I built Ottos mansion!

After an hour and a half of frustration and a patient/helpful bf, we got Ottos cage built late last night. I stayed up another hour making toys and decorating the cage. I was so excited to show him his new mansion this morning.







I also got him this awesome no-mess feeder. The corner was broken off when amazon delivered it so I had to get creative and figure out a way to hang it myself. He loves to sit in his bowl and kick his seed everywhere and waste it all, and so far this thing has kept it all from ending up all over my carpet and the bottom of his cage! He started out sitting on the little perch but ended up sitting in his seed and kicking through it, but the feeder kept the mess in. I'm impressed with the concept but annoyed at the broken corner it arrived with.

Wow Otto! That IS a mansion! You look so tiney! And proud.
I love it!

You know I buy from Amazon all the time. If you contact customer service by emailing them, just tell them the dish was broken and they will send you a new one ASAP. Easy.

That is a HUGE cage for such a little birdie!! Levi is jealous.

Definitely contact the Amazon seller... I've had things arrive broken or break after a couple uses and have always either had my money returned, or a new one sent.

Sweet, I have a flight cage similar to that one, love it. My little guys are still in a vision cage until they are a little bigger. I am sure Otto is very happy to be in a mansion!

I'd say that you have a very spacious abode there Otto, you lucky little birdie you!

Not that any of us here are obsessed with our little birds and spoil them rotten.

Thanks everyone!!

He had a spacious cage before, but this one is a little more than double what he had before. He is still a baby (just turned 6 months) so he is in his terrible twos and is going through an even worse biting phase than ever. He will be completely relaxed then go on a chewing spree and chew up anything in sight, including me. He just finished his first molt so we made it through that rough, crabby phase already...now the terrible twos just have to pass. But I think having such a big cage tires him out and we were able to make our play sessions a bit longer than usual which I am excited about. He will sit on my knees or hand and just fluff up, get scratches, preen and take a nap. Run around a bit and repeat lol.

Oh and I contacted amazon and am waiting to hear back from them...so hopefully they can send me a new one or refund me my money. It seems like a lot of other people have had the problem based on the reviews, but I took a chance.
