      A reliable product

      Over the years we have bought and used a number of sand sheets for our caged birds. At the moment we only have budgies but they deserve plenty of care and attention and so we like to ring the changes from time to time with what we buy. When looking for a pack of sand sheets we need to consider how they will work for our birds and the home they have.

      As bird cage sand sheets are packed away and sealed at the time of purchase you can't really check out whats in the pack till you get it back home. Sometimes we go back to old favorites and sometimes we opt for something different. Kagesan Sand Sheets are something we have used on many occasions and they have proven to be of a reliable quality and sit mid range amongst the sand sheets we have bought for our birds.

      **********************************************************
      Kagesan Sand Sheets come in a number of sizes and shapes to suit different cages, from rectangular to circular. The smaller sized sand sheets are either 21cms by 35cms or 25cms by 33cms. The medium to large sized sand sheets are 28cms by 43cms and 30cms by 55cms. This gives plenty of options to get the right sized sand sheet to fit the cage you have and we have found the sheets can be cut to size if needed with sharp kitchen scissors. Different packs of sheets have different highlight edge colours on the outside of the packs to make identification easier when purchasing them.

      In terms of price, you will pay more for the larger sheets of course, but even so prices remain competitive with smaller to medium sheets being around £1.20 and the larger sheets being priced around £2.15 per set. For the money you get 8 full sized sand sheets per pack in the smaller to medium packs and if using one sheet per cage every other day as we do, you should get up to 16 days worth of use from the sand sheets in just one pack. Obviously this depends on how many birds you keep per cage and the type/ size of birds you keep, as the more bird/ larger birds s in a cage, the more the cage needs regular cleaning.

      **********************************************************
      The sheets are covered in a sandy finished mineral coating which looks and feels very similar to the type of sandpaper sheets you might buy for a spot of light household DIY sanding. Using these sand sheets is easy as they can be simply laid flat into our bird cage. Once in situ they provide a good surface for our birds, which can help to keep the length of their claws down and also help to keep beaks in good condition.

      Using the paper sheets in this way means our birds don't have to have their claws trimmed very often, which is something most birds complain about greatly with plenty of wing flapping and squawking, so is best avoided. We have found that using a decent sand sheet such as these serves three purposes for us and our birds. The sheets provide a hygienic floor to our birds cage, that also look more attractive and interesting to them. Plus as mentioned earlier the use of these sheets can help to wear down our birds claws/ beak during every day usage.

      **********************************************************
      We have fond that the Kagesan Sand Sheets work well and stay in one piece when soiled, which makes for easier cleaning of our bird cage. They are also abrasive enough without being too hash and of a decent thickness. In terms of price they are not too expensive when compared with other similar products. Kagesan Sand Sheets are something that has worked well for our birds so they get a 4 star rating.

      Kagesan sand sheets have been available for over 20 years.They are made from good quality paper and covered all over with bird sand. They come in four or five rectangular sizes along with three round sizes. The smallest rectangular size is colour coded with orange bar on top and bottom of the packaging. Each different size has its own colour package making it easier to remember the size you need. The orange size has aprox eight sheets per packet making it excellent value for your bird. As the sizes get bigger the ammounts get lower but still represent best value. While other manufacturers have tried to copy these sand sheets,few if any get up to their quality. The smaller sizes are priced about £0.79 with the larger round ones at about £1.10 The varied choise of shapes and sizes means you should have little difficulty in finding the correct sheets for you.
