We have a flock of four here, only the tiels share a cage though. The lovebirds do not get along enough to share a cage long term. Munch will try to kill her brother over a bowl of veggies!
Anywho, Munch's cage is improvised. She needed a bigger cage, but since we had two of the same smaller cages, we flipped them on their sides and combined them in the middle, then rested the long cage on the old bases. This cage is perfect for Munch in many ways. She hardly uses height. She prefers to play on the cage floor chasing after her balls and chewing up foot toys. So the horizontal space is excellent for her. She also must have only natural branches. We have found if she does not have natural branches to chew and strip bark off of, she chews her feet. She has been a happier bird since switching her perches to mostly natural willow, silver maple, birch, and sycamore. She has several foraging toys that are more advanced than most of our birds have as her intelligence is the highest in our flock and she becomes bored easily even with lots of toys, she needs puzzle type toys and challenging toys. She needs to destroy things and figure things out. Her cage doors also latch, so she cannot open them. She has been an expert escape artist in the past. The tray is also deep, it is far below the grate where she cannot reach the paper, and anything she shreds and tries to make a nest with simply falls through the grate where she cannot reach. It helps let her shred but keep the nesting to a minimum. But she is a determined bird!

Mango's cage is mostly natural, but some other fun things, he likes his fleecy type toys to cuddle with. He has his running wheel which he loves to run in. His blue ball is always where he sleeps because it is his "mate" and he cannot be apart from it. He uses height and width so his cage is good for him, he doesnt play a whole ton with all his toys, he plays with a few but would rather cuddle in his snuggle corner. He is a skittish bird, so we have a little privacy corner for him that he can go to and feel secure.

The tiels' cage has fleece blankets for bedding because there is no grate and the tiels tend to chew up the paper and get nesty over it. The fleece also helps with the nightfrights--Tsuka is prone to them. They like both their rope and natural perches. Tsuka likes to destroy lots of things, so plenty of destructible toys for him and several foraging toys for Dally because those are what she prefers. They share the top of a Ferret Nation cage, but one day they will also have the bottom level (we will remove the divider and they will have the full cage, for now our elderly hedgehog lives beneath them).

If you are wondering about the fleece curtains, it is getting cold so it is extra warmth should they feel chilly at all.
This is the lovebirds' playgym. It is a cage top Natural gym, handmade.
This swing is the tiels'. It stores under Mango's cage when it is not in use, but I hang it up when the tiels are out. We don't have a big place, so space saver playgyms are a must! This swing is a DIY swing I made.
This is the tiels' window ledge, also another DIY. It stays here.
This playgym is also the tiels'. We put it on this shelf in the bedroom for storage, but we bring it out when the tiel's come out. Again, space savers are a must for us. Because it is in the bedroom, the lovebirds also have access to this when they are out of the cage, but choose to use their own. Another DIY gym.
