Default Flight Cage or Normal Cage?

Hello!

So I'm getting ahead of myself by A LOT, but I have the weaning cage set up for little Bucky as his feathers are starting to come out of their sheaths and once he's all feathery and beautiful he will move into their. So it will probably be another 2 months or so until I actually need to buy a cage.

But what the biggest differences and advantages between flight cages and just normal cages? I prefer the look of the normal cages and as Bucky was hand reared he would be out of the cage a lot.

I always just thought that the flight cages looked uncomfortable for the budgies since they had more room horizontal rather than vertical.

Thoughts? Opinions?
I've got my eye on a few cages at the moment so I'd like to know what people think!

Thank you!

If you have a choice, I'd say flight cage is the best because it's bigger. Horizontal space is always best, since they don't fly vertically. If your bird will be out of the cage much of the time, then it doesn't matter as much.

I think flight cages are the best.
In my opinion, the bigger the cage the better, no matter how much out-of-cage time your budgie gets.
I have Prevue Hendryx F040 flight cages for my birds and even single budgies in a cage that size utilize all of the space and love having that amount of room. All of my birds get several hours of out-of-cage time each day.
