Default Buying new cage for 2

Hi all
Looking for your opinions.
We need to get a bigger cage for our 2 new budgies. I was looking at a shorter length but tall cage and have now read that isn't actually ideal for them. Need a flight cage set up.
Also I've read for 2 budgies the measurements of 30 by 18+ by 36" is deal. I'm finding it hard to find a cage like that in canada for a decent price.
If I were to find a cage that is around 26 or so wide by 20 ish but was slightly taller would that be okay..?

A tall cage tends to be more wasted space. Budgies fly side to side and a tall cage doesn't really benefit them. What is your budget to spend on a new flight cage?

If you have access to a car/van, have a look on online second hand sites - To help avoid wasted trips, I'd only consider those with good photos that I could zoom in to look for wear/rust esp around the door joints & obviously if you find one, it'll need a super deep clean.

Also if you look at second hand options try and make sure you can get a name of the cage brand to make sure it's the correct bar size for a budgie.

I would say our budget is about 170. All depends on if we order online then I have to take into account shipping. I've looked online and most of what I have seen in my area is tall useless ones. I was thinking of maybe attaching 2 smaller flight cafes so they would be very long for them..... ??

Seems to be there are cages for 1 budgie or a size that is overkill for 2 hahah

The best deal I found was a big flight cage on a stand with rollers for under $100. Its on amazon, Prevue Hendryx Pet Products Wrought Iron Flight Cage.
I checked used and new on Craigslist and nothing even close to this and the 30 day return policy and free shipping can't be beat. Love my amazon prime. Now on to decorating!

You don't have to get a cage that is spot on the correct size for two birds and bigger is always better.

A lot of people like the Vision cages

Sometimes local pet stores might have something that meets your needs. have you got any near you?

I believe this is the one Denra means, though it will have shipping fees added.
