Thanks all. He is so funny. There is a toy that has 3 rings at the end of the net and if he swings high enough he rings the bell.

ParrotletRock - yes this is their birdroom.

Hi ParrotletsRock

Here's the room. It's definitely a work in progress and forever changing. My husband and I did all the wall painting (don't know what we were thinking-lol). We had painted trees, limbs and vines as well as leaves and flowers on all 4 walls (it looked awesome). Afterwards we realized we had to remove the trees/limbs/vines as Slater (CAG) was very uncomfortable with them. So that is what is going on where you see partial tree trunks/limbs. I guess they look too snake-like for his liking-lol. I haven't had a chance to remove what remains of the trees/limbs and can't bring myself to pick up another paint brush yet - lol.

The cages are on the left side of the room. The birds only go in their cages to sleep at night. I cover the cages during the day so they cannot access them. There is a feeding station on the right and a spiral PVC ladder to provide the birds access to the feeding station if they need it. All of them are fully flighted but Maccardi (RFM) chooses to use the ladder to get to his food. you can't see it in the pictures but there is a desk on the other side of the feeding station where I can sit and make toys if I want.

If I had to do it all over again I would paint the room a solid color as the birds really don't care one way or the other.
