Default Budgie cages

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 have one of the white flights that FaeryBee mentioned (The 30x18x18). It's great! Very sturdy. I've had it for years.

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.

There a super choice of cages there.
I have a Hagen one which has last me very well and suits our apartment but isn't the easiest to move when the birds go on holiday.

The bigger the better, but be wary of parrot cages as the bar spacing can be out.

Do consider if you need to move it, if you want more birds, and cleaning, that's really important.
It's quite fun shopping for the birds so enjoy it and good luck, hope to see photos when you get it

SO is it better to have a long cage v. a square cage that is higher.

For instance 18 x 18 x 24?

Hi..
King's cages are regarded as sturdy.. I found this on on Amazon
https://smile.amazon.com/Superior-Fl...6%3A2661615011


And I have this one, which is also sturdy (I can go on and on about liking the double doors )

Good luck and have fun cage hunting! Let us know which one you decide on, ok?

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.

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.

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.
