Default My Bird Recently Passed Away, Can I Put another bird in the old cage if I clean it?

Can I put another bird into the deceased bird's cage?

My Jupiter died a month ago, and I've been meaning to buy a larger cage for my parrotlet, Jupiter had a mansion compared to my parrotlet's current cage. But my keet Jupiter died of some sort of illness. I know he was sick even though when I took him to the vet they said he looked healthy. Grant it it was a normal vet and not an avian one.

I had both the cages in my room, but when Jupiter started to show signs of getting sick, I moved Oliver my parrotlet to another room just in case. It's been about a month after Jupiter passed, and I was wondering if I could move Oliver to Jupiter's old cage without worry of "left over sickness"?

But I was wondering if I could bleach or use hydrogen peroxide on the old cage and when it was dry and clean put my parrotlet inside?

I am sorry to hear of Jupiter's passing. I would clean the cage thoroughly with vinegar and water before putting your parrotlet in there. I am not knowledgeable about parrotlets, so I hope you are putting the bird in a cage of the proper size with the proper bar spacing.

Good luck!

You can clean the cage with very dilute bleach and then thoroughly rinse it off and let it dry to ensure everything is killed. Make sure you remove any poop before wiping down with the bleach though, as bleach will not work with any organic material present

If you use the bleach solution on the cage, make sure you rinse it over and over again very thoroughly and then sit it outdoors in the sun until it is 100% dried.

The cage will be fine to use for your parrotlet once it has been completely cleaned and disinfected.
