Birds and bird owners alike can benefit by
employing multiple cages in their homes.
When considering your bird's travel,
isolation, privacy, and room-to-room needs, it can
be very advantageous to complement your main
cage with alternate-use cages.
Have birds will travel
Taking your bird to visit family? Or does your bird like to spend
time with you while you're on the computer or folding laundry?
In travel situations, having a smaller, yet familiar, cage alleviates
the stress of being in unfamiliar surroundings. At home, it isn't
always practical to move your bird's large cage into another
room or up a flight of stairs. Keeping another cage ready in a
frequently visited room lets you keep your bird by your side.
Multiple bird homes
Do you have two or more birds? Smaller, inexpensive cages make
excellent isolation homes should your bird become sick or unruly
and need to be separated from her companions. Plus, a second
cage helps keep breeding on your schedule, not on your bird's.
Big birds, small spaces
Bird lovers come in all shapes and sizes – as do their homes.
Smaller, second cages are ideal if your home's size forces you to
keep your bird's larger main cage near the television. Late night
viewing can get in the way of your bird's sleep patterns, but a
sleeper cage placed in a quiet spot means both you and your bird
can get some needed relaxation.
