Default Thoughts on new cage?

I was going to buy Holly and Rio a new cage for my birthday, but I've seen this one and now I'm wondering whether it would be better for my birds to move Pip, Dan and Noisy into the new larger cage and move Holly and Rio into the cage that Pip and the 2 boys are in now.

They'll still all be let out together for out of cage time.

Thoughts please?

Rachael,
What is the depth of the cage pictured? That doesn't show on the illustration but you should be able to find it in the description in the link to the cage.

What are the dimensions of the cage you have currently?
Length x Width x Height?

Their cage at the moment is 19x19x30 inches at the moment so I know it's a little small for the 3 of them, their door is open for most of the day so they can get out and stretc their wings.

The base of the cage I'm looking at is square so it is 52x52x130 cm.

Hi Rachael, usually the bigger the better as a rule and budgies are horizontal fliers. This means they tend to fly horizontally rather than vertically. SO the best shape for budgies is a rectangular design.

I'm assuming this one is better then?

Measurements are 81x54x95 cm (without the stand.)

Bar spacing is 10mm so not too wide.

It's a little more expensive but if the birds are happy in there it will be worth the extra money.

Yes, the cage in the second picture is a better choice.

I think that's the one then

Thanks for your help, I will post photos when I have it all set up and they've made the big move.

Rachel, that's a wonderful choice of cage for your budgies. I'm sure they'll be very pleased with it.

We'll be looking forward to seeing the mansion when it is all set up and the budgies have moved in!

Rachael, that looks like an amazing cage and I'm sure the birdies will love it! I can't wait to see it all "outfitted" 'n all
