How to Select the Perfect Bird Cage for Your Feathered Friends

When it comes to pets, birds are the perfect middle ground. They’re less high maintenance than cats or dogs, but they have a lot more personality and are friendlier than fish. As a bird lover, you obviously want your birds to be comfortable and well cared for in their cages. Of course, the type of cage you’ll need will depend greatly on the type of bird you own. Larger birds will require more space than smaller ones, for instance, and if you travel a lot, you’ll need a traveling cage for ease. Let’s have a brief look at how you can select the perfect cage.

Flight cages (aviaries)

Aviaries have large widths or heights and allow your birds to flit around as they please. These can be made of iron, but acrylic bird cages are making quite a splash, since they can allow for greater visibility, and are easier to move around if the need arises.

Playtop cages

This is the cage of choice for active birds. Many acrylic models have a built-in playtop in order to allow the bird to interact and play with you and your family outside of the cage.

Dometop cages

Dometown cages are a common sight in old cartoons, with a curved section at the top instead of a rectangular boxy one. This allows for more space within the cage, and is ideal for active varieties of birds with a preference for climbing or flight. In the past, these used to be made out of iron, but acrylic options are gaining steam as well.

Features to keep an eye out for

Make sure to select a cage with safety features in order to ensure your bird’s safety, and to prevent it from escaping. Apart from safety features like latches, there are other aspects you should keep an eye out for that will allow for greater convenience.

Large access doors: These allow for easier access for cleaning purposes. Look for cages with large doors or front panels that can be easily removed or opened.

Easily accessible feeder doors: Most acrylic bird cages will have an option of individual doors where you can easily and conveniently mount your bird’s water and food dishes. These swing open easily in order to let you feed your bird without having to resort to leaving the cage wide open and allowing it a chance to escape.

Built-in seed guards: These will keep your floor from being absolutely littered by your bird’s food and waste.

Extra accessories: Most acrylic bird cages will also contain starter accessories like food and water dishes, as well as perches. The accessories should suit the bird, so look for smaller diameter perches for smaller birds, or chew-proof dishes for larger ones, for instance. Try to purchase a cage that was made keeping  your particular bird species and size in mind, so that you’ll be able to find accessories that come in suitable construction and size as well.
