Wrought Iron Cage w/ Cart Stand Victorian Cage Color: Hammertone Black
Best I've Seen
I see this not as a cage, but as the home our 'tiel will live in for his entire 23 year life. The material and finish are both awesome. The layout is great. I would recommend this again and again. It was packed very well and was easy to assemble.
It is important to note that the sides of the cage have horizontal bars while the front and back are vertical. Our 'tiel is only three months old and doesn't have the strength to climb the vertical bars yet.
There was one issue I found in the design. There is a horizontal opening the entire length of the door at the top and bottom. My bird's tail got stuck as he was sliding down the front and he needed some assistance to get free. I did a quick mod' and that won't be a problem again.
What would I change: The feed cup doors do not have solid locking mechanisms. So, they make some noise when he's moving about. This would be a great cage for an older owner that may not have the grip-strength. The plastic bottom tray needs to have color options. Rather than white (grey?) I wish it was the same color as the bars.
Just get this cage. Your bird (and you) will love it!

Love this cage!
Ordered this for my Cockatiel. It has plenty of space even if I added another bird. Opens at the top and over the door as well. 3 feed cups so we can put treats/perishable food in a separate cup. Easy to clean. Took a bit over an hour to put together. Love that the feed cups are brought in/out from the outside of the cage. Anyone can birdsit that isn't comfortable putting their arm in to take out the feed cups. The company sent extra parts as well. One of the perches was damaged but Foster & Smith sent a new one within 10 days. Very pretty cage that will fit in most any decor.

Bought this cage for my Senegal and it is absolutely perfect. I was going to just buy one already set up and pay A LOT more but my husband said not an issue to put it together in trade for the huge savings.
When it arrived I was so excited and wanted to put it together. Upon opening the box, I was a intimidated and I immediately put all parts to the side and figured I would wait for my husband to do it over the weekend as we discussed BUT I could not wait to see my little Kiwi inside this adorable cage. So I decided to go for it and it was set up with perches and toys and Kiwi inside in under 2 hours :) I was very proud of myself.
I chose this particular one because of the drop down "balcony door" feature at the top. My African Grey's King cage has it and it is very handy. I also liked that it is the same shape as my Grey's cage.
It is easy to clean and surprisingly, very easy to assemble.
Overall, I am very impressed with the quality of the cage for the very low price tag and so glad I went this route. I've seen this cage already assembled at pet shops for close to $300. I found this to be a STEAL and that's always a good thing.
