Default I dont think im looking in the right place

For cage information I would like to get a very large cage for my boys once the fighting has completely stopped and they go back to normal

I'm almost positive on a site like this that the information about this has already been given

Currently the one starting the fights is in a regular sized flight cage (its my spare cage I keep for emergencies or whatever I think at least having two cages has been smart for me)

The main cage is three feet tall give or take some inches, a little over a foot thick by a little over a foot wife and it's not as wide as my regular sized flight cage so there's definitely allot to be desired for flying room for my birds specially with my issues with Hyde's whole teams from being in a birds mouth I don't think he's recovered from

What I would like for them is a cage about five feet tall range and by a couple of feet wide...like I want a strong, huge and durable cage that would beyond suit their needs

I'd really like advice from people who hunted down large cage suitable for budgies as to cage size, bar spacing, brands and what not

Thank you and if you have pictures of cage decorations I'm currently getting new crates, beds for the dogs and probably some new toys for the pups right now out of all the animals the dogs need new stuff first

The point of asking is that I'm on this facebook page and I seen someone had 4 budgies in a cage about half the size of mine in height maybe its a little shorter, it's about an inch or so half the thickness of my large one and just a little wider...the more I look up large cages for budgies the more I'm disappointed with cage options that show up in a general google search and that people are putting multiples in cages....in my opinion...that are too small

Maybe I'm just not looking up the right things online as far as shopping...I definitely can't walk into my local pet store (most are mom and pop or large corporate pet stores) and get a cage I'm looking for I spent like 4 hours last night looking at obnoxiously large cages and I just got confused on which ones would be appropriate for my little budgie boys and to what I want

This is a very popular cage, are you in the USA? I have 4 of these and have 2 birds to a cage, when they are all out for play time they are free to go in and out of each others cage.

I'm a huge fan of the Pet Prevue cages. There are two big sizes that a lot of members here use.

The F040 and the F050 (Same design, just bigger)

Flight Bird Cage - Black F040 Prevue Pet Products

Large Flight Bird Cage F050 Prevue Pet Products


The bar spacing is 1/2 inch, it comes with food and water dishes, and wooden perches. Rollers on the bottom so the cages are easy to move around and clean underneath.

I have the large F050's for my birds, and I wouldn't trade them for anything else!

I think one of those would suit my boys I do like the width though of those dumb question how do you clean them? I actually live in Michigan lol but I normally strip the current cages and take them to the bathroom with a scrub brush I like doing it outside in the summer and spring there's just something nice about letting something air dry in the sun...I think cleaning is a dumb question because that would be larger than my rats cage which is fairly large but that breaks down so it makes it easy to scrub down in the winter and my doves cage is fairly large but that would even be larger than his cage (the doves more mellow than my budgies so I like letting him out more than his in cage time...bigger would be nicer for the budgies since they spend more time in the cage....I don't know if that sounds mean or not I hope not)

Cleaning advice would be nice too though for something that large

The links Cody and PoukieBear provided give you the information for the cages I have for all my birds.

I have both the F040 and F050.
I highly recommend purchasing the F050!

It's best to remove the wooden dowel perches that come with the cages and replace them with natural wood perches of differing diameters.

https://talkbudgies.com/housing-budgi...reat-cage.html

https://talkbudgies.com/articles-budg...ure-sores.html

I use newspapers on top of the bottom cage grate and they are changed twice a day - morning and night.

Daily I wipe down the cage and toys with pure white vinegar.
There are doors on the sides of the cage that make it easy to access the back corners.

Cleaning the cages daily makes it quite easy as there is no build up of any type of mess on them.

The bottom of the cage has a plastic tray that slides out. I lay paper down on it and change it every day (Super easy!) and once a week I wipe down the entire bottom tray and the grate above it with hot water. The cage bars are super easy, just wipe them down with a hot cloth. Because the bars are metal, the poop comes right off with hardly any effort.

Once springtime comes, I take the cages outside and power wash them to get into every nook and cranny. I'll do this really late in the fall season too, right before it gets too cold to do so.

Just in case you were looking for something with thicker wires, it's very hard to come by for budgies. The larger heavy duty cages seem to all have a bar spacing greater than the max 1/2 inch that is safe for budgies.

Also, just in case you prefer white, there is now a Prevue F041 that is exactly like the F040, but in white. Harder to come by at the moment and currently more expensive as well.

Cleaning shouldn't be difficult. Every so often, we mix lemon juice, hot water, and baking soda and clean the cage out with it. It works well and doesn't appear to harm him or the cage. I can give you the recipe if you want it.

I do like the F050 I think it was called after the dogs are some I'm gonna start setting money aside for that and an improved set up the set up they have now is okay until I get everything together
