Is this cage ok?

Hello

I hope someone can help me with a cage question. Originally I had asked about this one (A24) A24 (2011) Charcoal Grey - Canada Cages but I noticed the bar spacing is more than an inch, and the price went up

The next best one I can find that's still in my price range would be this one (A23) A23 (2010) Charcoal Grey - Canada Cages The bar spacing is good, but I'm not sure about the cage size. I think it's big enough but want to make sure.

Thanks

Re: Is this cage ok?

I have Ekko in a cage that is 36X30 and I am planning on moving him to a larger cage as he uses every bit of the cage. He is a Vosmaeri so is a larger ekkie. What sub species of ekkie are you getting?

The bar spacing on the first cage may be too large, we tried Ekko in a cage with 1.25 bar spacing, and it was a little wide for him to comfortably navigate. His cage has 1" spacing that he is in now.

I believe he's a Solomon Island (found a reference on the breeder's site) but asking for confirmation! Canadian Parrot Breeder, Parrot Breeders
