I decided to make a new original cage for two finches of mine and used old basket, picture frame and some crochet skills to create whimsy environment for my two birds.

I see in your profile you're in New the City? My daughter lives in Hoboken - just across the river - "almost" neighbors! :) We were in NYC in August - such a great place to visit!

we called them minies for some reason. They are both boys but love each other very much. I was told that they do not need female and are very happy just like that. My doves on the other hand are called Venda and Amalka - those are all Czech names.

Have a wonderful week

Love your bird cage - it's so creative and cozy looking for your birdies. They're so lucky to have their own custom-built home. What are their names?

Wanted to make sure everyone got the change to take a look at this amazingly creative project. I love the mix of materials and I'm sure the birdies are very happy in their new beautiful home. Congrats on a great project Vecernice and welcome to the site! We're all glad you're here.

Be well,

I know keeping birds in cage is not the happiest place for them to be but I can tell they like it so far. (I am sure they would like to be outside that cage more often) There is actually drawer underneath for their seeds and water. The drawer is made of original cover for the basket and a piece of wooden stained frame just glued to the cover.

I love birds, have two diamond doves as well in much bigger cage and really there is nothing like sitting in my room listening to them sing.

Wonderful weekend to all of you Posted: 2:53 pm on November 7th

I have a beautiful blue and white parakeet in my shop and I love the little sounds he makes...I call it his happy talk. His name is Blue Moon, but his house is not cute like yours. Love this, Georgia Posted: 1:46 pm on November 7th
