Hi there, I am wondering if an "open-cage" concept is a housing strategy that works for budgies? What I mean by that, is whether budgies can safely be housed either without a cage and instead with an open structure that has perches, food, water...etc., or with panels of a cage take out so that the cage isn't full enclosed. I am wondering this, because I would like my rescue budgies to get more used to myself and my boyfriend. It has been approx. 4 months since we got them from a shelter and they still do not want to step up onto our fingers and run away when we put our hands in the cage. We do not have any children or any other pets, and the windows in the room they're kept in are not normally opened. Looking for advice, thanks!

What type of wood is safe to use as a perch?

Thank you for that information on perches. It seems common sense that the best place for them to perch is the same place they would in the wild. That, cannot be duplicated. Also, a quick shout out to Google for pointing me here. I would assume maple or oak branches would be fine.

Excellent site, I have 3 budgies, always used sandsheets and perches are all the same size. Now know I have been using things that are not the best so thank you for advice, will look for alternatives.
