What is the best size of cage for my bird?

The basic rule is to provide a cage large enough for the bird to move around and play while he is confined inside. Each parrot species has different needs and requires a minimum of space to be happy. Ideally, the bigger the cage is, the better it is, but we must also take into account the spacing between bars and the number of birds living in the cage.

To know whether a cage is large enough for your bird, he must be able to flap his wings freely without obstacles. Provide a large door for an easy exit, depending on the size of your bird, and small doors for nest, if needed and for easy cleaning. Bottom drawers are very convenient for cage maintenance and to reduces the time of the chore!

Check the spacing between the bars, to avoid unfortunate incidents.

Also avoid round cages or the ones containing traces of corrosion.
