Default Would Harry like a bigger cage?

Harry is my only budgie. I've had him for 4 1/2 months. He lives in a PH 25212 which is 23wide x 19 deep x 24 high. He has three levels of perches and he uses every bit of the cage. He does fly vertically as well as horizontal and flies around quite a bit.

My biggest concern is him getting enough exercise because at the snail's pace he's going with taming it will be a long time before he gets to fly around the room.

I am considering getting him a PH F040. Going from 6 cubic ft to 15 cf would give him a lot more room to fly and go for adventures.

Do you think he has enough space? Would a F040 be an overkill for one budge?

A bigger cage is always better, no matter how many birds you have

If you're in a good place financially go get him a bigger cage, like the F040, it's definitely worth it and you should go for it

Bigger is always better! If I could fit an F040 in my apartment I would get one in a heartbeat.

I freed up just enough floor space in my little apt. The mansion is on the way.

Good choice, I have 4 of them. When it arrives you will have to put it together and it is easier if you have someone that can help you hold things together as you tighten the screws. You will see that the cage has 4 spring loaded doors on the side, you may want to secure them shut with something so your bird cannot push it open and get out or gets his head stuck.

Glad to hear you decided to go with the F040.
You certainly won't be sorry and Harry is going to LOVE having the space.
It is definitely *not* overkill for one budgie. I have a couple of F040's with only one bird in each of them.

Thanks all. I've been pondering this for quite a while now. I guess it took the forum's blessing to click on 'buy it now'. I'm excited for arrival tomorrow.

We'll be looking forward to seeing the cage once you have it all set up and Harry has moved in!

The cage came yesterday and I got it assembled. Today we do the scary task of getting Harry to go in it.
