"I ordered double stack cages and a Manzanita Tree play stand from you and I am so happy with both. The cages were perfect for my 2 conures. With them being stackable it gave the birds plenty of room while freeing up much needed space in my utility room. I cannot thank you enough for quality products at affordable prices. Joy, I was very pleased with your prompt response to all of my emails. I would highly recommend Avian Emporium and would not hesitate to purchase from you again."

"Thank you. The cover was worth the wait -- beautiful craftsmanship. I was out of the country on business so I just wanted to drop a line. Thanx again."

"Yesterday UPS delivered the two white Chiquita cages ordered from you. The four boxes arrived in good shape, and had warnings on the outside not to discard the packaging materials until I knew the cages went together as claimed.
The first one took about 45 minutes to assemble, it being the first knockdown style I've handled. The second one took about 15 minutes to put together, including assembling the latches and food bowls. Altogether, I am extremely happy about choosing the Chiquita in white. While I wanted to get this in stainless steel, the white powder coat paint looks very nice. Our new sunporch is a small room, but the two African greys who will live in these cages enjoy out-of-cage time also. I realize the cages are smaller than optimum for them, but the dome top extends the head room nicely.
I hung their swinging toys, one suspended from the builtin ring in the center of the dome, and their favorite perches, and they went right in. The female CAG is a very neat particular little lady, and she climbed all over once inside, and approved of her new quarters. The male is more rambunctious and generally makes a mess throwing food to the dogs, etc, and the seed skirt being sturdy means it will hold up nicely. I notice that the top track for the wire grate is slanted downward, which will help direct dropped food and feathers into the tray below. I appreciate that this feature will help when it comes time to clean the cage. Lots of other cage manufacturers besides Avian Adventures puts a wire shelf under the cage, which is a handy neat feature, but few of them provide the excellent quiet wheels. It is easy to roll the cage around without removing the water bowl, the bells don't dingding as much, and overall the birds are less disturbed by adjustment of the cage location.
I had to adjust a wire tab on one of the food bowl doors because it would not permit the door to close. I bent it upward as much as 1/2 inch and now it serves its purpose, which is to lock the bowls in place, and keep the birds from removing the food bowl assembly. I appreciate this small feature also, because both my birds sometimes get in a snit if they don't like the contents so much! And pellets can be very expensive.
The white was chosen to keep the cages from looking dusty. African greys are not as bad as cockatoos for dust, but the two old cages were very dark and it was a constant battle to wipe off feather dust. Also, in the sunroom location, I figure birdy toes won't as likely get too hot from south Alabama summer sun which engulfs this room.
My male CAG lived in an Avian Adventures cage purchased 11 years ago this February. While it is still a strong and usable cage, it suffered from immersion in salt water during Hurricane Katrina. This led to rust inside the legs and now we cannot remove or roll the wheels. Probably a welder could cut off the offending rusted sections and we could attach new wheels, but I associate that cage with a time of loss and trauma. I think my CAG remembers when he was trapped in this cage too, and it is time for us to move on. At least, he seems happy with his new quarters."

"I just wanted to commend you on your excellent products, prices and customer service. Recently I had a nightmare experience with another internet site selling avian products. I had a deposit down on a baby Green-cheek conure and only a limited amount of time left before my little "Addie" had to be paid-in-full and brought home. I selected a cage from "the other company"...it was shipped out...and arrived damaged. Two times a replacement was arranged, and each time the product, again, arrived with significant flaws which could pose potential harm to my little baby. Meanwhile, my time was up and baby had to come home...with no cage. I called you in desperation hoping that you could help to get me an appropriate cage very quickly. You did just that. On the first try...my cage arrived perfectly packaged, in top-notch condition...and at the best price I could find anywhere! I will never again use another company again for a cage. Thanks so much!"
"I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful selection of replacement toys you selected for my bird. Not only has the new cage TOTALLY changed her attitude (for the better!!) but she is really happy with the toys also. We can't believe that after 22 years in the same cage she has made such a great adjustment to the new one. She no longer picks her feathers and is constantly occupied with something in or on the new cage. Thanks for giving us a happy bird again!!"
"We received the cage and toys today and my blue and gold macaw absolutely loves them, especially the Boing! Thank you very much. The cage was delivered with no damage and it looked like they packed it very well, just as you said."
"Cage arrived and was perfect. Thanks so much."
"I just received a box from you on Thursday and carefully unpacked it yesterday morning. Inside was a brand new cage tray and two curving ladders for my A&E Double Stack Breeder Cage...all in perfect condition. I'm just delighted! :-)
The tray easily slides in to any of the three slots (below the cages, or as a base for the top playtop)! I could NOT begin to slide in the other defective tray. It was too out of shape. I'm also relieved that my new baby Pionus will have a complete ladder to climb on without any missing rungs or sharp edges! The extra ladder is certainly an added bonus, too. :-D
THANK YOU SO MUCH for your prompt attention to my concerns about this cage. I feel soooo much better! I think both my birds will learn to feel at home and secure in their new double cage. I'm very pleased and deeply appreciative of your quick response to my dilemma. Thank you, Ken! It's been a pleasure doing business with you. And please express my gratitude to the A&E Cage Company as well!"

"WOW! the delivery was REALLY fast! ...Thanks again for all your help (and for all the toys). It was a pleasure speaking with you and doing business with Avian Emporium. Have a blessed day."

"Thank you so much for the wonderful service and advice on our new stainless steel cage for Merlin the Macaw. We’re so pleased with his beautiful new cage and he seems pleased as well. The delivery of the cage was prompt, and assembly a breeze.
We’d also like to thank you for your advice in selecting toys for the cage. Merlin loves all his new toys, but most of all your advice in constructing new toys from coconut shells was a huge hit.
We are so grateful for your advice, time, and professional expertise in helping us with our new pet. We will be better “bird parents” and Merlin will be a happier bird due to Avian Emporium! We plan on making Avian Emporium our sole provider for all Merlin’s accessories."

"I received my cages this afternoon (I ordered them Saturday evening). I just want to thank you for the prompt service. I really wasn’t expecting to get them until early next week. I was both surprised and delighted.
I have been looking for stacking cages for about 3 months. This one has turned out to be perfect for my needs.<br>Thanks again for the prompt service!"
Cara M. - Ashville, GA
"Thanks so much for the quick reply and the personal response. What a great group of people you are, and I look forward to many years of working with you!"
"Wow, I am amazed how quickly this got to me...I love the cage, anxious to get my bird in it."

"...very impressed with the service I received & will buy from you again."
Danny E. -Los Angeles, CA
"I got the cage this morning & it's great! It seems like it's excellent quality & it is perfect for my Grey. I know where I'll be getting my next cage!"
"I'm very impressed.... That's all I'm going to say!"
"All I can say is WOW!!! I looked around a lot, and you guys were the cheapest on every cage I considered. You also gave me excellent advice every time I called. On top of all that, I received my cage in less than a week & it's even nicer than I was expecting!"
Mary W. -Knoxville, TN
"The cage was received promptly & Ruby (my bird) loves it."
"I just wanted to take the time out to thank your company for being so helpful and efficient with my recent order. I ordered my cage for a great bargain, 3 days later when I received it I realized it was much bigger than I had anticipated. I called and told you about the mistake I had made and you were very helpful in helping me return the cage and receiving a new smaller cage within 3 days....I was very impressed and will continue to purchase from you in the future."
"I called your store earlier today and talked to a gentleman, he patiently replied to every little question I asked, and he was so truthful with me. I kept him tied up on the phone for 30 minutes and at no point did he seem anxious to get off the phone with me. Please give him a pat on the back & just know that I will never buy my bird products elsewhere again!"
