A 16 Oz Lixit GB Glass Water Bottle Set with a Medium Tip is fine for Quakers or even the Snapple Water Bottle Kit in Medium.
New (solo) Quaker parrot bird cage question
I need your professional opinion.
I don’t have a lot of money to spend, but I want something that will make a Quaker happy.
I need a bird cage.
I am limited on space in my house, but I don’t want to put it in a cage that is too small.
I can get rid of furniture.
I have seen some smaller bird cages that are built like it will house a gorilla.
I don’t need (nor do I want) one like that. They usually have very narrow doors.
I would like one that is 23w x 19d x 30t like Ezra’s.
His is a scalloped top that opens up and has a very large door.
It is the thinner wire with plastic bottom and slide out tray.
What do you have along those lines? Thanks, I appreciate your help! 🙂
Dear Cindy –
These are welded one piece all metal cages, they have drop down landing doors that the birds like to sit on. They are made in the USA too.
Other suitable cages will be higher.
Hope this helps.
This one looks like Ezra’s only his is like a regular bird cage, not one on steroids.
The HQ bird cage and stand (above) is a nice cage for the money. They are sturdy and will last a long, long time.
It would ship out of Florida direct to you.
The cage you have Ezra in now is not as heavy duty, how big is it. Left to right?
A good Quaker cage should be NO smaller than 20 x 20 and that is really small still.
How many readers of this blog are familiar with Chicago’s feral Quakers?
Yep, birds that survive winter after winter living close to lake Michigan, by the museum of Science and Industry
I just lost one of a pair of quakers.
The female is left and is shreiking and looking for her brother.
I am wondering if I should get another companion for her (I work during the day) so as not to stress her loneliness.
Good idea or not?
I am grief stricken and know she is as well.
Hello – I really enjoy your e:mails and am always interested in the things I learn, or the laughs I get.
One thing, they are never boring.
Sometimes I see something I’d love to share with my bird club. I
have forwarded some stories to friends, but I just became editor of the MidAmerican Cage Bird Society (MACBS) and want to know if I could occasionally reprint an article?
I would use you as the source of the information and provide a link to your site.
Our bird club is located in Des Moines, IA although members live throughout the state.
I could even contact you for permission for specific articles.
Best Regards, Debra S
