I've good news and annoyed news in regards to this cage.
Good: It came early! It was supposed to come on the 27th but came yesterday, so I am already getting the budgies used to it. Even though they are not supposed to have millet, I have put millet inside as a lure and Sweetie is already very interested in the cage and has started investigating it. Lemon keeps her distance like she does with everything.
Bad: There are two perches inside, but it's not separated. Here are some pictures:
Very nice Moria and I have such a boy-crush on my favorite little grey boy Sweetie

That's nice Moira . Why do you want it separated? How far are you moving (will they be in there very long)?
I'm moving from Vancouver to Montreal. It's a little over 3000 miles. They'll be in the carrier for at least 12 hours, and I was hoping to have it separate so they don't stress attack each other. But this will have to do.
Of course we can't predict how any living being will react, but typically when they're in this sort of situation they are likely to be focused more on wondering what's happening, where they are, etc. rather than acting in the more usual ways that they would when their confidence level is up. I've seen this with small birds, fish, that don't normally get along in a small temporary "moving" enclosure. Good luck!

Hi, Put a number of millet sprays around attached to the wire. As many as a half dozen. Windy city parrot carries a very nice non drug homeopathic that is very gentle and soothing like a cup of tea before bed. Look in avitech section.
some People with feather plucking birds use this to help their birds. When we travel we tie in kabobs, the original type, a cuttle bone and a manu rose. Use thes only if your birds are already used to them spoil your birds with their favorite food and lots of millet. The dishes are not good for water. If your birds are used to lixit. They have small plastic ones that can work. Get some of the self stick rolls of bandage. and wrap around the perches. I would disinfect the cage asap so it has time to dry. I believe your birds will be in the dark most of the time, so let them fill up before they leave and start feeding them in the cage asap. When we travel we get the birds in the travel cages with as many as 4 per cage at least 24 hours before so we can watch for any issues. also just before they leave, let them stretch wings so then they will be tired and hungry and ready to rest. This will also help preclude any fighting or nipping. make sure there is 2 of everything/ as many as 6 millet spray spread around interior the cage so they can have personal space if needed. I would be sure the are taken for a ride in the cage at least a couple of times, before the final day with te care set up as it will be on the final day. this will help them adjust especially if they get upset when they go to the vet. After a while birds will just settle and sleep. Dogs barking is not a good situation to travel with for a bird. A kennel of dogs is no fun to hear. give them electrolyte bottled water and request that only that water be used if replacement water is needed. Tie this and seed/millet to top of cage, if plane is delayed??? or something??? to avoid night freight, you might attach a battery powdered led light to shine in the cage when it goes dark for them. We plug a night light into the 12volt port in a car, check the travel stickey Here on TB in case, I have missed anything. Prayers for a safe passage and please let us know how the process goes.
