cage bar spacing for a green cheek?

Hi,

I tried looking and googling around but couldn't find anything... maybe I'm blind, but I need to know how far apart a conure's cage bars can be? I'm having a hard time finding a big cage that doesn't have huge macaw-sized bars that I know a conure could probably fit through! Especially a green cheek cause they're littler.

I have my eye on this one > eBay Australia: Buy new & used fashion, electronics & home d

It says the bar spacing is 2cms approx. What do you think?

Re: cage bar spacing for a green cheek?

I think its okay. My GCC will be in 3/4 bar spacing (aka 2 cm.)

Re: cage bar spacing for a green cheek?

1/2" or 5/8" inch spacing is ideal for a GCC. 3/4" (1.9 cm) would be ok too, but I wouldn't go any wider than that. 2 cm (0.79 inches) would be right on the border between acceptable and too wide.

Re: cage bar spacing for a green cheek?

hmm, so it's not that greater cage? I was really excited about the size but then the bar width worried me... but I can't seem to find anything that's big and has small bars! ):

Re: cage bar spacing for a green cheek?

One of the cages I had my gcc in only lasted a couple of days as I was sitting there one night and I heard my cinn gcc "croak", he had climbed right through the roof bar spacing and was sitting on top of the cage, put him back in the cage and he did it again. He was so proud of himself. Bar spacing was 2cm on sides and 2.5cm on roof. Needless to say, he got a new cage the next day as I have 1 dog and 2 cats. Try K-mate (Noble Park) or Always Direct or Maccess( same company, Dandenong South), hope I am allowed to write that. They advertise on ebay. I have 3 of their cages and my only gripe is they dont provide instructions or poor instructions, but they are not that hard to put together.

Re: cage bar spacing for a green cheek?

I found it difficult to find the right bar spacing for the size I wanted for my GCC, too. I ended up going with a cage with 5/8" spacing. The breeder I bought from suggested 1/2" but said 5/8" would be OK. Anything larger and they can get out -- as evidenced by an earlier post!

I bought this one and I'm happy with it:

Good luck searching!

Re: cage bar spacing for a green cheek?

A bar spacing of 3/4" will enable a Green Cheek Conure to squeeze half his body out (as seen in the attached picture).

My favorite cage is that one by A&E with 1/2" bar spacing and a large size of 32" long by 21" deep.

Re: cage bar spacing for a green cheek?

This is the cage I have for my GCC Marvelous Pet Supplies Chateau X-Large Bird Cage at PETCO I would be afraid of using 3/4, that the bird could get out, or get stuck.
