We visited pet shop and other shops and made our 1st shopping basic things for Rio. Food & stuff for new cage [In the first part of the video watch what we bought for him!] We made our purchase 5. day after our pet arrived to us. Making of the cage started on the 6th day and took us a total of 3 days making. In the second part of video take a look at cage making process for Indian ringneck and how it looked like in the end. Right from the start I will show you the food we bought, that is, packing food for large parrots consisting of about 50% sunflower seeds, wheat, oats, rye, hemp, corn and peanuts. We bought this food even though he belongs to medium-sized parrots and he will probably leave out rye and corn here and we should add pumpkin seeds to it. We also bought a new drinker, feeder, mineral stone and cuttlefish bone, swing and vitamin supplement for water. We also bought a sprayer, some parrots are known to prefer spraying than classic bathing. We also bought a natural rope to make a natural swing in the cage. We noticed that he likes peanuts a lot and sunflower seeds, we bought in special bags that, so that we can sometimes feed him from hand so he can stay tamed bird. To make the cage we used pallets, cage wire and other necessary things that we bought like a screwdrivers, stapler, eco-friendly paint, wheels… As for the cleanliness and care of the parrot, it is very convenient to make drawer. We bought one wooden board for the drawer as well as a mechanism for pulling out the drawer. Our cage is almost done. We put the wheels to make it easier to move it in all directions. The cage door is also done. We will now paint the bottom of the cage, that is, the drawer with our eco-friendly paint which is odorless, safe for coloring toys and safe for objects in contact with food. We also paint the whole pallet construction. Otherwise size our cage is 60x90x100 cm. We haven’t had much time to record each part of the cage construction separately, but I hope this what you see will be helpful. What we especially need to pay attention when we making a cage is the type of parrot, the size of the bird, and the habits. After the first coat of paint has dried. We painted the construction one more time. After drying, we started putting the wire on the cage, of course after measuring the dimensions
and cut it. We made a real mess around the house. Everyone agrees that parrots are the most popular pets. In order to feel comfortable and like in natural habitat, they need a comfortable cage. There is a wide range of cages in the market in various shapes and sizes for different sizes of parrots. But for the ideal one that will satisfy the parrot’s requirements, we must supplement. Rio is a real little curious as we had work around the cage he gladly explored and destroyed his new toys. Indian ringneck requires a minimum cage of 60x45x90cm. A parrot needs a cage which he can extend his wings in at least two directions without touching the cage wires. First you need to determine the shape and size of the cage, then you can move on to drawing the sketch on which it will be precisely defined height and width of the cage. The cage was completed on day three and the next day we moved Rio to a new home. We supplemented the cage with a ladder we made ourselves. Temporary smaller stands were replaced with firmer ones. We glued to the bottom of the drawer
self-adhesive foil to make it easier to clean the cage. It is necessary to put wooden bars and scales of different thicknesses in the cage, as well as many toys, to constantly nibble and exercise the beak such as willow twigs, wooden toys that will be able to damage and disperse at will. Various natural branches also need to be put in to naturally sand the beak and nails. Rio seemed to like the new home a lot, and we have to admit we are happy too. He explores every corner carefully and spends most of his time on this swing I made myself. Now Rio and we can rest after a few days of hard work.
