HQ Wrought Iron Flight Cage w/ Cart Stand Flight Cage Color: Black
Beautiful and solid and easy to put together
I have ordered cages before and this cage is well made, looks good and very solid. I am 70 years old and a female and had no trouble putting it together.
Nothing negative to say about this cage what so ever.

This product is amazing! I use it for my 4 budgies. It shipped in roughly 1 week because I'm from Canada but that wasn't a big deal. My main concern was the price because it totalled to $200 and over with taxes which was a bit high but it was the only HQ Flight Cage available in Canada so I bought it. It's sort of easy to assemble and takes about 1 hour with 2 helpers. I would recommend this product and the color I recommend is black.

Great versatile cage
This cage is easy to assemble and rolls from room to room very easily. The size is great for small to medium size birds and the two doors provide excellent access to the birds. It has room for many toys, swings, and perches to keep my birds entertained. We put corner shelves in it to encourage our birds to rest at night by distributing their weight evenly on the shelf instead of the perches. It's a great value for the price.

Like a Condo
I really thought this cage was a bit smaller. However, I'm not disappointed. My husband and I put the cage together in probably less than an hour. Yes, the directions were more 'visual pictures' than text but with a couple of changes we got it right. What can I tell you to help you put it together? One, on the top bars of the cart, there are tabs. Be sure the tabs are in the upright position and the bars are set so those tabs are on the inside of the cart's frame. Reason? When you set the erected cage on top the cart, these tabs keep the cage in place and from sliding off the cart. When you get to the point of setting the cage on top the cart, you'll see what I'm talking about. Two, if you are not sure how to set the front and back of the cage: the doors on the front open on the left. Once you have that right, match the back of the cage to line up with the front. Finally, don't tighten any of the screws until you know that you have it right. ;)
How does the birdie like it? Max, our green cheek conure took to it straight away. Although, it did take him about a week to feel like he could move through it comfortably based on where we located perches, food, toys, etc. He's in it by himself and has more room to move and play. He was in a cage that was about 1/4 of the size. I also kept watch on his movements to see where he might have problems maneuvering so I could re-align perches, etc.
I can't say enough good things about it. There are a couple of sharp edges and for now we just put some scotch tape over them until we can take care of them. The tray and bottom grate slide out nicely. The tray is a snug fit. Use caution with the grate, it slides easily. You don't want to squeeze a bird between the frame of the cage and the back edge of the grate should it slide out a bit when you move the cart around. As far as cleaning the grate and cage: surprisingly easy. I use vinegar water and paper-towel for quick clean ups and messes wipe up like cleaning a teflon pan. Seriously quick and easy. PS- "White" is actually a steel gray and I think I like it better than a white anyhow, for this size.
Effectively, you could house 3 or 4 GC Conures. Maybe more if you wanted but Max loves his new condo all by himself. So do I, as I find it a lot easier to put him in and take him out of it. The doors are great too!
