Cool! Sounds like you and Zig are making great progress.Perch trained, petting and eating with you right there... Way to go you 2!

Cleaning cage bottom? the grate removable?
At any rate a stiff brush or plastic scrungie thingy to get poops off and wipe down with apple cider vinegar and water. If removable you can clean it in the tub

And even if he doesn't like bathes yet, still offer it..maybe he'll decide to take a dip. I use a plastic sandwich container,tried numerous tubs and dishes before Levi decided he like the sandwich thing. WITH a piece of lettuce LOL
Ziggy hasn't attempted a tub bath yet..but he does like a nice wet piece of lettuce clipped to the side of the cage and bathes that way smile

There is also a bird safe enzyme cleaner called Poop-off, it comes in both a spray (spray it on a paper towel) or wipes and it works really well for that last little bit of whote residue on the grate - I only use it once n a while. It is also great for getting poop off the couch (my conure loves to poop there and they are bigger and wetter than keet poop)

Hi Ziggy. I've read on here that the sand perches make their feet sore! I have one in their cage but they don't use it very often. I see them scuffing their beaks on it or I would have taken it out already. What do you think?

I use one of those green scrubbers, cut into little squares to get the poop off sometimes.

the reason I have to cut it into LITTLE squares is because my birds are scared of it if it's very big! I know that's funny but I don't want them to be scared. I don't know what the think I'm going to do to them with it!! LOL
