Default Good websites for buying Cages?

Hello all I have recently decided to get Ace a bigger cage to give him more room to play and run around. Some of the websites I have been looking at have really nice cages, but are to expensive or have to large of bar spacing and others are way to small. Can anybody recommend any good websites to check out or any good deals? Thanks!

ebay (check seller reviews carefully before purchasing)
Amazon
Wayfair
Petco
Craigslist - great place for used cages but you need to be careful. If your an inexperience noob to bird it might be better to stick with new cages from a reliable vendor.

Those were my favorite places to look when I shopped for a cage last. Got one cage from Amazon and one from Ebay this summer. A decade or so ago I used to buy cages from a farm feed store that had a modest selection of Prevue brand cages. Didn't have to worry about disease transmission because they didn't carry live birds.

I do live in the USA, and that cage looks amazing, but it looks like it is two stacked cages.... Is it one big cage? Because if it isn't, Ace is my only budgie and the other would be quite useless..... Thanks for the replies though

The Prevue Hendryx F040 is one large cage.

I have five of the F040s and only keep two birds at most in any of them.

My birds use the entire cage space including the bottom.
Each morning right after I change the newspaper on top of the bottom cage grate I spread some seed on the paper for them for "forage". Treats are served in a dish on the cage floor as well. This helps the birds become accustomed to using their entire cage.

The interior cage dimensions are:
31"Long x 20"Wide x 45"High (53" high includes the stand)

Thank you for those amazing photos! The cage looks absolutely spectacular the way you set it up but I am still a little worried that the huge increase in size will overwhelm him... I mean, it's HUGE! What is the best and less stressful way of moving him to the bigger cage? Thanks!

When you are ready to move him into his new cage, take everything out of his current cage except for one perch.

Have the new cage all set up and put his food and water inside.

Please the doors of the two cages at equal heights facing each other. If your budgie likes millet, you can hang a little sprig of it inside the new cage as an added enticement.

Now, step back away and let him take his time about being brave/curious enough to venture into his new palace.

It will take him a little while to get used to having so much space but when he does, he'll LOVE it.

I have the same cage except the F050 which is a bit bigger at 37x23 and my babies love it. I have 6 in it and the way I have it set up they use every square inch of it. Now that I have it I wouldn't consider anything smaller even if I only had two budgies in it. They are so active all day flying back and forth and be bopping between perches. The way it is made you can even put two of them together if you have room for a really giant cage that is. Mine have 3-4 hours out of cage time everyday to really be able to fly so I haven't attempted it yet but I think about it often. I feel sad you only have 1 budgie though. I can't imagine my babies not having each other to play with.

I just ordered that same cage from www.drsfostersmith.com it is a great price (89. plus tax, total 94.49, delivered) and it arrived in perfect shape. It said it is a 2 man job to put together. I did it alone in 45 minutes. (Hubby said 2 man=1 woman...lol) I have a single parrotlet in it and he loves it as do I. I also have 4 HQ flight cages which are an amazingly sturdy and well built cage but they cost 2x's the price of this cage which is a tad less strong but a great cage for budgies, tiels and other small birds.
