    I have 2 Jumbo girls in the house. I don't have a place to put them, really. My little cage is ok for young ones, but not 2 - 6 weekers. Its wall to wall bird, I tell you. They are in a brooder tub and doing well. Hopefully only for a few days, as I started a hatch.

    So DH said I needed to get a fancy bird cage for the corner of the living room to use for a hospital cage. He's throwing his arms wide and tall and I don't need that. I got the very best one out there girls, sorry, he's taken. [​IMG] I think he misses Vanilla being in here, he liked his calling early in the morning. Of coarse he slept through the worst of it.

    I never really thought of getting a permnent house cage. It would just be used for a hospital for breeders. Used temporarily and be decoration in between uses. So what do you think I should get? I could use some suggestions.

    Oh, I could use it to rest them too. Rotate them. hummmmmm [​IMG]

    I need ideas.

    I just have to make sure its not to small. Get several, so needs to be stackable or on shelves. Or make one. No he said buy something.

    I have no idea, but I very much wish I had the money in my paypal right now. The site doesn't take paypal, otherwise paypal could issue an e-check. I'll have to do a bank transfer cause those cages are CHEAP!! Even if you only used 1, you could sell the rest for a nice profit. These cages sell on average for $25-$30 each.

    Remember. he was waving his arms high and wide and said for decoration. I think he is thinking wrought iron type, but have no clue where to look.

    Well, those other cages are a lot cheaper than $400.00...
