Re: cage bar spacing for a green cheek?

Thanks for the help everyone... I checked out all those sites but I swung by my local pet store on the way from work today just to see what they had and they had awesome large cage with tiny bars for only $299, for the extra $100 or so dollars I think it's money well spent considering I can see it in the flesh first and don't have to assemble it... lol.

I bought it and bought it home today. I should post a picture of it later.

Re: cage bar spacing for a green cheek?

RM and myself have the same cage. It is large with only 1/2" bar spacing which is hard to find. Here is a pic:

Re: cage bar spacing for a green cheek?

I wouldn't go any wider than 1/2" for a Green Cheek.

5/8" would probably be okay, but knowing how Green Cheeks love to go exploring, I would always worry about them getting their head through the bars and then getting stuck and panicking (especially younger, foolish ones).

Re: cage bar spacing for a green cheek?

Here is a pic of the cage we bought, it's nice and big, and very sturdy. I really like it. We only bought a few toys when we picked it up, as we bought everything else online and they haven't arrived yet, so it's a bit empty! Now all we need is the bird!

Re: cage bar spacing for a green cheek?

Cupcake, good cage choice. You are going to have so many laughs watching your little guy hanging upside down from the top of that cage. GCC are soo acrobatic and funny, enjoy! Do you know when s/he is going to be arriving? Name picked yet?

Re: cage bar spacing for a green cheek?

Where abouts did you end up getting Yoshi from, may I ask? I am in South East Melbourne and got mine from a pet shop. I did my research from some local birdy people who have contacts with this particular shop and who have also bought (worked or sold their baby birds) there.
