Cage interior should be large enough for your bird to stand, move freely, and spread her wings.
Large birds require a living area at least 1.5 times their adult wingspan in width, depth, and height.
Small birds thrive in a flight cage, such as the Large Economy Flight Cage.
Cage should accommodate accessories without crowding your bird.
Space between bars must be narrow
enough to prevent injury and/or escape, while still encouraging climbing, flying, or play.
Ideal bar spacing Look for the bar spacing symbol near each cage. It indicates the amount of space between bars.
