A blog about my beautiful budgies.

Cage portfolio

Here is an update on the current Cage Portfolio:

  • Travel Cage – Tiny enclosure for transportation with no room to swing a cat.  Only used twice.
  • Hospital Cage – Cozy dwelling, purpose built for hospitalisation.  Can be converted into a mobile home.
  • The Ferplast – Modern style home.  Horizontal bar styling.  Light & airy with flat top ideal for roof play area.  In need of refurbishment.
  • The Manor – Non-mini Manor, reminiscent of San Remo architecture. Large reception area that houses food and water.  Basement ideal for eating poop. Trendy loft area converted into large open plan roosting area.
  • The Folding Cage – New build.  Dark decor.  Modern & portable design.  Stylish doors that slide upwards.

The Folding cage is the latest acquisition.  It is to replace the Ferplast that is showing signs of wear & tear, particularly on the bars.  The Ferplast was the Puddings’ first home.  They then upgraded to the Manor.  The Toyboys spent their quarantine days in the Ferplast.  Once both puddings & toyboys were settled into the Manor, I planned to dismantle the Ferplast but keep it as a spare.  The reality is that it has been in constant use as a play area, chill out area, temporary naughty-step prison, separation/cool down space.

    Folding cage looks interesting. How big is it and where did you get it? 🙂

    I was thinking of getting one of those travel cages in case I need to take the boyz to Mr Vet, rather than Ian’s old cage. Do you think it’s worth it, Sweetpea, or are they too flimsy/not big enough for two boyz?

      I think the “hospital” cage would be more suitable for transporting the boyz. Sod’s Law will mean that if you get one, you will never need use it (fingers crossed). Yes, the small cages are flimsy & I am paranoid about the bottom falling off. However, I have a plastic box that I use to put the cage in for transporting. In fact, I measured the box & bought the cage to fit it! That way, I carry the sturdy box, rather than the cage (if you know what I mean) plus it’s easier to put a seatbelt around a box rather than a flimsy cage.

    Is it an actual ‘hospital’ cage, as it were, or a small Ferplast cage good for ill budgies? In which case Ian’s old cage might do the trick, so long as I cleaned it up a bit!

    Yes, it’s just a small cage…. the sort of cage that should only be sold for transportation/hospital use, not for permanent living. If Ian’s old cage is small enough to carry to/from car for emergency vet visit, then go for it! It’s good to have these things in place just in case, & then hopefully the need will never arise.

      I really must get Ian’s cage out of the shed and clean it up, in case I decide to take them to Mr Vet for a pedicure!
