sammy (*2001) & Charlie (*2005) Directed 2010 in Germany by Monika, the Linnie-Mum
