    I have macaws not greys and there is no way I can "grab a
    cage" in case of fire, they are double macaw cages. I had an
    additional room built off the first floor for my macaws. So
    much space is wasted because of cages I want to go cage free.
    Maybe with greys its good to cage them, mine like to be out of
    their cages as much as possible interacting with each other.
    No one in their right mind would allow macaws loose in their
    house 24/7.
    I will find a good macaw only board to post on.
