Default Upsetting surprise with (hopefully) happy ending

Does the cage have a slide-out tray for cleaning?

No, you but you can remove the top part of the cage to clean the tray
Here's what I found when I got the cage home (Sorry for badly oriented photos, photobucket wont let me edit right now for some reason)...



Underneath...



Overall about an inch of seeds and poop covered by about 3-4 inches of shredded paper scraps.

Underneath everything else, I found this...



Neither of the birds have a hint of green anywhere on them...

Now here's the real kicker... Remember how I asked him whether the tray slid out?



Yes... That's the tray, in the bottom of the cage, partially-slid out and showing that there is even a handle and a slot across the length of the cage bottom for it...

And this was an adult with a family of 3 kids who bought his birds to start breeding...

Very glad I picked up these little ones, and just crossing my fingers they don't have any underlying health problems from living with such a mess.

Yes, sorry it was a recent adoption. Two birds + cage and entire setup. I didn't get it from anyone here. I had another thread about me finding the opportunity to adopt a pair, and yes, this was the cage they came in. Probably should have introduced with that. -_-

Glad you were able to save the little fellows, I'm sure they'll be much happier with you!

I'm glad you have now the pair.
You will be giving them the love and care they deserve and providing them with the safe and loving forever home of their budgie dreams!

I am so glad you have taken over the care and responsibility of these budgies, it doesn't sound as though they were in the best of care .

That's so sad I'm really glad they have been given a chance of a proper home.

Oh my goodness! That's a terrible cage to be kept in, I'm so glad you rescued them, they were definitely not in the right hands It makes me laugh they said it didn't have a tray, I mean really its rather obvious it has! I just found your other thread those two are gorgeous!

The girl's still a bit on the nervous side, but the boy's starting to mellow out a lot and taking some interest when I come around and talk to them. Seems to like their fresh cuttlebone, mineral stone (which they didn't have before), CLEAN toys... Now just to get them used to fruits and veg.
