Large Bird Cages
Large Bird Cages and Bird SuppliesParrots, cockatoos, macaws and other large pet birds require larger bird cages in order to live long, happy and healthy lives. Even smaller birds, like finches and canaries, need ample space to exercise and play. A general rule for buying a bird cage is the bigger the bird, the bigger the cage needed to house the bird. A large bird cage does not have to be expensive: high-quality bird cages typically range from $80-$350 apiece and include accessories like feeder cups, perches, swings and toys. Birds can sometimes be messy, so it’s a good idea to purchase a cage that provides easy cleaning access. Look for removable and/or slide-off panels that will make it easier to clean the litter tray so cage upkeep is less of a chore. The space and orientation of the bars in a bird cage are important to look at when choosing a cage. You don’t want your bird to escape, nor get caught or trapped. Something many new bird owners failure to consider is bar orientation. Parrots, for instance, use their beaks to climb. This makes horizontal bars essential if you’re planning on caring for one of these magnificent birds. Birds that do not use their beaks to climb, like finches, dove and canaries, can live in cages with vertical or horizontal bars as long as the spacing in between the bars is safe for the breed.
