Wow, I've been posting a lot recently! But as it nears the end of summer I want get to work on some of my "To-Do" list. One of the things on my list was to upgrade to a better cage for my two feathery friends. They have a pretty good sized cage now that is by no means cramped but, well, I earned some extra cash this summer working and since I'm all paid-up for any current horsie or doggie needs, this extra money is going to the birds. And the cages I'm looking at will be more manageable for me (hopefully) since I'll be able to wheel them from window to window so the birds can get some nice sunlight (with the window open so the Vit. D actually filters through
) And my birthday is next week so may spend some bday money on them as well...we'll see
So I'll tell you what I'm looking for and I was wondering if any of you have bought cages like it and have a preferred brand or place to order from. I'm going to my favorite bird store this week or next week so I'll see if there are any cages there but from what I've seen the large cages they have are meant for large birds, so the bar spacing is much too wide. And I think there are some better deals online.
1/2" or below bar spacing
I'd like the dimensions to be about (and for any of these, the bigger the better- this is about the minimum) L30"xW18"xH50" and I want it to come with a stand with wheels (these measurements being of the cage itself, not the cage with stand together)
Price range: I'd like to stay within $100-$150; again, the lower the better
And...wait I think that's all of my qualifications
Oh! Color I'd prefer white but can go with black too.
Below are some screenshots of the cages I've looked at so you can get an idea of what I'm thinking.

The only thing I don't know about is this larger gap/thick wire in the middle here...have to make sure that no budgie part can get stuck in there!
I don't shop from ebay as much but so far I've had good luck with them and sometimes they have some good prices

Thank you so much for taking the time to read all of this! Any recommendations helpful!
Well, I had been looking for threads of a similar topic, but hadn't found them before I posted this. Well, surprise! I found some- just had to enter some different search words
It looks like the F040 and F050 and the HQ flight cage have been recommended- I was already looking at the F040 (it was one of the cages I showed above). The only thing is...well I hadn't thought about it until I was looking at the cage again, but all of the bars are vertical. Some of my dishes slide through horizontal bars. I do have dishes that screw on to the cage itself, since Hermes loves to knock his dishes over, so I guess I can always just get an additional screw-on dish or two. Now that I think about it, do any
of these larger cages have horizontal barring?
