Hi all !
I recently had one of my chicks returned to me (She's two years old now) because the little girl who wanted her so badly now has no interest in her.
Anyhow, her father dropped her off to me this week, and included her cage and toys and food. She's been well taken care of, and is still tame but a bit nippy because of her hormones at the moment.
I was not a fan of the cage she came in, so I purchased a new Vision cage. My only concern/question is about cleaning it. It does not have a slide out tray on the bottom. Instead, you have to remove the entire bottom half of the cage to clean it out.
This causes the problem of having a wide open cage that a bird can easily escape from, and this can become an even bigger problem if you don't have a hand tame bird.
As far as I can tell, to clean it, I will need to remove the top half of the cage and place it on a table or counter while the bottom half is being cleaned. Again, if you don't happen to have a hand tame bird, how to you manage this without your bird escaping?
I really wanted to recommend this cage to my clients who are about to purchase chicks from me, but this one downside is my only concern.
