Re: Struggling to find a suitable cage for Quaker

Regarding cage bar spacing, what I do is place a finger tip or measuring device close to the front of the Parrot's beak with the goal of determining how wide the head is center or eye to center of eye. The bar spacing should never be wider than this measure as they could place their head between the bars and hang themself.
