Our girl has loads of space to climb, roost, hang upside down and play... I got this cage on sale and with a discount code for about $450 so you can definitely get deals if your patient/shop around.

Thank you! I will look into cages on their website

Far too common with major retailer websites to screw-up the shipment(s).

Cage Depth (front to back): Measure the door openings between where the cage will be placed and each door between there and the outside of your home your apartment. If you need to get this Amazon out of your home and fast, this allows you to simply roll it out (without the seed catcher).

Access Door: As stated above, get a big one (Top to bottom of the front of the cage and centered. This one feature will make everyone's life just easier for so many reasons!

Play tops vs dome tops: This is a personal choice item. IMHO, the play top wins every time as it provides an additional perch play area and just as important, a place to put things when one is cleaning or servicing the cage.

Bar opening: Zero error on this item!!! Judge the width of your Amazon's head at eye level. That is the maximum width. Anything smaller is great. That size or larger is a death trap for your Parrot.

Check-out the Amazon Forum and that Thread at the top highlighted in light blue Titled: I love Amazons - ... That huge Thread contains near thirty Segments that will provide you tons of information regarding Loving and Living with Amazons.

I will check out their website, thank you! And thank you for the tips on how to choose the perfect cage

So far yes! I had called to make an appointment with the avian vet near me and they said he was on vacation so im going to wait for him to come back from vacation. I donít want to take him to a regular vet because like yall said an avian vet knows more about birds than a vet in general. Therefore im buying him a cage so he can have extra room to play in.
