I have not been able to find any 36x24 cages that are that short, and the vet specifically said they’d do better in a cage with less height? Where are these two foot tall bird cages?

Kind of surprised though about the dimensions - our Amazon’s cage is an A&E dome top whose “practical” dimensions are about 32x22? He is a much larger bird than a Quaker.

I'll try to find one specifically. Not sure how to share the image and info. Yaheetech has one that's 38x18x21 which pretty close. Its on a rolling stand and has a removable divider. It comes in a two "story" and a single "story" version and it comes in white and black for about $128.

Ah, that’s similar dimensions to the Pawhut one isn’t it? That’s the main one we are leaning toward!

Right. It appears that many online retailers sell this same cage. At least four sell it through Amazon for prices ranging from about $90 to about $150.

Thanks for all the help and info everyone! The little guy spent the night at our house, but I realized I think I need to take a step back and focus on our current crew of critters. He was really sweet and chatty, but had a lot going on (apparently in spite of being six or seven, he’d still been fed hand feeding formula?! He kept begging us to feed him and we had to redirect him to his food, which he did eat with gusto). He’s going to go with a foster who already has a Quaker he can see and maybe socialize with.

Kirby seems pleased that I have finally realized he’s the only bird for me. 😅 He enjoys parrot play dates, but doesn’t seem too keen on one in his domain long-term. I think I need to accept this and also that if he is happy I should be too. He’s grinding his beak as I type this.
