Now! For a Limited Time!...

Just kidding! Roz


Actually, I'm considering making designer cage covers. I'm pretty sure there's not a huge market for this, but the market there is would probably make use of something like what I have in mind. The problem is, I don't know if it's something I can actually "do" the way I have it envisioned. I can make the cage cover w/o a problem. It's just the "designer" part that I'm struggling with.

So, for my friends in Paradise, in order to "try out" my process, see how it works and get your feedback, I'd like to make you a designer cage cover for only the cost of materials and shipping. Of course, everything would be subject to your advance approval.

I'll make no guarantees how fast this process will go since I've never done it before, but I'm really anxious to give it a try, so if anyone is interested send me an IM and I'll provide more details.

I would totally do it if I were to ever have money again. But Piper is costing an arm, a leg and a lung. I was going to say kidney, but kidneys are a sore subject with me right now.

Sad poor thing. I think it's harder sometimes to have our fids be down and out than to be down and out ourselves.

I agree. I mean, there are times that I have to decide between us eating and them.... and they always eat.

If I used cage covers I'd be all over it, but I don't! Lucky to have a room that stays dark for the appropriate period!

We don't use them either but if we did ,I'd sure give them a try. Besides most of our cages have exterior perches bolted to them. Someone gave us a couple of the SS California Custom Cages with the real nice canvas covers that we don't use. Of course if i lived where it gets cold i might use them more often. Thanks for the offer.

We don't use them either. I got a really nice one when I adopted Sebastian, it came with his cage. It was made of a thick baby blanket and had baby prints all over it, kind of weird actually. I used it maybe three times and with his cage being so huge, it was a pain to setup... plus he ended up chewing a hole through it.

I can see covers for small cages being something thats a good idea. Maybe I'll get one for Arthur when I have some money in January. Will let you know.

Thanks everyone! Like I said, I know there's not a huge market but I'm giving it a shot anyway. My offer will stand for quite a while, I'm sure. If any of y'all hear of anyone looking for something like this, send them my way. I'll probably do this for anybody with a Paradise reference until I get a good process in place and am up and running. SO! Y'all keep this in mind, especially you breeders and rescue peeps who send birds on to other homes. Tell people if they needs cage cover to talk to me. Smile

Thanks a million!
