7 Replies and 1295 Views building an outside cage  1295  7 Started by  maddiesharp Hi All, I am in the early stages of building a large outside cage to house a pair of large parrots, hopefully macaws. It will consist of a very large full height cage on the outside of the garage, with a cowl over the top to protect against rain and sun and a smaller cage on the inside of the garage with access gained through the nest box opening. I am considering insulating and heating the inside cage for the winter months.&160;Has anyone experience of large parrots/macaws needs from an outsi...

He is a B/L bird but I cannot talk about him yet but when I do you will be amazed! Cannot afford a new one unfortunately but really need one soon. If anyone has one to donate or sell please let me know. I am going to the 3 counties show and could collect from there if it helps. &160; Cheers.....leslsey & co

Not that easy as he has to have one with all horizontal bars because of this special needs it also can not be too high as he does some times fall. I wanted a play top as he loves playing on top of Bobbies cage. Well I ordered a Rainforest cage called Santa Marta 2. Not a play top and a bit high but it did have horizontal bars. Then I took the bottom grill and placed it at the begining of the arch to form a new top this made it possable to lea...

13 Replies and 2163 Views Cage options  2163  13 Started by  nicolapompicola Hi all, I'm considering getting a lovebird or two, and I'm considering my caging options. At the moment, I'm rather struck by the Ferplast Piano 7, but I don't know if this is a good size or not. I don't have space for one of the massive 'aviery' style cages, the space I'm thinking about putting the cage is roughly 3 feet by 2 feet. Also, this may seem like a really stupid question, but I've also been considering 'rat' cages to use, as from what I've read on the 'net they're an ok size, and I'm ...
