Nice post bob!
A refuge I like uses large rolls of waxed white butcher paper.
Easy to change as they cut many and keep extras under the cage.
With 1 large white sheet to pull they can tell how much the
bird is eating, pooping and what food it rejets. A terry
towel is used to wipe thing down & if the bird took a bath the
butcher paper does not absorb & the water can just be dumped
into a bucket. This refuge normaly has 50+ birds inside &
must be careful of dust!
Thanks for reminding people DUST,MOLD & Bacteria is a Big Deal!
