This weekend's cage cleaning started poorly as well and we were really up against the bird poo and other mess they had made. Our first cage was a doozy of a mess ... a real cat fight back and forth. Twice during the course of the scrubbing Cameron (my Grey) got freaked out by one cleaning implement or another and flew off the cage! ... and both times she landed on the floor with a loud thump! The first time it was in the middle of cleaning the catch tray, the second time was when we were trying to get the crap piles off the floor!!. Her third time she got spooked he actually managed to land gracefully, but wouldnt you know that she had another poo locked and loaded, and let loose on the freshly cleaned floor. Little bugger!

 

She did manage to get her next one on the newspaper, though...

 

Right as we were about to finish, the weirdest thing happened. She had had dumped 6 loads of fresh bird poo since we started, anad was winding up for number 7. Birds go very frequently! She does her little dance and winds up to let fire, and she slipped off her perch! It was the darndest thing you ever saw, a bird taking a tumble off a perch in a mass of feathers and racing her own expulsion down to the floor. Even with clipped wings, tbirds can usually flutter to the floor, but greys are notoriously clumsy, and this was a clumsy fall. Fortunately she did manage to land okay, and just missed landing in a fresh wet pile.

 

Needless to say the other birds went ballastic and also fell off their perches.

 

So now we go finish and put her back in safely. Unfortunately we could not keep it clean for more than 15 minutes, and the endless cycle of cleaning bird mess began again..

 

The cleaning lasted 2 hours and 20 minutes and was a heck of a battle. Cameron had a heck of a time dealing with all that was going on around her, but after having a nice relaxing peanut for a treat and a few minutes on her dad's shoulder, she was a happy little parrot!

Not to intrude but you're completely off-base here. In Jersey, we clean our cages entirely different and it's the ONLY way to do it. I find if you put a pair of shorts on your bird that come down to their talons then they'll poop les frequently. Also, I can clean my cage in 10 mins so you're doing it all wrong.
