There is rust on the bars so that's why I have to remove it by cleaning and the cage is dirty (forgot to clean it before putting the birds in)What I do is remove the bottom part of the cage along with the poop tray, clean it with a disinfectant wipe and wash it in the tub. I also take out all perches and toys to wash those as well. I don’t know what type of cage you have.
My two sweeties never leave their cage either. I also have 2 dogs and 2 cats who would love to get a chance at my darling birdies. They are very happy as they are. Their cage is very large and they often have short bursts of flight witin the cage. I live in Florida and during the fall and spring the doors are always open and if my darlings had free range they would fly into the lanai and probably wind up in the pool. Not all households are safe for birds except in their cages.It would be best to get another cage, even if you clean off the rust it will return, it is very sad that your birds do not get any out of the cage time, this is not good for their health.
When its time I just have to chase them to put them back because they are not hand-trainedIf your budgies have a flight cage or a large aviary then it's not necessarily that bad to keep them in their cage often, especially for their safety, but it appears the poster does not even have a cage that is the minimum requirements to keep a budgie in.
Additionally, while everyone's situation is different, every budgie owner should try and accommodate their birds as much as possible to ensure they can stretch their wings sufficiently and exercise, even if they don't leave the cage.
Not yet, I am still searching good big onesJoshua,
You are missing the whole point.
Have you replaced the cage as advised?
