Budgie Cage Update
August 6, 2011 § 11 Comments
Much to my chagrin, Charles and Sabrina are determined not to get along. They tolerate each other for short periods of time, but they simply cannot be in the same cage anymore. I am still not sure if this is due to a lack of space or if they truly just do not like each other, but it’s a little disheartening, especially since I have a beautiful new cage for them in the works. Originally it was going to be 36″ wide by 20″ deep, as I thought this would be a nice size flight-style cage for the two of them to share. But now that they aren’t getting along, I am thinking of putting a divider in the middle, meaning that each of them will only get 18″ x 20″ of space… very much on the small side in my opinion. I’m not sure what to do. Any opinions? Do you think this is too small? My real hope is that once the big cage comes, it’ll be enough space that they will leave each other alone and I won’t have to use the divider, but I’m not sure. I’m thinking of increasing the depth from 20″ to 24″ but space is very limited here, and I’m not sure if that will really work.
Not much else is going on otherwise– August is a busy, busy month here, and it looks like September will be even busier!
