I'm looking to get a bigger cage for my budgie Micheál because I'm going to get him a little friend in a couple of weeks. I feel the vision cages will be best space wise for my living room, but unfortunately I can only get them online. I was hoping if anyone had a picture of a vision cages that they could show me so that I have a better understanding how much room it will need? Or if there's similar cages that you would recommend for 2 budgies?
If you decide to get another budgie in the future, please be sure to observe quarantine for the new budgie.
Quarantine means housing the new bird in a different cage in a different room than the current bird (as far away from the room the current bird is in as possible) for a period of 35-45 days.
Budgies mask symptoms when they are ill. Symptoms may not show up for over two weeks.
Often you will not even realize your bird is not well. Many budgie illnesses are airborne which is why you need to quarantine your new bird in a completely different room.
It is also a good idea to always take a new budgie in to see an Avian Vet for a "well-birdie" check-up. This allows you to develop a good relationship with the vet and the vet can establish a baseline for your bird in case of any future illnesses or injuries.
