Yes I know I'm posting after long time. Rio is doing well though But my aunt isn't and is in hospital so I was busy with my work and going to hospital and sometimes staying with her etc. But now I'm ordering food for my birbs as its about to be finished. I've thought to buy F10 that I clicked on the link what was available on this thread: https://talkbudgies.com/housing-budgi...ird-cages.html I've read that the reviewer said on there that on that product description it says its bird and animal safe (non toxic) but when he received that bottle on the bottle's instruction it states that it is toxic so that's why he retured that product. But now it made me worries to buy that or buy different F10 product? Also back to my question which is why I'm posting this is that do you guys clean your new cage before putting/transfering your birds into their new home? If yes, then how? As when I received new cage it had some powder/dust on the wrapping and inside the wrapping like dust was on top of the cage parts and I don't feel safe transferring my little ones there before good cleaning and making sure that its safe for them. Please help. P.s. I'm just so confuse what to order for them (like what new toys and perches should I buy first that are necessary for them as its huge cage especially the perches so that way they can easily fly around but have enough perches to avoid bumble feet and cover the distance from one side of the cage to another). would be much appreciated too if possible. Thank you so much. We (my little ones) too appreciate your help to make their new home safe for them.
Off topic: Please pray for my aunt too. She has cancer not sure what kind yet but it has spread all over her abdomin and chest etc. Your prayers and love means a lot to us.
@FaeryBee How would I know if the vinegar I find is white vinegar? The one I see everywhere is 50% distilled white vinegar but not sure if that's the one you're talking about. Thanks though And yeah I've read that post/thread before too but I was just asking like you know when members share the pictures of the toys/perches that their bird loves so that way we all find something new that our bird might like.
I've just bought some swings so should I clean/wipe them with Distilled White Vinegar (it has 5% Acidity though)? If yes, should I add water in the bowl to add vinegar in it too? If yes, how much water and that vinegar should I mix in the bowl to wipe new toys with it? And after how long being dry they can be hang in their cage so they can use them? Please response asap so I would know all this before I leave to work.
There is no need to dilute the vinegar before using it.
You can use it full-strength.
There is no need to rinse the items after using the vinegar. It will not hurt your budgies.
Once the item(s) are dry, they can be put directly into your birds' cage(s).
