    Promising review: "This is by far my bird's favorite toy. She has a love-hate relationship with it. One minute she is attacking it; the next, she is trying to cuddle with it.

    Promising review: "I always had trouble cleaning the bottom bars of the cage, but this solves all my problems! I've been afraid of normal chemicals, scented sprays, or any other cleaners. This makes cleaning so easy I can just wipe the cage with a paper towel after letting the bars soak for a minute. Gets rid of any bad smells and leaves a very faint lemony smell. I'm picky about my birds' health, so if you're uncertain, I can promise this is safe. I use it to clean some of their perches as well!" —Budgietwitter

I didn't have someone to help me assemble it, so I used a little masking tape to hold it where I should have had a helper. It took me less than an hour to assemble alone! The cage is sturdy and easy to move and my cockatiel Candy loves it!!" —BirdLady

I have them in a room with lots of sunshine, so I wasn't in any hurry to get them a new bulb, then it got all cloudy and rainy, and they weren't as active or chirping much, even when the sun came back days later. I ordered the new bulb, and what a difference in behavior! Busy flying back and forth and chirping up a storm! I have very happy birds once again!" —Granny62432
