Cockatiel Cage and Accessories? What all do I need for my Cockatiel?

Okay so instead of a conure, I decided to get a Cockatiel. My breeder will not have any for at least a month, but then he will need to raise it, tame it, etc. before it can be sold, so I figured I should get the new bird's home ready right now so he will have a comfy new home once I get him So - I have decided to get the largest cage I can afford, which I have decided on this one. My breeder also has this one, which he keeps some of his cockatiels in. So, what all would I need to buy to put in the cage? (perches, toys, etc.) and is there a limit or certain things I should not buy? Or just as much toys and perches I can fit in there? I am still doing my research on cockatiels, just want to get his house down first! Also, if it is not too much to ask, could you provide links from the site i am ordering the cage from? They have toys and such...but if you can't that is completely fine Thanks so much for the help. -Yellow_Tang04

Re: Cockatiel Cage and Accessories? What all do I need for my Cockatiel?

Well I just shopped around on the site and grabbed what I thought looked good. So here is my cart. Can I put all that in the cage? Or is that just way too much. I only want to put one bird in there, I think I have way too many perches and toys, but It seems like such a large cage for a cockatiel...I am not sure. Help? And for feeding, do I just refill his bowl when it is empty and just fill a bowl with water?

That is a REALLY good size cage ! Since its really tall you will have to be careful where you put your perches. It says your cart is empty ? I would try cage bar attached toys since they take up less space.

Agree with Mikey, I'm buying my budgies a new cage from there and it's a 28x20X60 for only 350$

Re: Cockatiel Cage and Accessories? What all do I need for my Cockatiel?

Thank you Mikey! As you can see, I took your advice with this cockatiel It does seem a tad expensive. Thanks for that link So, just get about 3-4 perches --- can I use like mazanita braches instead of the plastic type ones? I like the look of those better. So, just get as much clip on toys as I like? Dont want him to have a boring home!

Cockatiels are wonderful birds to own, you will definitely enjoy them!!! You sure can use the mazanita perches as they are pretty easy to clean. Cockatiels don't go through toys that badly so yea get any toy you want but don't over fill it so they'll have room to roam around.

Okay thanks, so I can just get as much toys and stuff for it, just as long is its not too much. is there certain types of toys or perches I should stay away from? like plastic, etc. and does It matter the size of the toy/perch?
