What to put at the bottom of my bird's cage? What will help to keep my bird cage clean? That is a frequently asked question and the answer is pretty straight forward. -- First, birds can be messy and the combination of dropped food, water, and bird droppings at the bottom of the cage is a rich environment for bacteria, mold, etc. And so, it is important to keep the cage bottom clean. Also, a clean cage bottom allows you to monitor your bird's droppings, as they are one barometer of a bird's health.
As far as bedding materials, never use corn cob, walnut shells, cedar shavings, pine shavings, or kitty litter. Each of these are dangerous to birds for multiple reasons.
