Question The F040 for Mexico and Ice

Hello again everybudgie! I've been looking into bigger cages for the buddies, and I've heard good things about the F040, but I'm confused because it is only 20.5 inches wide, and I thought the minimum width for two budgies was 30 inches? Could someone tell me if the F040 is ok for Mex and Ice, or should I look into different cages?

Thanks,

Tia

The Prevue Hendryx F40 is a great cage for two budgies.
Measurements are:
31" Long x 20" Wide x 45 High (interior) 27,900 cubic inches
53 inch height including the stand

I have Seffra and Samara in an F40 right now.
Peachy has one all to himself and Pedro and Poppy have one of their own.

The 20 inches is really the depth front to back, I guess it depends on how you have the cage turned as to why they say that is the width. FaeryBee has given the correct dimensions just imagine it as 31 inches side to side and 20 inches front to back. I have 4 of them and have 2 birds in each.

Thanks Deborah and Cody! That makes more sense now! Currently I have some things that I'm selling to get a bit of extra cash for the cage, so once they sell, I think I can order it! I'm very excited and hopeful.

Tia,

The F040s usually are available at very good sale prices during holidays.

I'm expecting them to be on sale again over Labor Day weekend Sept 3-5 so you may want to keep an eye on Amazon that weekend.

Really?! Even now I was impressed with the price, so if I could get one even cheaper... *cackles* just kidding. Thanks for the info!

Star- I certainly will tell you when I get one!

Hi everybudgie, I am a little disappointed and very sorry to say that I may have to postpone buying an F040 for a while, because I may have to take Mexico to the vet. He is drinking too much water. The avian vet I have close by is really expensive, so I might have to wait until thanksgiving for the cage, or something like that.
