Default Big cage for 3/4 budgies

Hello everyone!

In this thread I would like to ask help with selecting a good cage/flight cage for my three baby budgies: Teebo, Yoko and Umi. Yoko is in a quarantene cage so far and Teebo with Umi are in their nice Ferplast Giulietta 6 cage (81x41x64cm) which is more suitable for two birds. Even though I allow birds to do what they want and often leave their cage open, I was thinking to get one bigger cage for all of them soon. In case if I am more busy with my work in the future, they will have enough space to exercise. I know the width is more important than height, but wider I am not able to fit in the living room. Was checking what is available around and selected three different flight cages.

1. Montana Boston 65x56x164 cm (15 mm wire spacing)

2. Montana Miami 90x71x166 cm (15 mm wire spacing)

3. Ferplast Hemmy Large 85x65x165 cm (13mm wire spacing)

All cages are quite nice, Montana attract me very much with the seed cather and with the opening on the top of the cage. Though doors seem bit too big for parakeets. Ferplast Hemmy is a nice one, the cage i have now is made from the same material combination. Which one would you suggest? Thanks a lot in advance for your opinion!

Here are some flight cage suggestions that are large enough.

In these two links, this is a popular and Talk Budgies approved flight cage.

Flight Bird Cage - Black F040 Prevue Pet Products

Large Flight Bird Cage F050 Prevue Pet Products

In the link below, I have this double flight cage in black with a removable divider which might come in handy depending on the situation. The style should be available worldwide, since there are several brands who make this style, also the single version of it.

Double Timbertown Treehouse Bird Cage, Double Bird Cages, Stacked Bird Cages, Breeder Cages, Bird Cages

I like the last cage you show a link to, it's cute. The bar spacing seems fine on that one. Regardless of what spacious cage you choose, please make sure it has no more than 1/2" bar spacing (12.7 mm), I think 13 would be basically 1/2"?.

Thank you RavensGryf, I will consider the bar spacing of 13 mm, strange that i find in many stores cages like montana with bar spacing 15-17 mm which are suggested for budgies. Thank you for the links for the approved flight cages! I will check what is available and suitable for our living room .

RavensGryf has given you some excellent links.

I have both the F040 and F050 cages.
I like the Double Flight Cage RavensGryf has very much as well.

Let us know what you end up deciding to get.

FaeryBee and Birdbaby thanks, I appreciate your suggestions!

It will take some time until I can get the cage though. I got both of my birds (Umi and Teebo) with the cut wings. Now waiting for their first moult to get their wing feathers back. Teebo is already half way, he does shed a lot of feathers now. Umi just started his first moult. Yoko is the only bird which can fly, so far her aviary is our living room.

I am looking at one of this now

I have two of the Canadian version of the Double Critter Nation. Originally intended for small animals (rats, ferrets, etc), they are a popular cage for budgie lovers! It might not be what you are looking for, but just wanted to let you know there are other options

I have 1 of those critter nation cages and I just got a new cage that I love. It's a lot more convenient for feeding than the giant doors on the critter nation cage if I don't have time to gather them in again.

https://m.ebay.com/itm/New-Bird-Parro...%257Ciid%253A4

That's where I found it. It's not quite as wide as the critter nation cage, but only by about 3-4".

All the feeder doors are guillotine style, BUT they have to snap up or down. So your birds definitely can't lift them.

The initial feature of an budgie cage you will need to consider is most likely the size. Budgies are really active and then get almost all of their exercise from flying. If your budgie will spend most of its time in a cage then you should be saving up for a flight cage. You can go for a smaller size if it will be out of the cage for a few hours each day. As they need to be able to fly to be physically and mentally healthy you really want a cage that is longer horizontally rather than a pretty upright, narrow one. Some very pet supplies online like bird cages are nice to consider but won't offer you a decent home for a budgie.

Listed below are some minimum sizes, listing the height x width x length. Any time you mulitply these together you obtain the volume belonging to the cage.

The minimum size for a single budgie would be: 18x18x18 inches, which gives a volume of 5,832" cubic inches
(46x46x46 cm = 97336 cubic cm)

Minimum size for 2 budgies: 30x18x18inches, which gives a volume of 9,720" cubic inches
(77x46x46 cm = 162932 cubic cm)

Minimum size for 3 budgies: 32x18x20 inches, which gives a volume of 11,520" cubic inches
(82x46x51 cm = 201756 cubic cm)

From there you can work out the minimum size by having a volume of 3800 cubic inches (62271 cubic cm) per budgie.
