“A great value and came recommended from a friend who has it as well. The size is good for our small apartment, and it’s lightweight and easy to handle, clean, etc.” – J. Aho

“Have had this cage for about 6 months now. Had no problem putting it together, everything fit tight and secure. Great size for a budgie, plus we can still move the cage around the house easily (to take him outdoors or to another room). It is quick and easy to clean. The covers that fit over the top of the food and water dish keep them clean as well. Wish it was more of a natural colour, other than the white, but other than that I love the cage! “ – Lynn G.

“This cage is perfect for small birds. I like the overall look/design and the fact that it’s black so you can ‘see’ the birds better against the black wire. The three small sliding doors work very well and the food containers have covers on them to keep out bird mess, etc. (a nice-to-have). The larger door that swings open is great too for rearranging perches, toys, etc. This cage also cleans easily. With the birds still in the cage, you simply ‘squeeze’ the cage off the plastic base and set it aside. Then clean the base, droppings tray and floor grid separately in the sink, then reverse the process to put it back together. Overall, a nice buy.” – Sal B

“This cage did not come with assembly directions but was easy for this girl to assemble by following the picture, only needed a screw driver. The cage is not attached to the stand which makes it easy to take along as a carrier. The stand has castor wheels and is easy to move, also lightweight if you need to carry down steps. The large door makes filling food and water bowls easy. Highly recommend this product.” – Margie Wilson

“This is a great cage for the price. We looked at several other cages at local and nationwide pet stores, all at a much higher price and they did NOT include the stand. The cage was super easy to put together, took me only a couple of minutes. It is a very nice looking cage, good spacing on the bars, and looks like it will hold up well. Our love bird “Little Peach” is very happy in his new home!” – FloridaMoM

“First thing, this cage is not really black, or wrought iron, as it is described on the box. It looks more like an antiqued, hammered pewter finish. Black can be viewed as a harsh color for a cage, but this is truly an attractive looking bird cage. The pictures just do not do it justice at all.
Secondly, all I can say is OMG! This cage is huge! I took measurements before ordering to make sure I had enough space, but once this thing was put together, wow! I did have enough space, but holding up a measuring tape did not prepare me for being able to truly appreciate the enormity of this cage once it was assembled. My bird looks so darn small in it compared to his old cage. I will definitely be getting him some company. You just cannot purchase a cage of this size for this cheap of a price. And it is very sturdy, way more so than my birds previous one, which was also much smaller and more expensive. I don’t know how good it would be for dexterious birds, for the door latches seem slightly insignificant, but for a flock of finches, parakeets, or doves, it is more than ideal. The amount of space they will have is incredible. You can put a playset in the bottom of the cage, or even on top of it if you regularly let your birds out. And it has doors everywhere. Two large ones on the front, and 3 on each of the 2 sides. I give it five paws, five claws, and more! “
– R. Nowak

“I looked for several weeks for a larger cage for our one parakeet Cloud because we were going to get another parakeet and felt that he needed a bigger cage that allowed for a few toys to hang and just a larger space for him to move and spread his wings. We’re so happy with this purchase because the cage is huge. I definitely think birds need as large of a cage as possible so they can be happier and more mobile. The thing I really like about this cage is that it has wheels on it which makes it easy to move around. It also has a nice pull out bottom tray for easy cleaning. I highly recommend this cage. We looked at local pet stores and at Petco and on many other sites and this seemed to be the most functional cage at a great price. This cage has worked very well for us.” – J. Larsen

“I purchased one of these cages to re-locate one of my rescue birds (Buzz the sparrow) into a smaller cage. He adapted within a day, and has plenty of room to move around. The cage was very easy to set up (5 minutes) and very easy to move around for cleaning. The size is perfect and price was great too. :)” – JLP

“These cages are great for pet ringneck doves. I own a silky orange pied ringneck who likes to spend 90% of his time on the bottom of the cage (as do all doves). I need a cage that has more width than height – this cage works perfectly. It was recommended by a dove breeder, keeper, and enthusiast. The cage is modestly priced so do not expect contstruction suitable for anything more than a dove or small bird. In my opinion, a tropical bird (like cockatiel) would destroy this cage in a relatively short amount of time. The assembly was quick and easy.” – New York Girl
