Re: Cage size for green cheek?

Just a word of caution... open top cages like that can pose a hazard from inside or outside of the cage....

Some of the larger species have managed to open the top of the cage from the inside, however, end up getting stuck, never being able to get anything more than their head past the top.... I've heard more sad stories than I cared to hear...

From the outside, some of these doors are easy enough to knock closed, even with a perch "wedged" between the openings. If a bird is sitting on that perch and decides to take off, but can't fly, there could be potential danger there, too...
