Old Cages?

So, I thought I'd ask you all, just in case there happens to be someone here...
I am desperately seeking a cage for Alex. He has grown and matured very fast and my work is not scheduling me. I think my parents are willing to help me out but I am not going to ask them to borrow $400+ like most new cages are on the internet and such.
Does anyone here have a used cage they would be willing to give to me or sell to me for cheap, one that is suitable for an African Grey or can be for the time being? If anyone has any suggestions or can help me at all with this, it would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

have you checked your local ads?
i know our kijiji sometimes has cages for cheap. ive seen a few cages that would be suitable for a grey for a bit for under $200

I have sort of a suggestion, but its going to depend on where you are. Im pretty sure you live in Ohio. Do you know how close you are to Mt Hope? Its like in the middle of the state. They are having a huge auction this Fri-Sat. My sister got her greys cage for $45 and its super nice. We are going there. Its just a thought.....

It probably won't be free, but keep checking the pet section of Craigslist. I got mine there for half the price of what it would be new.

I would keep checking Craig's List. You can find really good deals on there.

I was lucky here. Got a beauty out of the free ads advertised as budgie cage. Its a huge Montana cage. And got another one from local pet shop. Had cheap 2nd hand cage. Do you have junk shops or car boot sales near you? Always worth a look.
I really hope you find one.

When you do the search for bird cage do it not only in the pet section but also in the all for sale/wanted, and do the entire post, not just the title.

Would this work for you? It's good for a grey

Check bird rescues, bird clubs, etc. They may have some for sale too

Thank you all.
We've got a few options we are looking at from Craigslist, I'll let you know how it goes. Hopefully we'll have a cage soon!
