Your bird’s cage is his castle and where he will be spending most of his time. So, it’s important that you provide a cage that is comfortable, safe, and entertaining.

When shopping for bird cages, there are a lot of things you need to take into consideration. This includes and is not limited to: the cage size and shape, material, door type, cage bottom, playtop safety, and for the sake of your wallet, price and transportation.

Cage Features

For your own reference, and so you will know that the parrot cage we recommend really is the best for your bird, we have outlined the most important cage features you need to take into consideration when shopping for a parrot cage on your own.

The table below shows the recommended cage size and bar spacing depending on the size of your pet bird. The highlighted row contains the recommended specifications for large pet birds. So, while you’re looking, keep in mind that these cage sizes are the absolute minimums and bigger is always better (just make sure the bar spacing is right as well).

Cage Size Recommendations

Reviews

“I recommend this to anyone who is looking for a well built cage for a large parrot. I put it together myself and it is so easy to clean. A cage pretty much the same size and sturdiness at a pet store sells for over $1000.00. I highly reccommend this if you’re in the market for one. I love it.” – L. Dunlop

“This cage is amazing! I knew right away “Burdie” liked her house and the space it provided. The price was the best I found anywhere and the delivery time was just as stated. The side feeding and water bowls are great for not having to open the door while changing the bird cage. I would definitly recommend this to anyone with a large breed bird.” – Casey J. Chandler

“I bought this cage for my 15-year old Blue and Gold Macaw. He’s not a destructive guy, so this particular model works well for him. However, if you have a destructive macaw or cockatoo, this is not the cage for your bird as the wire is very thin and easily bent. Overall, I was pleased with the price and the cage is exactly as pictured.” – pate281

Reviews

“This cage is well built, heavy duty, has a nice finish (I chose the Sage color) and my Congo African Grey parrot LOVES it. Features I especially like… The variety of colors that Prevue’s cages offer are very pleasing and complement most decor. The cage is well constructed and the metal is substantial without appearing “heavy”. It went together easily. It is large and roomy for the bird. The easy outside access, non spillable, food and water dishes will be a godsend for timid petsitters. The seed guards and easily cleanable droppings trays, keep mess to a minimum. The playtop is a great place for a bird to spend time outside the cage, high enough for it to feel safe enough to relax, and to give it a grand view from which to peruse it’s surroundings, low enough for even a short owner (I’m 5’1″) to be able to deal with the bird and its needs easily. The bars are set to allow the parrot to move easily through the cage – even using the top to hang upside down… yet are spaced close enough together (3/4″) that there can be no unexpected nips to anyone passing by. I think this is a great cage at an affordable price. I would recommend it as a Happy choice.” – Melani Darrell

“Great cage for the price. Very sturdy for my Grey. Castors roll easily. Only thing I wish it had was a door for a breeding box. Very easy to assemble by yourself.” – Sharon Butz

Reviews

“This cage is an excellent value! I have been looking for parrot cages locally and found that smaller cages were going for the same price as this larger cage. The bottom line, literally, is that is a great cage and a great value!” – William F. Mansey

“I have to say, this is by far the best purchase I have made on Amazon to date. Worth every single penny I paid, and then some. It is large and roomy, and the two African Grey Parrots are THRILLED with their new house. If you are on the fence about this one, hop off of it and order! You will NOT be disappointed. The one and ONLY thing I could have wanted in addition to this cage would have been better assembly instructions. The ones provided were sadly lacking. It absolutely takes two people to assemble this. The parts to this cage are quite bulky until you get enough of it assembled to allow it to support it’s own weight, so do yourself a favor and invite a friend to help. Other than that, I could not be happier with this cage.” – Patricia A. Rabbitt
