New Cage!

So me and nan were just browsing on the internet earlier, and randomly she has bought me a brand new cage which is pretty enormous. It is too big for any of the species I have at the moment. I believe she is getting me a new birdy pretty soon although I am not small what. I really like the cage she ordered me.

The measurements are:
Bar spacing - 22mm
Height - 162cm
Length - 72cm
Depth - 55cm

so what possible birds do you guys think I could have this cage for? Because I'm pretty sure she's just gunna let me choose hehe

I have a few pics of it from the store I got it from

it's meant to come in 2-4 days

That is a nice cage. I'm not sure on converting the measurements, but I think it might be small for a big macaw, but great for a mini macaw, amazon, grey, or cape. I still think you should look into capes because they are so much more reasonable there than here. If you want a macaw, though, get a macaw - although do get one that is the right size for the cage. (I might be wrong about how big the cage is. If it is big enough, get whatever size macaw you want.)


Thanks Shivani for the awesome siggy!

It works out to be around
64" high
29" wide
22" deep

Its definitely not big enough for a large macaw but a mini macaw, amazon or grey could live comfortably in it as long as they have lots of out of cage time. My macaw's cage is 38" wide do that he has plenty of room to play and climb. Its a beautiful cage and I can't wait to see what you end up getting for it! I say a grey!

Thanks guys ^^ I know it wouldn't be big enough for one of the large macaws, I was joking about that. I really am looking into capes nanay! They seem so cool. I am not looking for a cockatoo or large macaw so they're not to be suggested now please haha. I know the cage is very good for birds of an amazon size, so if you guys can think of anything similar please do say. But I am very much so considering capes.

Daisy,
Another idea would be a patagonian conure. I do understand that they are very loud, but the ones I have seen have been quite sociable.
I've seen several Illiger's macaws. I like them a great deal - if you like the macaw personality. I personally have never handled a severe, but I would think either of those mini macaws would be great. I would want to start out with putting money down on a young baby and being able to play with it while it was being hand-fed, but I do not know if you have that option in your area.
I think it depends the most on what you want in your relationship with your new bird. Do you have an idea about that?


Thanks Shivani for the awesome siggy!

I do very much so like patagonian conures nanay. I am really unsure about what personality I'm looking for. There isn't much variety with mini macaws in the UK and the only ones I have seen have been the Hahn's

I wish you could at least play with some of the other mini macaws. Have you ever played with any patagonian conures? What other large conures are available there? Of course, I personally love the little conures, but I am asking about the large ones available to you because I thought you wanted a larger bird.

I know you don't want a large cockatoo, but what about a goffins or a lesser sulphur crested?

I'm just naming birds about the size I think you might be looking at.

I think blue crowns would be the easiest for me to get. The smaller ones are like green cheeks and jendays I think. But if I looked into people further away I could find a lot more. I have had some hands on with the pats and they're wonderful. I have considered a smaller cockatoo, as I did once have a deposit on a bare eyed which I very much so loved. Though they cost a lot here. I'm looking at 1000 minimum

Daisy - pick a family of birds (macaw, cockatoo, conure, etc) that you like then look into your options would be my best recommendation.

Or, we can play the game I always did with my clients at the bird shop - what traits are you looking for in a bird? Really think and make a list of what you want, then rank them in order - get your top 5. Then I can look at it and think of what species fit the bill and then you can see what's available in the UK. I had a lot of success placing people with the right bird for them doing this

I like conures, amazons, pois, caiques, mini macs. Of course I like the macaws and cockatoos, but I gotta think of my family at the moment, nan heard a macaw kicking off about two weeks ago, she just looked at me and went "no" haha!
