This is the problem we face Justice , knowledge is a powerful thing but we have nothing to fear in our pet stores as knowledge is non existant

Oh no that doesnt look nice.
I hope that doesnt Happen to Isabelle before payday.
ATM she is in the cage she came in, Ive got sandpaper on the bottom and there are two dowel and two plastic perchs as well.
I get paid next Friday and I plan to get her a bigger cage with lots of awesome stuff I cant wait actually, will be good to see her able to fly about abit inside her cage
But until then shes kind of stuck where she is since I have NO money to my name right now! Bad times! I feel really cruel now!

That is so true, but some bird owners must still be buying them if those covers are being manufactured. Obviously, what they care for is $ they make, not the health of captive birds.

Great post Barrie.

Only wood in my cages for my babies . I love the manizita branches , though expensive, they are my babies favorite.

Could be bird owners who do not belong to any bird forums, do not read Bird Talk magazine nor any bird care books.
