Default Winston's home

Hello!

I am fairly new to the forum and budgies!

I have posted some photos of my sweet Winston along with a photo of his home. I was wondering if anyone thought I had too many things in there. He is able to move around just fine, and seems to really love his home. I would love some feedback on how to make it the best living space I can provide.

Thanks!

Winston is beautiful!

It looks like he has a nice variety of toys in his home! I would replace most of the plastic perches with natural branch perches, to ensure his feet stay healthy.

Also, I would ensure that all rope fringes are cut off the toys so that he doesn't chew on them--ingestion of fibres can cause crop impaction

If I may ask, what's the blue sphere thing in his cage?

What a cutie!

Thanks for the advice!! It really helps!

The blue thing is supposed to be a bird bath, but he seems to really like just hanging out in there without any water in it.

You're very welcome

It's very cute that he likes hanging out in his bathhouse

However, I would remove it and put it in a few times a week with water in it, or even attach it outside the cage so he can visit his bath during out of cage time. The reason I would is so that there's more space for toys, and also, it's usually not recommended to have closed huts or houses in any budgie cage--even males can be affected by the similarity to a nest box.

Aww how cute Little Winston is adorable

I agree with Starlingwing's excellent advice and I strongly recommend removing the rope toys

I fully agree with the advice given. As for the birdie bath, due to its size and to have a better control during bath time (for overall safety reasons), it would be best to remove it and use the birdie bath during out of cage time. To securely place it on top of the cage (if possible) or attached on the bars outside the cage or on a play area.

The link aluz provided will give you good advice with regard to what is necessary to have in Winston's cage.

I agree with removing the bath and suggest you replace the plastic perches with natural wood. (not dowel perches)
Recommended perches are shown in the link.

Is Winston on a swing in his cage -- it's very hard to see...
Most budgies love swings.
