My recommendation is to call the manufacturer for paint recommendations and, believe it or not, some cage manufacturers will do that for you. In any event, you must make sure the paint is nontoxic since most birds do scratch it with their beak. After painting Make sure you let it dry completely: Permit the paint to dry for at least 48 hours before moving your bird into the cage, so be prepared to have a secondary cage on hand. Also you should know that although paint may be nontoxic when dry, there are paints may be harmful to your bird if inhaled, so paint it as far as you can from your birds, outdoor area preferred.

How many toys should be in my bird's cage at a time?

The amount of toys varies according to the size of the cage. You will need to ensure that there is enough room in the cage for your bird to extend its wings and move freely. I would recommend using between 3-4 toys at a time. Keep in mind that it is a good idea to have extra toys set aside and to rotate them to keep your bird from becoming bored.

This depends on your birds. If noise/light does not interrupt your bird from sleep than you should be fine without; however if your bird is easily disturbed, you may want to try using a cover so that they remain undisturbed.

The travel bird cage is usually a smaller version of a normal bird cage. The travel bird cage does not need to be large, nor does it need to be as durable as your bird cage. Be sure that your bird can comfortably fit in this cage for a short amount of time so that it will not become stressed.
