Do I Really Need The Largest Bird Cage I Can Afford?

Last Updated on January 27, 2022 by Mitch Rezman

We posted the picture above today on Facebook and one of our fans commented: “I sure hope this macaw doesn’t live in that tiny cage” my response may be a bit of a shock but I don’t necessarily have a problem with that.
 
The conventional wisdom is always been to get the largest bird cage you can afford for your parrot. Unfortunately, conventional wisdom is not always correct. The basic use for a birdcage is to keep the birds captive basically so it can’t get in trouble when unsupervised. But here’s the thing – the size of the cage should really be determined by the lifestyle that you develop with your bird.

Seeking Cockatiel Breeding Cages

Last Updated on January 28, 2022 by Mitch Rezman

Hi Jimmy,

 
We can offer a few suggestions to help you find suitable breeding cages for your Cockatiels and Macaws.
 
For the cockatiels, although you said you wanted six individual cages for the six breeding pair my wife take a look at this cage from HQ
  
The Bird Aviary & Stand for Finch to Conure 32 x 21 by HQ 13221 is well suited to your needs in that you could probably put 4 -6 cockatiels in this cage. The cage has breeder box doors on two sides. (more…)

Foraging Toys for Two Very Large Moluccan Cockatoos

Last Updated on January 27, 2022 by Mitch Rezman

I’m looking for foraging toys for my two very large Moluccan cockatoos. All the ones on your website seem to be for much smaller birds. Please let me know if you haven’t appropriate toys.

  Dear Lea
 
I know Moluccan cockatoos, they are very strong. It can be very difficult to find good toys for them.  
There is a new trend for Foraging Toys and I am sure it is very frustrating trying to find toys hard enough to insure your bird won’t destroy it immediately.

We do carry a nice selection of Foraging toys for birds, but ones that will hold up to all Moluccans and also other highly destructive birds like Green Wing macaws, I cannot promise that they cannot be damaged by your bird.

2mm Plastic Chain for Bird Toys Question

Last Updated on January 27, 2022 by Mitch Rezman

I’m working on a special project and wanted to know the weight capacity/tension on the 2mm plastic chain
 
Thanks
Ann D 
 
Dear Ann As we are simply a pet supply company and our plastic chain is used for bird toys, the 2 mm chain would serve parakeets and cockatiels, little birds to nibble on, hand lightweight toys, we have not had the weight test issue come up.
I took a heavy item in our store with a handle (gallon jug of cleaner weighing almost 9 lb and using an S hook dangled the jug and it did not break, but who knows if it would later. 
 
Then I tried it on a handled bag of bird food weighing 25 lb and it broke about 4 links up.

“Flying South” Bird Travel Carrier

Last Updated on May 7, 2017 by Mitch Rezman

 This product is no longer available as of 9/12/2010
Hello,
 
Just to share a cautionary story, I have had several of these carriers but they do wear out. Last week, the large zipper opened while we were out and my parrot inside dropped 180 degrees backwards and upside down. No harm done but for those who are on a bike in traffic or have noticed some wear on these zippers, a couple large safety pins or some other reinforcement is my recommendation.
 
Kind regards,
 
Suzanne and “Errol”

My Bird’s So Messy, Can You Help?

Last Updated on April 24, 2022 by Mitch Rezman

Birds in the wild crack nuts and eat fruit dropping half-eaten fruit and seeds to the ground. Season after season new trees and shrubs grow around the canopy trees the birds are living in.
 
A bird eats a fish ready to lay eggs in a large lake in Illinois in the fall. The bird flies to Indiana and poops the fish eggs out in a half acre man-made lake on a farm in Indiana.
 
The next spring the farmer is miraculously fishing on his own private lake! Now I want you to walk over to your cage, look your bird in the eye and say “hey, this is not the rain forest, trees will never sprout from the floor, fish will never propagate in your water dish, could you stop flinging your seeds and pooping in your water dish now?
