Well today barsha got an upgrade in homes. he went from a decent size of 18 x 13x32 inch cage to a 6 foot by 2 foot, by 5 foot tall cage.

Here are pics of the new cage.







It is a dog kennel i used to have for my iguana that passed away last year. I thought today why wouldn't that work for the bird? so i wrapped all the edges with pipe insulation and bought some cheap dowels and a few more bird perches. I will soon buy some more food dishes and set up different types of food around the cage so he can forage. And i still need to put in the rest of his toys. The bottom i put a plastic table cloth that i can shake out, and throw away. and the top is a fitted sheet fastened with a ton of zip ties. The whole thing is wrapped with plastic chicken wire and plastic hardware cloth. You can buy a parrot cage much smaller than this for over $500, and this cost me $60 dollars since i already had the kennel, the table cloths, and the hardware cloth. and honestly it would have cost less but i bought a big rope perch, a snuggle tube, and new cuttle bone, and random stuff he really doesn't need.
