Old Cage, New Cage

The new cage arrived yesterday and I'm so excited! I'd like to do an unveiling:


Yes you're seeing correctly, it's a double cage with one compartment on the top and another on the bottom. We are getting another Caique! It will be a White-bellied Caique this time. The baby has just hatched and won't be ready to bring home for several months, but at least it's official. Nani's old cage, seen in the background, is about half the size of the new one. She's a bit weary of it still and hasn't gone exploring yet but hopefully soon will be over her fears. That's her atop the old cage in the photo, she's been comfortable enough with it in the same room. I'm not quite sure when we'll do the switch but the old cage will be going on Craig's List after a good cleaning (not looking forward to that...yuk).
So, I need to start compiling a list of baby names...anyone have suggestions? Nani's name (pronounced Nah-nee) means "beautiful" in Hawaiian. I liked it because it is unique and worked for a girl or a boy. I won't know the sex of the new baby until after it's here.

I have a double decker cage also. I house my conure in the top cage and my cockatiel in the bottom. It didn't take them long to get used to it and it saved a huge amount of space in the bird room. I think you will really be glad you purchased such a neat cage. Have fun with your new baby and don't forget to post tons of pics for us to see!

I did the switch today so I'll post photos soon. Nani was a bit aprehensive but she's playing in it as I type. :)
