Must admit, I bought cage covers for the greys Montana New Jersey cages, but they are rather dear at £60 a go! I really must get to Trago and locate some suitable material and run some up for the others. Once I get started I will be OK...... just never seem to get the time....

I bought covers from Scarlett for all our cages in a jet black material and they fit perfectly. There is no light left into the cages through the material and providing the bird does not try to eat the seams they will last forever.
Ours are covered at 7.30pm and do not make a noise until uncovered 8am next morning.
You have to specify the size and shape of your cage to get the right fit.
Not cheap but worth it for the good snug fit and so easy to velcro the sides together.

Local market - thick black material 60" wide - two lengths across the cage and a few pegs. Or trip to Homeless Bargins type place get some cheap blackout curtain linings - biggest size they have and again good old trusty pegs Shocked
