I'm looking for a larger budgie cage for Petie. All the prevue products I've seen are pretty flimsy. I have an all living things cage which is sturdy, but only 15.7 x 15.7 x 18 inches high. They make a slightly larger one but its only 14.5 deep so I really wanted something like a 18 x 18 x 24. Any suggestions for a sturdy, good cage would be appreciated.
I also have one of the 30x18x18 white flight cages. To me, it seems the best space for the money. The grate is not removable, however, so you either need to put the paper on top of the grate (what I do) or plan on wiping it off frequently.
I use the Liberta Oregon flight cage for my guys and I like them a lot as a cage...theres a big door in front and its easy to reach all parts of the cage and you can wheel it round too. As a precaution though I tie down all the smsll sliding doors. I use a plate for food on the floor simply because my budgies enjoy eating that way. I threw away the perches that came with the cage and put in an appletree branch and several small natural wooden perches plus there is lots of room for toys. I find they use most of the cage space but thats probably becsuse I place the food on floor level ...if you place your food on a dish on the floor make sure that there are no over hanging perches or toys over the dish of food as you dont want them pooing into their food. Also make sure the plate is large enough to give space to two or more budgies and watch out that bullying doesnt occur and if it does you may need to set up another food station ...I would like the cage even bigger but thats the biggest I can find that fits all my needs. https://www.pet-bliss.ie/acatalog/Or...Liberta-1.html
Budgie fly laterally, not vertically so having length is important.
That's why many people like the 30" L x 18" W x 18" H cage.
Nellow and Primrose are in a cage this size because Nellow cant fly with lots of climbing ladders and frames in it to all perches and swings and they are very happy in it...Primrose who has fledged and can fly seems happy there too snd seems to satisfied with the height of it but I do give him lots of out of cage flight time too.
