Fold 'n Go Travel Cage
Good for Cockatiels Too
I bought this as a holding cage for my cockatiel for when he is loose in the house and I need to set him aside somewhere secure for a few minutes. I've found this cage is wonderful for time-outs and short breaks throughout the day. I like to keep my bird with me throughout the house and it is a breeze to move this with me from room to room compared to lugging his standard cage around. Now he is in and out of this throughout the day and only gets put in his standard cage for longer breaks and night time.
Despite being intended for larger birds the bar spacing is just fine for him, not too big and not too small. The size of the cage in general is excellent too. I wanted something compact but more than the bare minimum space needed and it fits the bill perfectly. It's a nice "in between" size; not too cramped but smaller than any standard cage. I swapped out one of the metal bowls for other accessories (though there is room for both bowls and toys together) and even then there's still plenty of space for him to move about and choose different sides to climb to.
The cage is compact enough that it fits easily on top of a kitchen table or a desk, and it's lightweight so moving it around and placing it on things is very convenient. Everything locks into place securely (bowls, bottom tray, etc) so there is no shifting while carrying, and it's sturdily constructed so I don't have to worry about any buckling or it randomly folding down.
I shopped around online for a while before deciding on this one. Great price for the value and it suits my needs perfectly. To any other cockatiel owners who might be on the fence because of size/bar spacing issues rest assured. I took the leap and this is a great holding cage for them! So glad I got it!

Easy to use and durable
I have this cage for 13 yrs now. I use it mainly as a vacation cage for my summer home for my mexican red headed amazon. I changed the perches and feeder cups to rope perches and egnormic perches that have a feeder attached to make more room for my amazon to move. It so far has standed the test of time and countless cage cleanings without any paint chipping! It is easy to fold up and lightweight as well! I do not recommend a bigger bird like a Congo african grey which I own as well to be placed in this cage, too small of a confinement for them.

I purchased this travel cage for my Goffin's cockatoo and am completely satisfied with it. It is lightweight, comes with a sturdy perch and quality stainless steel dishes. It is also easy to assemble and disassemble and comes at a very reasonable price.

Easily set up, good size for motor home.
My Eclectus loves this little cage. I added a lixit 16 oz water bottle to keep the mess down. Very easy to clean with the pull out tray! Would recommend this to anyone with a similar sized bird.
