Alfie's backpack adventures

Recommended Posts

I don't have the model number but the travel cage is exactly the same- except for the bowls. I have two black plastic bowls. I wonder if it was a temporary change? Or maybe it came with plastic bowls but had too many complaints so they switched to metal? The plastic ones clip over the top of the feeder doors- so not even sure I could change mine out. I have had the cage for some years now. I still love it. The bowls are more of an annoyance than anything- just because I know Alfie could destroy them if he really wanted to!

Corkys cage is 36X24X72 and she will use every inch of her cage.

Some greys will stay in the top section at first but after time they will explore every inch.

Weather Corky is in her cage or out of her cage she likes to walk around the floor and bite your toes.

Funny you should say that. Alfie has had his Liberta Enterprise cage for many years now- easily over 7 years. He Has always preferred the top half of the cage because he has always liked being higher up. He very rarely went to the bottom of the cage. Nowadays he seems more willing to go and stand on the bottom of the cage and have a look around. There's nothing down there but I may buy some additional perches and toys just to make it a bit more interesting for him. Similarly, he's never been interested in exploring the floor. If he did go on the floor he would fly up to higher ground as soon as he could. Recently he has started exploring the floor as well... which is slightly problematic because I normally 'hide' things I don't want him to chew/throw on the floor! Might have to rethink that plan!
Funny how they change and open up, even after years of exhibiting the same behaviours. It's taken him 16 years to want to explore the floor!

This is Alfie's cage (although he has the first edition): https://www.northernparrots.com/enterprise-large-top-opening-parrot-cage-antique-prod950025/

Height - 208cm (82")
Inside Height 167cm (65.75")
Width of Cage (without seed catcher) - 102cm (40")
Total Depth (without seed catcher) - 76cm (31.75")

I got the biggest sized cage I could at the time because he has to stay in his cage whilst I'm at work.

I'm now toying with the idea of building an indoor aviary instead of a cage so he can have a floor to ceiling cage. I've got several other home improvement projects I need to complete first though, so it'll be a few years before I can think about it.

Envy the wider cage for Corky.  At the time, I had wanted the 36" wide cage, but they all had macaw wide bar spacing; and I couldn't risk my CAG getting his head stuck between the bars.  But that was in 1997 -- glad they make a 36" cage now with tighter bar spacing.

I wonder if the plastic bowl thing in the King's Cage was temporary. I bought mine in 2017, and it has metal bowls...

I just checked and I got mine back in 2014 - so I've had it for quite a while now! It still looks good as new though. :)
