Well, it's either wash two cages or wash one really big cage because two birds the size of these need a very large cage. They also need to be watched when they are out of cage to make sure they don't get into anything. Sounds like you have them in a room of their own, and I have my Amazons in their own room too, but when they are out of cage, they have to be supervised in case of flying into window or eating painted wood, etc.

I would recommend keeping them in the separate cages because if they are only eating and sleeping in them, one cage will not make much difference except to have heavier pieces to carry out and wash. Parrots are messy, and there is just no other way to put it. We clean up after them because we love them and want to keep them healthy. Your babies will grow quickly and become less and less time consuming as you move along, so just keep on keeping on as you have been. It would not hurt to see if there is an older child in your neighborhood who would want to learn about parrots and help you out with the cleaning chores which would leave you free to feed and water them. Make sure training is done under close supervision because parrots are exotic wild animals and sometimes are afraid of and then angry at strangers, so take time to let them get to know your new assistant.

Thanks for writing and keep us posted,
Linda
