I've gone and bought the PERFECT parrotlet cage. It's antique painted wood with metal painted bars 1.5 iches apart 10x10x10 inches in demension. I figure i'll use some rust proof spray paint to repaint it. It's awsome. I think I can fit 3-4 birds in there. I've got some stryrofoam toys and shiny beads on a string as toys, aswell as a nylon rope (that will last longer than cotton). I'm putting it between the frig and the stove (the ventilation is better there). I've also got some nylon collars with zinc tags to go around the birds neck. OBVIOUSLY I'M JUST KIDDING! I would be an IDIOT if I did this. But seriously, I'm thinking about one of those acrylic cages to keep mess outside to a minnimum. What do you all think? I'm having a hard time finding a locally made one. I may have to build my own. I've not decided on demensions, but I'll go as big as I can. I've got to figure out the number of ventilation holes I'll need to put into the uppersides. Have any of you kept acrylic cages?
