  1. I'm pretty sure it's safe, it was recommended to me by the President of our Parrot Club and I trust her not to recommend something dangerous. I got the cage set up tonight with all her perches and toys. So far she seems to be enjoying the larger space. I'll be keeping a very close eye on the painted spots though to be safe, and I'm going to double check with her vet on Monday whether she has any other recommendations. I'm keeping her smaller cage so that if I get together the funds to get the powder coat redone she has a place to stay while that happens, plus when I move later this summer it'l
  2. I've been keeping an eye out but there's not a lot of cages out there in my price range that don't need a ton of work done to them like the one I've got does. And I'm in Canada so there's no Petco here, sadly. Even the pet store I work at I can't get a good enough discount right now. Shipping on cages is huge and the cheapest I'm looking at is $500+ if I go for the most basic model, Since I've already spent $200 on this cage I'm working on I don't have enough left to buy a new cage right away, even a used one. That being said, I went out and checked on the cage today and the paint actually se
  3. So I bought a cage off someone who had kept the cage in storage for a number of years. Her bird, before she rehomed him, was definitely a bar chewer and much of the powder coating has been removed. I bought the cage for $200 before I really noticed the extent of the damage. Not only is the coating chipped away, but some rust has settled in too. Not wanting to be out the $200 I did some research into my options and found the first choice would be to have the whole cage re-powder-coated. But after calling around and receiving quotes of $200+ I decided to check into some alternate options. Upon c
  4. Thank you for the kind words! I'm very excited about having Auri in my life to stay.
  5. Hello and thank you for letting me join! My name is Kelsie, I'm 26 years old and I just brought my grey home a little over a week ago, but I've known her almost her whole life. Here's the backstory: I work in a pet store, and occasionally we get in large parrots. In the seven years I've worked there I've seen three other baby greys come through the store. I can remember each one very distinctly. Echo, Smokey, and Ash. The only one of those that I still have tabs on is Echo, she's in her second home now but is thriving there and I'm positive they will be her forever home. Smokey and Ash h
