I am more than willing to buy it, but I thought since Ace is my only budgie, he would get a little lonely with how big the cage is.
I know some people on TB have this cage but wanted to know how my little cutie would do in this big of a cage alone.
Keep in mind, I would put a LOT of new and fun toys and perches for him both inside, and outside the cage as well as a lot of out of cage time and one on one time with me.
Also, if anybody has this cage or something similar, I would love to see different set ups!
I'm a new single Budgie parent and this is the exact cage I bought through Amazon. Tiki uses the space both vertically and horizontally. There is lots of space to hang toys and still allow them to flit around and stretch their wings. I did have some issues while putting it together, but was able to work around it with a few simple tools. The rollers allow you to move it around, but can be a bit difficult at times if you have carpet. On a scale of 1-10, I rate it an 8.5.
Thank you for the response! Does Tiki still enjoy coming out of the cage even with all the space and fun toys? I can work through putting it together and setting it up, I just want Ace to have a larger cage!
As you know from my various posts, I have five of them. Three of those five housed single birds with the remaining two cages having two birds each.
My budgies love having lots of room to play and fly in the cages. Additionally, contrary to what you may be told, all of my birds utilize the entire portion of their cages.
Setting cages up to encourage use of the bottom section of the cage is key.
I think the bigger the cage, the better. However, if you've only had Ace recently, I suggest you should start off with a smaller cage (so he wouldn't be too tempted to stay in the big cage all day!). Toys are great but make sure you don't fill up the entire cage and leave quite a lot of room for your budgie. I think you should buy it, if you have already finger-trained Ace.
But, there's also the problem of settling into the new cage so if it isn't that much of a difference than the old cage, GREAT!
