Default Too small?

Hi! Been a while 😂 I was going to breed my budgies again, but instead of one pair i was going to breed three. I have been buying all the stuff in and now getting the cages. I came across this
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Kookaburra-...3475532&sr=8-1
It is supposedly suitable for budgies according to the company and its on their website too. My concern is its actually too small. Obviously the nest box attaches outside rather than in so it would mean OK length, my worry is the depth and height are too tight. Advice appreciated

If my conversions are correct, those cages are much too small, even with the center divider taken out. They are meant for really small birds like finches and canaries.

The cages with the dividers are much too small.

They are 60 x 25 x 32 cm which converts to only
23.6" x 9.8" x 12.3 "
If/When you put the divider in you are going to end up with a VERY tiny cage at 11.8 x 9.8 x 12.3

I would not recommend that you go with anything smaller than the ones shown in the links below for one pair of budgies:
