Looking for a new travel cage for a Cockatoo

Looking for a new metal travel cage for a Cockatoo. I had A couple Solid acrylic travel cage, but they fall apart and don’t hold up. So looking for different option? I have done the modified cat carrier with perch, but looking for something better.

Here one looking at, but other options would like to know that will hold up to a cockatoo and is large enough.

Re: Looking for a new travel cage for a Cockatoo

I can't speak to the size, but I can sure vouch for the top quality of King's Cages in general. I've also heard good things about that travel cage from someone who owns one for their Amazon.

Re: Looking for a new travel cage for a Cockatoo

I have a couple of the smaller version of that transport cage (I have conures), and they have held up well. They’re easy to clean, lightweight and sturdy. I can’t speak to how they would do with a cockatoo though.

Re: Looking for a new travel cage for a Cockatoo

May be worth investigating what is available locally in pet shops as some small dog crates make decent carriers without the cost. Kings are the best undoubtedly but are heavy and costly.

Re: Looking for a new travel cage for a Cockatoo

I was thinking about using a dog crate that heavy duty, but about $450 for a good one and the others pet taxis they call them that sold at the local pet stores are the same as cat carriers. My female U2 pop the door very easily. She pop the door and got out and flew off to many times. She hates them. Once at the vet as she remembers the building and 10 minutes before she decided to fly back as she hates the going to the vet and she hide behind me as I go into building. This time around looking for a cage type that she can’t bust open and fly out. My males U2 doesn’t mine the pet taxis, it my female U2 that hates them.

Something light is prefer but something they can see out of and perch without having to lean. The Solid acrylic just don’t hold up well and fall apart after a year. Tried two different ones.

A dog crate is something I will look into.

Re: Looking for a new travel cage for a Cockatoo

If you find something, please let me know. I worry about the metal types used in dog crates, but I have to have a full cage for Noodles wherever we go because her travel cage (the largest I could find that she couldn't snap open) is still far too small for her to sleep in--- esp because she tends to flap in unfamiliar environments if she hears a small sound. I feel bad keeping her in her travel cage even during the car ride! That having been said, full-size cages aren't cheap or portable!

Re: Looking for a new travel cage for a Cockatoo

I saw this a well and is not glue together like the other acrylic travel cages that fell apart? Don’t see the weight? Leaning towards the kings cage.

Re: Looking for a new travel cage for a Cockatoo

Mine would hate that. I can show you what I use-- it's too small, but it is possibly larger than that one--- at least, as far as usable climbing space/horizontal length. Again, both are very small. This is the one that mine tolerates (I think 8 hours, with breaks) is the longest I ever pushed it. She never sleeps in it (it's just for the car).

I was thinking the acrylic cage is to small as well due to 15 wide only as my female U2 would likely hate it as well.
