Question What Would You Suggest?

Hi guys! I am a proud momma of 5 budgies! 5 budgies obviously need their space. I am planning on upgrading their housing in the next few weeks, and I'd love to get some caging suggestions. I'd rather it be taller than wider, as my room would be more allowing of dimensions that are height-ranged rather than width-ranged. I feel as though my current cage is getting too cramped for my poor feathered friends. I do have a few other cages, but as my budgies are all very attached to one another, I'd hate to separate them.

I look forward to your responses and [hopefully] pictures!
Thanks in advance,
Alissa

I totally agree with Randy.

Do you think it'd be big enough to house five?

I've seen this picture from Deb before, and Sammy saw it over my shoulder and immediately starting squaking in jealousy! I have to hide it now!!

Your cages look immaculately clean, Deb!

Good luck on your search for the perfect cage, Alissa! I have the Montana Madeira I for one budgie, so I'm in favor of giving as much space as possible.

A "single flight cage" that's at least 30x18x36" is suitable for 4-5 budgies so long as they get daily out-of-cage flight time. Most cages this size come with a rolling stand to facilitate vacuuming/sweeping.

The $104.44 sale price (with free shipping via Amazon) for the Prevue Hendryx F040 can't be beat!
Amazon.com : Prevue Pet Products Wrought Iron Flight Cage with Stand F040 Black Bird Cage, 31-Inch by 20-1/2-Inch by 53-Inch : Birdcages : Pet Supplies Amazon.com : Prevue Pet Products Wrought Iron Flight Cage with Stand F040 Black Bird Cage, 31-Inch by 20-1/2-Inch by 53-Inch : Birdcages : Pet Supplies
. You can thank Deb for this bargain!

The Prevue Hendryx F050 is slightly larger:

.

Other candidates are:
HQ single flight cage HQ Aviary Flight Cage with Stand - Flight Bird Cage and Bird Flight Cage from petco.com

A&E single flight cage
Amazon.com : A&E CAGE CO 32-Inch by 21-Inch Flight Cage and Stand, Sandstone : Birds Cages : Pet Supplies Amazon.com : A&E CAGE CO 32-Inch by 21-Inch Flight Cage and Stand, Sandstone : Birds Cages : Pet Supplies

Bali Bungalow "double breeding bird cage" plus 26" rolling stand Bali Bungalow Double Breeding Bird Cage, Doube Bird Cages and Double Breeding Cages at Bird Cages 4 Less

The bar spacing for each is proper at 1/2".

When I selected my cage, the number of large doors (1 or 2) and food cup accessibility were important to me. I prefer two large doors plus guillotine-style food and water cup doors so I can change food and water without opening the large front door.
