Default Important Question about Krystal & Winter

Hi, I have a question about cleaning the cage.

Since I have just gotten them they are not fully trusting of my hand yet, so how do I take them out of the cage to clean the cage? Any advice would be helpful.

I didn't know which thread to put this in so if it needs to be moved please do so.

There's no reason you should have to remove them to clean the cage to an acceptable standard with them in. The tray will be the main thing, which you do daily. Any toys or perches can be removed one at a time, slowly and carefully, cleaned and returned- one by one.
Then wipe over any bars.

Therm has given you excellent advice.

I simply take paper towels, dampen them with white vinegar and clean off any toys and perches right in the cage.

I only remove toys and perches for a deep cleaning if necessary.

Because they are wiped down on a daily basis, that doesn't have to happen too often. ;D

I do the same as Therm and Faery Bee for a few days at a time but once a week move Peta to a small travel cage to have a more thorough wash & disinfect of everything. That would be tricky with Peta left in the cage, as she is so nosey & gets seriously in the way

The way I transfer her is to make sure she sees me putting some millet berries and spinach leaves into the travel cage. Then I put both doors together & open both. The lure of the treat in the travel cage makes it no problem-- she hops in.

With the reverse, it's the same procedure, visibly & obviously putting treats where she will want to go to find them. There is usually no bird- handling involved at the transfer, unless it coincides with out of cage free time.

My intention is always to check on her weight while she's in the smaller cage but I often forget . I would normally weigh the cage with her in it, then again when empty, then do the maths...that's the most difficult bit!

This is how I transfer older (and not tame) birds into travelling cages and back. Maths is not the most difficult bit....it's the only difficult bit I don't do sums
