My full time RVing pets, Sparky the zebra finch, and Alpha the canary. Alpha is a "soft feathered" canary, and unfortunately, there are some genetic problems associated with the soft feathers. One main thing, her wing feathers grow in crooked and in lumps, and she can not fly. Otherwise, she's been happy and healthy. I've rigged it up so she can get out of her cage to the window, and she spends all day there. I've got papers and washable mats under the ladders to catch the poop. BTW, birds make good RV pets, just make sure they are in there cage and it's secure when you are moving.
