does anybody have this cage?

http://www.wayfair.com/Prevue-Hendry...0-PVP1059.html

I've decided that I will use ice's old cage for an outdoors one, and maybe get this one If it Is decent. I'm finding her cage just isn't big enough for her and all her stuff.

And this cage is pretty cheap for it's size and it's free shipping so you can't go wrong!

So does anybody have this cage? And or think it's good enough to hold a green cheek?

Thanks!

I don't have it at the moment, but I've researched it and intened to buy one, or a few . I think it would be great for ice, it's a really nice cage.

The only thing that I don't care for are the doors. It looks like they just hook over, doesn't look very secure. The size is great, I am sure Ice would love it.

Ya I've researched the doors. And it is just a hook over, but apparently the cage is very sturdy, so if the fact that ice does learn to open the doors. I'll be attaching a clamp on the door as well so she can not escape.

I'm ordering it this weekend I'm so excited!!

Cool, it does look like a good cage! Scully's owners needed to clamp his doors!

I have my budgies in that cage. I like it. It's a nice cage. But it has 3 doors on each side that are only held shut by a spring. I know my budgies can't open it but Ice my be able to get her head stuck in it. You may have to get some kinda clamp to lock them.



Plus 2 guinea pigs and a lot of chickens

Ok thanks, I've heard of the springs problem, so I will definitely be buying some clamps along with it to keep them closed!

I have that cage and keep 3 cockatiels in it; I love it. I bought mine off Amazon for $120 in December.

Well if 3 cockatiels can fit in it, 1 GCC will be swimming!!

I think 120$ and free shipping is such a great deal..!

Putting it together was an experience because some of the pieces look almost identical to another piece. We put the wrong pieces in wrong places twice during the assembly. But it was simple enough that you just unscrew it, exchange pieces, and screw it back in. Assembly was definitely a two-man job because you have to fit the the prongs into the holes at the same time, and the holes are almost 3 feet from each other on the long ends. In the end it is a sturdy cage, easy to clean, has a deep cage pan, and it's easy to move because it is on wheels. I highly recommend it. If i had room I'd get a second one and put 2 cockatiels in each. As it is right now, my 3 boys get the big cage and my 1 girl will keep the smaller.

Thank you very much for all the input!!
I can't wait to throw everything in there, I bet there will still be tons of room!!

When I put the cage through checkout, it says the totall come to $175, but this shouldn't happen because of free shipping, maybe I need to go on to the next step to get discounted..
I don't know, I'll go and investigate when I get home

Can you order from Amazon or Ebay? The cages are usually free shipping there.
