I put Hueys treats and fresh food on the bottom so he know in the evening to go there for his yummy foods.
I also bought a playgym from petsmart.. probably the same one? Bright colours? Anyway.. it was cheaper and easier than building one right now!

It works fine, though it's not put together well. In fact, it almost works out better for me that way because I take it all apart when I'm going between houses and put it back together and since Levi weighs as much as a dust mite it still holds up!

But I agree... the wood perches are hard to clean. I would imagine you would have difficulty cleaning a cutting board base unless you put paper down.

Mine is the natural wood not the colored wood, I also like htat it can be taken apart for cleaning.

You know I think it was Rizzie once who mentioned putting that press and seal stuff in the bottom of the vision cage for easy clean up. That might be a good idea for a wooden or a plastic bottom. Provided it didn't get picked at but it sticks pretty smooth.

Someone else also mentioned cutting a number of correctly sized pieces of fleece and putting them at the bottom of the cage instead of newspaper. Washable and adaptable, once made, of course.

Guilty! I did it for Tumi's Vision cage, since the bottom is SO weird shaped. I used an old fleece sheet so it was only a dollar. If you have a garbage disposal, pre-cleaning is easy and then the washing machine does the rest.

Such a great idea! I recently acquired a Vision cage from our local humane society for a good price but when I was cleaning it, I was thinking - ugh! How am I going to deal with that oddly shaped base?? Ta-da! Thanks for sharing. These are the gems you get on this forum.

Here you go! Here's the thread where I describe making the fleece liners. I continue to use them, so they definitely work! http://talkparrotlets.com/showthread.php?t=51266

The peel and stick is a great idea. I think I'm going to go ahead with a wooden cutting board, it will just make it easier to mount the branches I have on to it. I plan on potty training my bird, so we'll see how that goes just using paper towel in a designated area. Should help with the cleaning part. I've seen lots of bird play gyms with wooden bases, so it can't be all that bad.

Not bird tested yet, but the humans approve.
