Question Suggestions about little birdie's travel cages

Hi everyone,
Hope y'all are doing all well. This is my third time trying to post this as don't know what happens that the page would reload and log me out. So hopefully this time it'll post. Anyways, I was looking for travel cage for my little birdies (3 budgies) and I found some that I like and are affordable. Need your suggestions about cage that you think is best. If the cage is too small then I might buy 2 of them instead of 1 because in future I'll have 1 more budgie joining us but not soon yet. I usually take them out for Vitamin D whenever sun comes out and is not cold outside so its very hard to take their whole cage out. So here are the cages that I found are good listed below:
1. https://jet.com/product/Prevue-Pet-P...733fda4f17b9cc

2. https://www.amazon.com/LARGE-PURPLE-...rd+travel+cage (I used to like this but now its my least favorite as on this forum most of the members have advised to avoid round top cages so I thought even if this is travel cage I should avoid that too if that's the case).

3. In small size: KT62311 Take Me With Cage Small - CARRIERS
In Medium size: KT62313 Take Me With Cage Medium - CARRIERS

Can't wait to see hear from you guys. Can't wait to get these for my little birdies. Lots of love from Sweet pea , Rio & Picu (Yellow budgie).

I've had some experience with a couple of them.

#2 You can see how thin the plastic is where the rounded part meets the base. That was what broke on one, so I threw it out--no way to repair it.

#3 I have one similar to the ones in number 3. I've used the larger one for two cockatiels and they were perfectly happy in there. Here's the one I have:
https://www.amazon.com/Kaytee-Travel...rd+travel+cage

It's larger for the same price.

I have the #1 (prevue pet small) just got it and will use it for first time this weekend to bring Rocky to his sitter as we are going away but I would not put 2 birds in it to small unless for a short ride also not a lot is space (hight) between the perch and the top of cage not .Rocky is still a baby so still tiny so it's ok but not sure about an adult budgie unless u don't use the perch that come with it .

Personally, I use small cages as travel carriers for my birds.

Something along the lines of this one which is only
14"L x 10.5"W x 18" high is perfect and inexpensive:

Thank you so much everyone. All these suggestions really helped me a lot cutting down other options that I had. Also wanted to know what you guys think of Hagen's Vision Bird Cage in S01 as a travel cage if anyone of you have that or had that? I think this will also be easy holding it and putting in the car etc. Not sure as currently I've 3 budgies. I'm sorry about asking this as I think I've asked about affordable travel cage in my post but as my siblings likes the hagen's one for traveling so needed to know how do you like or think about that cage. Thank you. Much appreciated.

Well thanks for sharing that discussion JRS. But my question is totally different as I was asking about that product in small size (SM 01 or SM 02) for traveling aspect if any one has used that product in small size for traveling. So that discussion isn't for me for that reason. But thanks again.

Ok, I've come back to update!
Funnily enough, I've just picked up a second hand S02, as I needed a travel (& maybe a quarantine cage).
As a double height, it is just a little too tall to sit on a car seat, so certainly too tall to place on a lap. As a single height, I think it will be great. You could put 3/4 budgies in there for a short journey but if you were thinking to also use it for a couple of hours in the sunshine daily, then I think you need the two cages.

Okay thanks. For taking out of the apartment (we have place outside of our apt to place their cage for sunlight) I will use the cage they're using it right now. In future planning to replace their current cage to L02 but before that I'm going to buy flight cage for them. I wanted to know about S01 for taking them to lake with us for sunlight. But thanks for letting me know this. Yes I do know S02 is extremely tall which isn't necessary for traveling.

How do you put your birds inside this travle cage? I'm thinking to get different one from petsmart even that cage is tall which we dont like that its huge but the cage you mentioned has top opening door which I didn't know earlier just find out yesterday seeing on google, I'm afraid transfering them to this cage aould be difficult as my birdies would fly everywhere in our lounch as they did 2 times before as they were scared a little when that happened while
I was putting their food dish inside their everyday cage. If you have solution about transferring them to this specific cage you have mentioned please do share. Will appreciate it. Thank you.
