Cage Size for Eclectus
 
Hey guys,
I was wondering what is the appropriate cage size for an Eclectus (male). I know that the biggest cage possible is best but i would just like to know.
Thanks

Minimum 24 inches x 36 inches.

mine is slightly smaller---22x30 I think. I got a second cage that is same depth/width but twice as tall and truthfully for Wrangler it is wasted space. He doesnt ever go near the bottom of the cage or climb much below food bowl level. He does travel horizontally so the width/depth works well. 20x24's are too small unless it is a stack cage that they only sleep in. Its not appropriate for daily living.

One trick with cages (especially these bigger ones which can weight quite a bit, I think ours are over 40kgs) is to get really good castors for them. I went to a castor place and spent about $15 per wheel to get really good ones (2 with the brake, 2 without) and life dragging the cages in and out of the house is soooo much easier. Just be careful of the thread size because some are imperial and some are metric.

I agree with Coopedup - no need for tall cages. I got one of the biggest cages out there and the bottom of the cage is indeed a waste of space as it's never used. You could have some cabinet there for food and/or cleaning stuff and have the cage just sitting on it if you don't want to move it around.

Maxx uses all of his cage for play. 15 hanging toys at all levels and a couple of wiffel balls on the bottom and he uses all of the toys and travels the entire cage. with 6 birds and not many that can come out together I figure the bigger and more stuff to do the better.
since he only gets a few hours a day out.
