    Choosing a bird cage type requires you to consider different options that will be suitable for your particular needs. When thinking about buying a bird cage you must bear in mind the health, safety, and growth aspects for the future. For advice on different bird cage types, see the following information.




    Types of Bird Cage

    • First, when choosing a bird cage type, you should buy as large a cage as is possible for the amount of space in your home. The bars should be appropriate for your bird breed. Birds of a smaller size will require bars that have less spacing between them in order to stop them from squeezing through and escaping.

    • The width of the bird cage is also very important as birds normally will fly around laterally rather than up and down. For this reason, it is more beneficial to look into buying wider bird cage types. Birds that are taller in size will need a cage that can accommodate this height, but width is still a key factor.

    • Choosing a bird cage type will also need to you think about the material of the cage. Stainless steel is always preferable to ones made of plastic, as they are much more durable and will last longer. A steel bird cage will also look a lot nicer in your home.

    • Seek out bird cage types which have perches that are situated close to the food and water for the bird. These perches should be appropriate for your specific breed and size of bird. Birds with smaller claws will need perches that have a smaller diameter.

    • Ensure that when you are choosing a bird cage type, the latch on the door is secure and tight enough to prevent your bird from escaping the bird cage.
