Cockatiel living space
I need to know if a cockatiel can fit in a 16×14 inch cage. The cage is about 17 inches tall. I have had experience with other birds (as pets) in my house. Keep in mind that this bird would spend up to 6 hours out of its cage everyday.
We don’t usually recommend keeping a Cockatiel in a cage smaller than 18x18x18″. A 16×14 cage would work, but is not ideal. With a cage this small, it is good that he or she will be out of the cage for 6 hours everyday, so if you can be sure to make that a priority, then it should be fine. 🙂
