Question What size cups to buy for Cal Cage?

I just brought Zazzy the Quaker a new cage home tonight. Well, new to us anyway.

It didn't have the food or water cups with it so I tried to use the ones that her old cage had. They will go in it but they are so small compared to what size it would really use.

On Ebay I noticed most sold or described theirs by the amount of liquid it holds and not the dimensions of the actual bowl. How am I going to figure out which ones to order for her new cage?

I have a PetCo close to me and I'll look there too but they don't usually have lots of choices in bird bowls and such.

I like lock crock or coop cups... ones that can be removed easy and leave the holder behind... buy what works well for you and don't worry if they are not the right ones... just my 2 cents worth.

Yeah I'd go ahead and buy some with clamps or something similar that can be fixed anywhere in the cage and then you can do what I do with the old holders, attach toys to dangle down hehe
