Finding the perfect flight cage is easy when you know the recommended bar spacing for your species. Proper spacing ensures your bird stays safely inside her cage and isn't able to wedge a wing or head partially through.

Small Birds: Finch, Canary, Parrotlet, Parakeet, Lovebird
Recommended bar spacing: No more than 5/8"
Medium Birds: Cockatiel, Conure, Lory, Senegal
Recommended bar spacing: 1/2" to no more than 7/8"
Large Birds: African Grey, Amazon, Macaw, Cockatoo
Recommended bar spacing: 3/4" to no more than 1-3/8"

Look for the bar spacing symbol near each cage. Shop for your perfect cage using the bar spacing guide below.
