My Triton Cockatoo currently sleeps in a 36"L x 22"W x 24"H dog carrier crate. I have 2 perches in there for her and 2 food bowls. It is quite spacious for her and she has no problem walking into it at night. The problem is, she has nearly chewed through the entire bottom plastic tray and I don't want to buy a replacement tray since those are expensive and I would rather buy a newer, smaller, "real" cage. Ideally, I would like this smaller parrot cage to just sit on the floor so my cockatoo can just walk into the cage on her own (She is still not stick trained and I cannot touch her or she bites). Do any of you use a smaller cage meant for smaller parrots with something like a 3/4" bar spacing? Or do you have other suggestions? Thanks.
I have a table top cage for Cassie that could easily serve as a sleep cage and travel cage. I have used this cage when we go to visit or to family events and to the sitters. It's not huge and I would never use it as a full time cage but it's great for trips, sleeping eating dinner with the family and going out in the yard. It fits in the back seat of my full size car. It's similar to this one on Ebay http://www.ebay.com/itm/Prevue-Hendryx-M...=item20fb089946
Sleeper cage has been working out great these past few months. I put the sleeper cage on the floor near her main cage so she could look at it for a few days before I officially made it her sleeper cage. The cage is on the floor, and she walks in and out of the cage with no problem.
I haven't used a sleeper cage.. Does it help in some way to put them to bed in a different cage? Sometimes Angel does not always go to bed when we put her to bed ( usually around 9pm) and I wonder if a separate smaller sleeper cage would help ?
