Prevue Pet Flight Cage Color: Green
overall I like the cage for small birds
When looking for a new bigger cage for a pair of discarded budgies that came in a 15"X10" cage, I was looking for the largest cage I could find to fit a particular spot, while not being overly expensive. This cage fit the bill: reasonably priced, good size, (width, depth and height), for the budgies and fits well in the chosen spot in my living room and the color combo that I chose (black wire, green base) blends well into the room.
I read a review that complained about the difficult instructions for assembly. I received this cage without any instructions, but had no difficulty putting it together.
This cage is a perfect size for my 2 budgies and all of their toys (having a flat top makes hanging toys much easier, and gives more space), while still allowing enough space to freely fully extend their wings and flap, and for short flights from side to side. I don't like the style of perches that came with the cage (personal choice) and swapped them out for natural branch perches. This cage would also be great for a small collection of small finches, again allowing for good flight distance, and roomy size. Although large enough I would not recommend this cage for any small parrot with a beak stronger than that of a cockatiel, the bars strike me as a little flimsy in certain spots where the distance between crossbars is the greatest.
Overall I like the cage, but most important, my budgies seem to be happy in it: large enough to allow for lots of toys and freedom of movement, and small enough for them to still feel secure in it.

Very nice cage for the money, easy to put together although I haven't figured out how to install the (large) door up/down latch, I have it on there to keep it shut but don't have it the correct way till I find out how to do it. Flat roof is great for hanging toys etc, sides have horizontal rungs for easy climbing. Only down side I see is the food/water cups are kinda flimsy, I didn't put on the cover tops of them as I like to see them eat, so the edges of them I had to file very lightly to get rid of some small stray bits of plastic, kinda sharp edges, but some easy smoothing of it will do the trick. Nice cage.

When I ordered this cage it came the next day, so I was very surprised! The cage arrived in great condition and was very easy to put together. I also enjoy the size of it. This cage is the perfect size for my Zebra Finch Olive.

Great cage for great price
I purchased this cage as a "second home" for our parrotlet so he had a safe place on the upper floor of our home, his primary cage being on the ground floor. This cage turns out to be a real favorite place of his when we're all upstairs. He just loves it!
