Default Two cages - which one?

Hi, I have ended up with two cages (LONG STORY!!!) and I need some advice on which one is better. I only have one budgie (Buddy), who gets lots of out-of-cage time, but I need to know which cage he would like better.

Currently, he is in this one: Rainforest San Luis Bird Cage in Black ? Next Day Delivery Rainforest San Luis Bird Cage in Black

But I have this one too: Rainforest St Lucia Bird Cage ? Next Day Delivery Rainforest St Lucia Bird Cage

Any ideas?

I think the St. Lucia cage would be better. It looks much bigger. I would keep the other cage just in case you need a quarantine cage in the future! Or you can keep it as a spare cage just in case the other cage is broken.

Cool, it's decided! Buddy will be moving house! I'm worried that this will put us behind in our clicker training. We are only on day three but he's already learned "touch", to touch the end of the target stick. I'm not willing to try and lead him into the new cage with the stick, too much too soon I think.

I know how to transfer him between cages, should I just do this in the morning, and continue the training as we have been, so that he can see that nothing but the cage has changed?

Your San Luis Cage is W 48cm x D 37cm x H 69cm
and
the St. Lucia is W 46cm x D 36cm x H 92cm

In my opinion, when it comes to cages -- bigger is always better no matter how much out of cage time your budgie gets.

I'm glad you've decided to upgrade Buddy to the larger cage.

When I move my birds from one cage to another, I take all the perches, toys, etc. out of the current cage (except one perch) and arrange the new cage. I put the food and water in the new cage, line up the doorways of the two cages and let my bird move over into the new cage on his own to check everything out.

Having the move take place in the morning is best and then you can go ahead and continue with your normal training routine.

Thanks for everyone's advice! Seriously, I have a happy and healthy budgie due to the help everyone on this forum has given!

Anyway, I moved everything apart from one perch into the new cage, lined them up and left him to it. 30 minutes later, he was playing with all of his toys (and one new one) in the new cage like nothing had even happened. Do we worry for nothing?

Started his first training session of the day, and he reacted as if nothing had changed! Happy mummy!!!

I both agree and disagree.
Birds like to be higher up so the hight of a cage shouldn't be counted but the width should be as big as possible. If you get a thin tall bird cage, the bird won't use all the room and stay on the top perches.
Your San Luis Cage is W 48cm x D 37cm x H 69cm
and
the St. Lucia is W 46cm x D 36cm x H 92cm

Therefore doesn't the San Luis Cage have more flight room because it has a larger width?
