Select Wrought Iron Parrot Cage 30x22x63 (More Colors Available)
This is our favorite cage for medium pet birds. It is a great cage at a fantastic price! While the depth is 2 inches shorter than the recommended minimum, the extra width and height make up for it. This cage is very roomy and has a play top so your bird can spend plenty of quality time outside his cage. Highly recommended!
Select Series wrought iron cages include 2 solid wood perches, pull out drawer and bottom grille, 4 stainless steel cups, top playpen and seed guards. The cage comes in a non-toxic, powder coated finish for elegance and durability. The seed guards have rounded corners and the bottom grille and tray remove quickly for easy cleaning. Wire spacing is 3/4″. Cage Dimensions: 30″L x 22″D x 63″H.
“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

Wrought Iron Bird Cage Play-top on Wheels 24x22x63 (More Colors Available)
“This is a handsome, carefully designed, and sturdily made cage that makes a perfect home for any parrot from the “large end” of small to medium. The powder-coat finish is thick and tough. (It looks like a heavier-duty, shinier version of the enamel-type finishes on many major kitchen appliances. It’s definitely too hard for birds to mar with their claws and beaks.) Everything has been designed for easy access and cleaning. Compared to the two cages I had, the new ones make cage cleaning as close to a pleasure as it is ever likely to get: nothing sticks stubbornly to the finish. The bottom tray sits a good 8 inches below the grate, so even the most inquisitive parrot can’t get into the mess below. This is also an extremely safe cage. There is no filigree in which claws or other body parts can get snagged.
The latches are simple to operate but impossible for a bird to manipulate from inside: you have to turn the latch through an arc of 180 degrees before you can slide it open (no parrot inside has enough latitude to do this: the bar spacing makes it impossible for the bird to push the latch more than about 25 degrees). The best thing of all is that my birds (Indian ringneck and Meyer’s) love their new homes. They seem to prefer their topside playgrounds to former play areas — which makes it much easier to keep an eye on them. The interior has room enough to arrange plenty of toys and perches without any sense of crowding.
Although each cage weighs more than 40 pounds, the casters make for effortless movability (the ride is so smooth that my birds don’t even get flustered when I do it slowly). All told, this cage is a veritable palace for parrot safety and happiness. I doubt that I’ll ever need to replace such splendid accommodations. “ – boldsworthington
“This is the best birdcage I have ever purchased. It was so inexpensive! It is extremely sturdy and well-made. I bought this cage for my Amazon Parrot. It is a perfect fit for him. It comes with plenty of bowls. I did add perches. The tray is so easy to clean. The doors close securely. It was a little tough to put together. I don’t know how other companies can get away with charging so much for cages.” – Michelle Pantaleo
