Default Bar spacing for English budgie?

I am planning on getting an English budgie, and I was wondering if I could get a cage with 3/4 bar spacing for one since they are larger than a standard budgie, I found a cage that seemed good until I noticed it had 3/4 bar spacing, I would like to know if that would be okay or if I should not risk it, I couldn't find much information online about cage specifics for English budgies.

Hi there!

Good thing you asked! No, you cannot get a cage with 3/4 bar spacing for an English budgie. They actually aren't much bigger than American/Aussie budgies, they just have more feathers. They can still get stuck in between larger bars!

Always stick to 1/2 bar spacing for the best bet

Oh okay, thank you! I'm so glad I asked, I would've been devastated if my budgie had gotten hurt and I could've prevented it, I did find a cage that's about the same but has 1/2 bar spacing soon after I posted this, it's a little more expensive but I would gladly pay more for a safer cage.

Definitely 1/2” bar spacing for any and all budgies. Even the largest English you’ve ever seen would still need 1/2” . In fact it is the best size for any “small” birds. Thank you for asking first to make sure.
