In general, the larger and the more active the bird, the larger the cage one should use. The amount of time the bird will spend in the cage each day is also a factor. A bird that is caged most of the time requires far more space than a bird caged only at night.

SOURCE: What's your problem?Our bird cage finish is chipping. Can I paint it myself?

My recommendation is to call the manufacturer for paint recommendations and, believe it or not, some cage manufacturers will do that for you. In any event, you must make sure the paint is nontoxic since most birds do scratch it with their beak. After painting Make sure you let it dry completely: Permit the paint to dry for at least 48 hours before moving your bird into the cage, so be prepared to have a secondary cage on hand. Also you should know that although paint may be nontoxic when dry, there are paints may be harmful to your bird if inhaled, so paint it as far as you can from your birds, outdoor area preferred.

How many toys should be in my bird's cage at a time?


The amount of toys varies according to the size of the cage. You will need to ensure that there is enough room in the cage for your bird to extend its wings and move freely. I would recommend using between 3-4 toys at a time. Keep in mind that it is a good idea to have extra toys set aside and to rotate them to keep your bird from becoming bored.

In regards to bird cages, why is bar spacing so important? As long as the bird cannot fly out, then why does it really matter?


Inappropriate bar spacing can ultimately lead to injuring your bird. A cage where the bar spacing is too large could be hazardous to your bird, while a small distance between spacing will limit your birds view and also your view of your bird.

When it comes to bird cages, why is size so important?


Cage size is a very crucial element in regards to proper bird care. The tail of your bird should never touch the back or bottom of the cage when sitting on their perch. A very general rule to follow is that the width of the cage should be at least 1-1/2 times as wide as your bird's wingspan. Keep in mind that it is not just your bird(s) inhabiting the cage but you will need a perch and most likely some toys. My personal recommendation is to buy the largest cage you can afford.
