Bodhi's cage is 30" by 18" by 36". Height with stand is about 64". Bar space is 1/2. It has a large door with a latch. I purchased it locally from a breeder. No brand name on box. Iron/powder coated. Easy assembly... I did it myself with a three year old "helper".

I like the space and the wheels. He seems truly happy with this cage. Being able to move with ease was very important. The tray and grate are much easier to remove than his original cage.

I'm still waiting for a few more perches and toys to arrive... though I don't think I will put many more toys in. I prefer to rotate them out and leave the cage less congested for flying about.


He's rarely in his cage anyway...

Jack the Ripper's Cage



Cage Make: Prevue Pet #PPK-TIEL3
Cage Size/Dimensions: 26”L x 14”W
Cage Bar Spacing: 5/8” wire spacing
Cage purchased from: Exotic Wings and Things, Petstore/Breeder where I bought Jack

Features you like about the cage:
The design, It's not too big and not too small. I think it looks neat. It's fair easy to clean as well

Features you dislike about the cage:
The door placement - I need to stretch to reach all the area's in the cage. The door should have been higher or there should be another door in the top or back
And as much as I love the neat design of the rounded top, i wish it was flat so i could put his play stand there when i'm not using it in other areas of the house.

Favorite Toys:
Jack doesn't have too much yet. Currently he has 2 cloth dangly things with beads and wooden dowels, a tooth brush with beads, plus a plastic string of stars. I'm currently looking for some foraging style toys.

Perches Provided:
2 rope perches - One near the top and to the back where Jack usually perches to sleep, and one in the front where he watches and observes everything, and a stone/cement one which he never sits on. Plus a swing with beads in the center which hangs from the ceiling

He looks very happy! I usually change toys every month or two, to keep it new. And with Jo Anne, Nikki and most of us, we'll have you spending way too much on toys, lol. But I think he has a nice assortment.

Members have told me 5/8 spacing might be too wide, so keep an eye out if he tries to squeeze through. With winter coming, remember to move the cage away from any drafts like your sliding glass door or near any windows.

I had a similar cage like that for Kiwi and she learned to open the door and seed doors, lol. I had to put clothes pins on holding it shut. They are just so smart!

He is very happy! I did worry a little about it being big enough for him, especially after reading here about the bigger the better, cage wise, but he seems quite happy and content. He's climbing about and jumping around, so I don't think I have anything to worry about.

Thus far, he hasn't learned how to open any cage doors yet. I've come home from my goings about and he's always still in his home. He has come to love crawling out of his cage and exploring. I think he's looking for millet spray. lol. I used to keep it on the shelf below with the fish tank, but he discovered it and was raiding the stash. lol. He's still getting settled so he enjoys times out of his cage, but he definitely feels safest in his home. Right now, i'll consider myself lucky that he hasn't gotten any houdini ideas in his head. lol

Here's Marco's Parrotlet Palace. She's getting more perches, (natural wood), and several ropes to go in there soon. For now, she's got some wood perches, and a couple plastics.

It's the Economy Line Stackable Cage from King's Cages, as seen here: http://kingscages.com/ProductDetails...tID=ELFDD_3221

Here's my setup - 2 HQ Platinum Cages with 1 P'let and 1 Pineapple Green Cheek Conure. I rotate the toys every couple of weeks, but usually leave the perches in the same positions. I have wooden perches of different sizes, one cement perch in each cage, Booda perches and so many toys that I have 3 HUGE bins full of toys waiting to rotate in!

There are additional playstands to the right and left of the first picture that wouldn't fit in the frame -- a couple of them hang from the ceiling, and two others are on a bookcase and an end table. It's a small room, but it's loaded with their stuff!

cris - Thanks for the compliments on my bird room. I bought the yellow coiled tubing on line at a bird toy website a couple of years ago. I'm sorry, I don't remember the website! I did a general search for them and couldn't come up with anything.

I've since read that you can buy the yellow coiled tubing at a hardware store (like Home Depot in the U.S.) and then just find something to stick on the ends to hold it on the cage. Mine came with plastic shapes with holes in them that fit the tubing. Probably much cheaper to make your own!

My 2 love their Curly-Q (that's what they're called)! They run through them like crazy! I call it their "birdy pass-through"!

Sorry I couldn't be more helpful!
