Default Cage size/ Bar spacing?

I want to save up and get my birds a huge cage so I can possibly have bigger/more birds in the future. I have found a cage that's in my price range and its very big. The only downfall is the spacing is .8 inches.. Are there cages on the market that are big with appropriate bar spacing under $100? And is there a posiblility of haveing a cage too big?

Bar spacing should not be any bigger than half an inch. Any bigger than that and you risk budgie injury.

Can't really have a "too big" cage, but I found my Prevue Hendryx F040 on amazon for just over $100. Maybe you could save up a bit more and get that? I know many members here have them. I have 2 and I believe FaeryBee has 4! I love mine, and so do the birds!!!


Here's a link to that cage:

Amazon.com : Prevue Pet Products Wrought Iron Flight Cage with Stand F040 Black Bird Cage, 31-Inch by 20-1/2-Inch by 53-Inch : Birdcages : Pet Supplies


Hope this helps!!!

That looks great actually! I'm sure just a little more saving and I could get it. Thanks for the help!

Hi, Danielle --

Kristen's given you good advice.
With cages, bigger is always better as long as you ensure the spacing between the bars is no more than 1/2".

I have four of the F040 cages at this time.
(I did have 5 but donated one to the Animal Shelter. )

Just make sure you clip the spring lock side doors closed when you use it.
