Default New house for my kids!

After 2 months of waiting I finally purchased it cheers!

The cage is enormous I can house another pair if I wanted to. Ferplast Giulietta 5 looks like only 30cm. In this image to me (too much distorsion). I also checked the nooks and crannies of the cage if there are pointy things and I only saw some residue that harmless. I'm going to transfer them this weekend

OOhhhhhh looks fancy! Are you moving the canaries into the budgies old cage? I'm sure all your birdies will love the upgrade. I'd love to see some pictures once you have the cage all set up. By the way, if you are considering getting more budgies, it may be a good idea to read through the following links.

Quarantine IS Necessary!

Additionally it looks like you have straight plastic perches in your canary cage. Canaries just like budgies will benefit from a variety of perches with different diameters to help exercise their feet, promote good circulation and prevent pressure sores.

The new cage looks great!

Once you have it all set up with the perches and accessories with the budgies moved in, please be sure to post updated pictures in this thread.

You've been given excellent advice by iHeartPieds regarding perches for your canaries as well.

Unfortunately the canarie will stay in their original cage. It may still look like great but the wooden cage have some cracks now and I don't want to gamble the safety of the canaries. The former breeder that gave it to me also said that they can stay there if I want to breed them, with his help of course

Yes I will also have to clean some perches and dismantle some old toys to make some new ones can't wait to transfer them to their new house. I was planning to make it spacious to make them move alot but stimulated at the same time mentally. Adding some more budgies will still a no go for the moment but maybe in the future I will. These little guys sure made some secure spot in our family =)

As I promised this is the new setup of my little rascals. They aren't tamed and bit rebellious so I had to catch them and put them inside, after making that angry look to me and that biting they realised they're in a new house lol. Im still recycling the old toys and I don't have many. What I noticed in this enormous cage is it is more solid and really heavy. The bottom is little bit shallow for my taste but doesn't matter since these two stays most of the time up. If there are some suggestions about how and where should I put the toys or perches just tell me im all ears im more than happy to listen and change it =)

The new cage clearly has more space. It will give your budgies more room to move around in. The birds will appreciate it as they use it.

Hi
Congratulations on the new cage, it's looking good.

The slight changes I'd make are:
Until you can get around to replacing the long dowel perch, use it low down in the cage, perhaps at the height of the top of the little ladder.
Make the natural wood forked perch the highest of the perches, as the highest will likely be used more. If needed, you could reposition the rope perch or the flexible section perch to be at a good height to play with the hanging toy.
Also, placing your food container directly beneath a platform perch, will help prevent any poop falling in there.

JRS has offered great suggestions.

I'd add to be sure you trim the fringe on the rope toy(s) to no more than 1/2".
Also, keep a close eye on the budgies to ensure they don't chew the rope on the toy(s) or the rope perch.

Yes and from 35cm depth jumping to 45cm is very wide. The wooden cage is also having problems as it is bit shaking too

Those cages are beautiful! Horizontal bars are so much more pleasing to the eye. Maybe it's because they look like blinds instead of prison bars.

Congratulations!
