Re: Choosing a Cage for Sun Conure.

The first one looks bigger, get the biggest and deepest as possible, also do not get a play top cage, which in my opinion can cause behavior problems and more difficult to train.
Training is best away from the cage and when a parrot is higher up on a play top cage they can get more bossy.

Re: Choosing a Cage for Sun Conure.

Either of those are plenty good. At this point it kind of comes down to aesthetics, and checking out user reviews. I think the first one would be the most fun but....you're fine either way.

Re: Choosing a Cage for Sun Conure.

I agree with Clark, I like the first cage better. My birds love their playtop cages
I wouldn't go any wider in bar spacing than the first one.

Bar spacing on the cages was the major concern.

I've read some accounts that state 1.9 cm as the maximum safe bar spacing for a Sun Conure. However, other accounts considered a bar spacing 2.2 cm to be safe.

So hopefully a bar spacing of 2 cm will be adequate for a Sun Conure.

Re: Choosing a Cage for Sun Conure.

They all look good- but like others have said-- the bigger, the better and playtops are always a good idea with sunnies.

Have you checked Amazon? I got Skittles day cage there for just over $100

You don't want to go any smaller than 18x18x24. That's the recommended MINIMUM size. Skittles doesn't spend a lot of time in his day cage, but its still a big one. The more time they will spend in it, the bigger you want it to be. Personally, I recommend 22x24x36 for a minimum.

As for bar spacing, 2cm might be pushing it. Ideally, you want bar spacing between 1/2-3/4 of inch.

This is the cage I got for Skittles:

The cages selected each have a playtop.

Links I have posted route to an Australian addresses so simple logic would suggest that ordering from Amazon would be impractical and costly.

Anyway, are you suggesting the third cage? As the Amazon link you have posted is the exact same cage.

Note that the cages measurements in the eBay description is rounded.
