Do you folks notice any cage colors that show off certain colors of birds better than others?
We originally had Doug, who is a blue parrotlet, in a grey cage. We could never find him in that cage. We might look in there for a full minute before seeing him. It was very annoying.
He needed a new cage, and Cannary wanted a different color because she likes lots of colors. She picked a tan cage. It is made almost exactly like the first cage, but now we can see him easily.
The predominantly green birds, Roni (senegal), Shira (pineapple green cheek), and Daisy (Maximilian pionus) are easy enough to spot in grey cages, although I've never tried them in anything else. I have always thought I liked the grey because it doesn't show dirt easily.
After realizing what a huge difference there is in how Doug looks in a tan cage verses a grey cage, I wondered if any of you had ideas on cage colors that show off your birds better than others.
