    Cage modification?

    our old cage had a grill, but to be honest I covered it in paper as the girl was just a pain to clean, then change the paper daily or as it gets soiled, same as above I put 2/3 layers on and just lift the top layer when its dirty. his new cage doesn't have a grill, so paper, change that daily...

    App called Seek

    I hope it works, I downloaded an app called “picture this” I tried it loads of times but the downside is I don’t actually know if it’s right or not. I was taking pics of trees on a dog walk, then taking the same pics on the way back and it seemed to work well. Again it does plants and flowers...
