I doubt driftwood a good idea it will have absorbed salt. willow, hazel, apple are good to use. I tend to use hazel as here there is plenty around and scrub them then fit in cages in varying thickness, also made a table top stand for the parrots too, in the past have made floor standing ones.

Hi guys not been here for a while but I have just learned from a book I bought about CAG's and in the book they touch on parrot cages. The cage I have at the moment is 2ft wide and 21/2ft depth and 4ft high, they have suggested that I should have a cage 3ft X 4ft X 6ft.
I have not received my baby CAG yet (due in March I hope) but I am getting everything ready. Should I be looking for a bigger cage than I have or do you think this is sufficient.

I'd recommend the bigger cage with lots of natural branches for the baby to chew on and scramble about on. Hopefully the baby will also be spending the majority of its time outside the cage once it has settled in.

You could maybe keep the smaller cage too, perhaps in another room, as greys like to have plenty spaces that are safe to explore and/or take a nap in.

You will find that the baby hates to be alone - so the more options it has to be near you, the merrier.

Hi OLI , yes I was thinking on the same lines as you. I will probably look for a bigger cage and also keep the one I already have to put in another room. So now I have to look for other cages , the ones I have seen are in the 100's so maybe it will have to wait a little while until I can afford it/, but thank you for your advice...…… Steve

Sometimes we do get members selling their cages but none coming up at the moment.
Have you tried your local FB page, although do be careful when buying a second hand cage.
Maybe members can advise on which reasonably priced ones they have.

An alternative could be to have one made to your requirements, for example by Rosemead Aviaries. Worth che king their website.

Hi guys not been on for a while but I have just been reading about air-purifiers! Is this a necessity..? I have read a lot about the dust the birds emit but do I have to have a purifier and what purpose is it for?

Greys loose a lot of dander and the dust gets in the air and will settle every place, the purifier helps keep the dust under control and also cleans the air in the room, you may be surprised just how much dust or dirt is floating about in the air even with out a bird living in the room. they are just as good for us as they are for our birds.
