Please help me decide on a new cagefor Blue?!

Post by Poochletty » Mon Feb 04, 2008 9:30 pm

OK. I need to buy a bigger cage for Blue. I have about 1 week to decide on one. The measurements are in inches. I'm leaning toward the first cage because the interior dimensions are pretty big (32 wide x 22 deep x 46 tall), it looks very safe, and it is attractive. I really like the play area on top. I think the corner one is convenient but it is half the living space for my baby (24 deep on each side x 39 arched front x 44 tall). And the open top one is great (36 wide x 30 deep x 66 tall)... except I'm only 5 ft 4 in tall, so how do I reach to open it? Open it is 72 inches tall. What do you guys think? I would love a few other opinions. The prices are so close that they aren't a factor at all.

i think the first is better,
the second has small space and the third is good too but how do you open it? :)

I like the first one, because it has a fixed playarea, compared to the ones we open manually and insert a perch... Parrots have been known to get hurt on those... Paulie uses something similar to the last one, but I don't open the cage top, and it has a lock on it so Paulie can't open it himself.

The new one I bought for Cory (Corella) looks like the first one with dimensions of 40x30x74 in inches. Cory doesn't use the playarea, yet. Hopefully one day he will.

I like the bottom one, but I really prefer dometops anyway. xD

I just wouldn't use the open top, that's all. I'm 5'1", lol, so I can't even reach Hane if he gets to the outside on top of his cage as it is. :?

Playtops take away space from the cage, to me, and Hane loves climbing across the bars (from the inside) on top. :D

But if you want a playtop, then get the first one. :)
I've been called 'birdbrained' before, but somehow I don't think this is what they meant. say:hah-nay

Not really knowing , but here is my two pennies worth...
I would choose the biggest or widest if the Alexies wing span is any thing to go by.
Good luck on picking, I am sure which ever one you choose the birdies will adore it :D

Thanks for all of the great advice and opinions. I decided to go with the first one. I really like the play area on top. I ordered it and now I'm anxiously awaiting it's arrival. I know Blue will love it. Now I plan to build him a lovely tree to play on as well. He's gonna be a spoiled birdy! Haha.
