I don't know what it is about feet and toes... But I definitely know what you mean 😂 my girl is tame and bonded to me, and she likes to chew on my toes... 🤢 Not only that but am I extremely ticklish, lol. Just the other day I got a video of her landing on my feet while I was layed out across my bed, she tried to grab my toes and I shooed her away, so she went and started yanking the tissues out of the tissue box... 🙄 Picked her back up so we could play with her ACTUAL toys, but instead, she wanted to "clean" my feet with the tissues... She had one in her mouth and was swiping it back and forth across the back of my feet lol

I thought I'd mention my wifes aviary again....In case anyone would be interested.
At one point, she had like 13 cages in our Sun room. Each cage was in the neighborhood of $250.
I even made her a few cages. Mesh and wood. They all got fouled with poop after a while. And the doors always left a lot to be desired.
A couple of years ago, I found an 8 foot, hexagonal aviary on Ebay (by a Chinese company called Juxtepy. Or something very near that)
It was just $300 and was a sturdy aluminum mesh, aluminum framed walk in cage that a large person could live inside.
I actually assembly it standing and walking around inside of it. And I'm that large person I spoke of...
It is light enough to move once assembled. Strong enough that we have not been able to damage it in any way.
For the money, this thing is a supreme bargain!
Ours is indoors, but mounting it to a cement slab outdoors would also be super easy.
It's large enough to stop aggression and birds can actually fly around in there.
It's the Taj Mahal of bird cages.
And for $300.

I've seen those on ebay, glad to hear they're pretty solid! Looks nice.

I've been very impressed.
The only part that sucked was when it arrived (2 boxes) one box had a small hole in it and all of the assembly bolts were missing.
I spent another $40 at Home Depot getting a few bags of nuts and bolts.

Ugh, that does suck. Too much trouble to return but trouble enough to replace parts. Hopefully they gave you some $ back!

My original posting is:
"Ebay hexagonal aviary review"
By ZEROPILOT
If you search that post, you'll see my original review.
I'm pretty sure I found it on Walmart.com and got it through Hayneedle.
As chatty as they are, I would love to do a zebra finch family in one. I'll look.💕
