    Bird Cage - Choosing a Size

    Choosing a bird cage size is fairly different than picking an appropriate size for other pets. You need to make sure that the bird cage is big enough so that the bird has a lot of space; equally it should be small enough for the area in your house that you want it to fit in. For tips on choosing a bird cage size, see the following advice.





    Bird Cages

    • First, you need to ensure that any potential bird cage has enough space for a bird to stretch its wings out and flap them without touching the bars. The cage should be as large as feasibly possible so that your bird has plenty of space. This is important as, unlike some other pets, the bird will spend the majority of its life within the bird cage.

    • Next, you must consider the breed of the bird when choosing a bird cage size. Most of the time it is correct to say that the bigger the bird, the larger the cage should be. However this is not the case all the time. An example of this exception is with finches. Despite their small size, these birds need a large bird cage size as they require more exercise. There are also certain bird breeds that will need a taller cage due to their long tails.

    • By fully checking how much space you have in your house, you can accurately determine the right bird cage size for you.

    • When choosing a bird cage size, if you have any doubts, you should buy one that is larger than what you think it should be. It is much better to have a greater space than to small a space for the bird. There is no such thing as too much room for a bird. The more space, the more possibility of proper exercise and room to learn acrobatics.
