Cage Bar Spacing

I am a new owner of 4-month-old female African Grey Congo and new member on this site. The cage I have her in right now is 22" D x 32" W 36" H and 1/2" bar spacing. I am looking at getting her a cage 28" D x 36" W x 68" H and 1" bar spacing will this spacing be to wide I donít want her to stick her head though the bars and get stuck any suggestions.
Thanks in advance.

Re: Cage Bar Spacing

For a CAG I believe that 1" is good....but someone correct me if I am wrong.
I can find some cages that are big, with smaller spaced bars. Just givve me a few min.

Re: Cage Bar Spacing

1" is fine, anything else and they could get their wings caught between the bars. (I know this from experience ) Young greys are very clumsy and can get the tops of their wings stuck in the bars at a very odd angle. Then when you have to go get it out you better have some plasters (band aids) ready.

Both mine have 1" spacing and Kito (the baby, 6 months) has been in his for a while now. He never managed to get his head through.

If ya need any help with anything please just ask.
Our fee for all the help, or chat is lots of pics of your baby.

Re: Cage Bar Spacing

I agree that 1" is perfect, especially for a baby. There are a lot of websites out there with recommended bar spacing, and some of them for Grey's & Amazon's even say up to 1 1/2". My Amazon's outside cage is 1 1/2", and I think it's almost too big for them, and I'm constantly checking on them when they are out there so they don't get stuck.

I think you'll have more peace of mind with 1" spacing
