I posted in determining gender. Bird is coming Monday. Here is photos of cage (former home of my cockatiel that recently passed on) and the set-up for the english budgie.
Zoo Med Avian Sun Deluxe Floor Lamp w/ 26W Zoo Med Avian Sun 5.0 bulb.
(on timer to go on for 1 hour a day around sun-up)
HQ Victorian Cage. Interior size 27L X 17.5W X 32H.
Will be feeding Higgins Vita seed (used by breeder) and gradually switch to Volkman (1 1/2-2 teaspoons per day), and Roudybush pellets. In addition veggies, grains, egg, some fruit etc. (all the other healthy things).
There is a water tube and a Lixit water bottle next to it. I will switch to water bottle only once bird learns to use it (more sanitary).
Perches of different materials and sizes, and a cuttlebone. A swing and a variety of toys.
Looks good! I hope you disinfected the cage after your cockatiel passed. You don't want to possibly spread disease to your new bird . I would do the light around Midday though because thats when the sun will be brightest in nature. What is the bar spacing? It looks a bit big in the pictures, but that could just be me.
The toys and things look great, and the diet.
One thing I will warn you about is the barrel toy with a bell in it. I had one of these in a past budgies cage, and one day she climbed on it, the barrel rolled and her foot got stuck. Luckily I was there at the time so I was able to free her. Turning the barrel vertically will reduce the risk, but if it were me, I would remove the toy. Of course it is your choice, I just thought I'd give you a heads up.
The cage was thoroughly disinfected. Bar spacing is just under 1/2 inch. I will check with my avian vet in regard to the light since different sites have different opinions on the time of day. I'll watch carefully in regard to the barrel toy and remove it if any signs of a problem.
