Struggling to find a suitable cage for Quaker
 
I am just wondering if anyone within the UK would know of somewhere to get a good parrot cage delivered or if anyone else knows of a good sized cage for a quaker parrot.

My issue is that all of the cages i seem to look at that are the size i am looking for are all 2cm bar spacing which is far to big. She is currently in the Liberta Discovery which is 1.5cm bar spacing but it is a bit of a pain seeing as it is a corner cage.

I am now looking for any suggestions on a new cage for her as i just cannot find anything that has close enough bars.

Also what is the correct bar spacing for a quaker?

Thanks :)

I'd consider going larger if possible- as far as cage size

The cage i currently have is 183mmH x 880mmW x 620mmD so i am looking something round that size or bigger if possible. :)

I was just looking at the picture-IDK-- I wasn't trying to put down yours or anything--- didn't look at measurements, but in the image it looked like it was like 2 ft by 2.5 ft feet-- again, still haven't looked at measurements

My cages are 32 inches long, 22 inches deep, and 38 inches tall , on stand 63 inches tall.

Thus is my favorite size, ive had smaller and once had much much larger

Ah ok, so mine is quite tall then. Wasnt sure if i could go smaller tbh as i want a good size cage for her....however if i can get a shorter cage then i will look for that and see if i can get something that sort of size.

I think you and your bird will be very happy with the size, dimensions are if actual cage, last is when sitting on stand.

I'm sure largest you can is best. My 2 GCC had one so huge I could sit inside cross legged and room over head and just reach each side with arms out. But so hard to manage cleaning and perch and toys. When I git more parrots there just wasn't room, and her cage mate had passed.

Yes i know the feeling. The corner cage i have is a great size but a pain to clean and fit somewhere. It also hard to put perches and toys in a corner cage as everything overlaps and then it is a daily task having to clean the perches constantly. So a new cage is deffo needed.
