Pre-Refund Cage Shopping!

Hi gang! Itís been a while. Iím happy to report Pepper and I are doing great. Iím about to change up his life as Iím planning to order a new cage in the next month or so.

I really like this cage especially because the big door means itíll be easier for me to clean. I also saw the Lihue cage here and thought that might be alright too. My only requirement is that all openings be fitted with spring locks because Pepper is an escape artist, and it looks like both cages have those locks.

Iíve heard some strange things about Kingís as a company so Iím a little wary... Which cage would you pick?

Re: Pre-Refund Cage Shopping!

What "strange" things have you heard about kings cages? They're a pretty reputable company and I've gotten my own cage from there. The cage came with some slight defects but they were very responsive and worked with me to have the defected pieces replaced and all is well now.

Re: Pre-Refund Cage Shopping!

My experience with King’s has been good - I have a couple of their transport cages and they’ve been very responsive when I requested spare parts. I know another member here has had good luck ordering from birdcages4less. Both cages look nice, I think either would be good!

I’ve heard their cages come with faulty parts and that the customer service is unresponsive or plain rude. I was worried about experiencing either situation, but since you and Jen have had good experiences, I feel better about possibly choosing their cage.

Re: Pre-Refund Cage Shopping!

We have used birdcages4less.com for decades now! We have purchased three over the years and also support components. With the last cage we just order additional feed bowls... We buy the 'toy package' based on the size of your Parrot. If nothing else, they make great parts for making other toys...

IMHO, I'm not a believer in the curved top as it steals the additional perch area that a flat top, play area offers...

Also, birdcages4less.com uses a full height front door.

That's a good point. Pepper doesn't spend much time on the top of his cage as he prefers to sit on my shoulder or chest while I do my thing, but he does occasionally return to the top of his cage to play with wooden blocks and chew things. With that in mind, what is your opinion on this cage?

Re: Pre-Refund Cage Shopping!

Nice cage for a Parrot that is fully flighted...

Our Amazon is a free roamer and both flies and walk-about at his will (not recommended for all parrots). Anyway, if your Parrot walks-about, the cage you selected will present a challenge to climb the lower cage. As a young Parrot, not a concern. As your Parrot ages, you will find that you will be requested to provide assistance more often. Other than that small point, nice cage.

Our home is owned by an Amazon and we use this cage or its larger version:
Lani Kai Lodge Playtop Large Bird Cage
Size: 32"W x 22"D x 64"H
Price: $449.95$399.95

Re: Pre-Refund Cage Shopping!

He's turning 8 this July and is flighted. He doesn't walk about much and prefers to fly, but does enjoy climbing up and down his cage so that is something to consider. The height of the cage admittedly helps me keep it clean. I injured my back a few years ago and getting on the floor and bending over can be difficult sometimes, though I do it anyway for the little guy.

Re: Pre-Refund Cage Shopping!

the cage would work fine however I do strongly advise you to never have the top open without the perch securely in place. And make extra sure he can't open it on is own.

Re: Pre-Refund Cage Shopping!

We just got a King's cage for our B&G mac and I have no complaints. Solid heavy duty big cage.
