Buddy is a lucky guy I guess..2 cages,an outdoor cage and playgym..all of them differ in quality. I link 2 cages together with the playgym on the end. His largest cage was inexpensive,yet had the seed guards like the others..so I figured that would be easier to keep his area clean..the large cage does not have the seed guards integrated onto the vertical lower bars like the other cage and play gym do. This renders them almost useless because a lot of food,shreds of paper and such,find their way to the floor or to the lower shelf rail where it's difficult to clean because of the gap. Also,they're screwed together making the hinges impossible to clean..I use a toothpick with some success. So much for buying a cage on line ! Just a note to consider when you go to look for a new palace for your bird !
