Cage Size Guide
The most important item needed before your feathered friend comes home is a cage. Even birds that come out of the cage to socialize spend a large part of the day in their cage.
Some helpful hints when considering a cage:
Bigger is better, as long as the spacing between the bars is narrow enough to prevent injury if the bird tries to escape.
The bird's head should not be able to fit between the bars.
The door needs to be large enough to comfortably put your hand through, catch the bird, remove the bird, and replace the bird.
The latch on the door needs to be escape-proof since the bird is going to have a lot of time to figure a way to open it. Some owners place a clip or a padlock on the door of their escape artist's cage.
Check bar spacing and perch diameter best suited for your bird.
If you buy your bird from a pet store, the size they'll recommend will probably be the minimum size for that species of bird. Your bird will be much happier with a more spacious cage.
Species cage hints:
Parakeets like to move around and should have a cage that is tall and wide. Canaries and finches like to fly and should have a cage that is wide and long to allow for flight. Cockatoos need a cage that is big enough so the crest on the head fits without being crushed. Macaws need a cage that is big enough so their long tail fit without being crushed.
Does shape matter?
Square or rectangular cages are easier to clean and safer for the bird. As the number of corners in the cage increases, the flight area is decreased and the connecting edges decrease safety. A rounded cage is appropriate from the safety standpoint, but will not privide as much space as a square or rectangle.
