Dear Parrots magazine,

Tidy is easy

I recently visited a friend of a friend who had a Hahn’s Macaw, which was kept in their main living room. But I was surprised to see the bottom of his cage was very dirty with debris and droppings, and clearly this elderly couple had a problem keeping the cage clean.

With my Blue-front, I use several sheets of newspaper laid in the bottom of the cage (sometimes I trim with scissors) and, at least once, or maybe twice a day, I just roll up the sheet and remove the mess. I did suggest this to the elderly couple and as far as I know they are now using newspaper. If you don’t have any newspapers yourself ask friends and neighbours, as I do, and keep a large pile handy, which I find extremely practical in keeping my cage bottom clean.
