Question Caging

What different parrot species could i keep in this 3ft long 2ft wide by 2 1/2 ft tall cage? I would not have a rodent in it and the middle level would be taken out.

How big is the bar spacing... Once we know that we can give you some species that can live happily in that cage.

I would say something on the small-medium side, a cockatiel or budgie or green cheek conure, sun conure, other small conures, lovebird, a caique, parrotlet, linnie. Maybe a quaker or a senegal if your planning on a good amount of out of cage time. Anyone feel free to point out a species if I missed one

To small for An African grey I think..

I think a conure would be the largest bird you could get in there and still provide room for toys, perches etc.


Icicis- Green cheek conure
Shaylee- Bichon Frise

That cage is not big enough for an african grey.


p.s. Make sure you do a lot of research when considering a new bird and make sure its the species you want and can handle, especially with a larger species like the African grey because they require a lot more attention, mental stimulation, work, space, etc than smaller birds

Of all the birds listed I feel it would also be too small for a caique. They're bigger than Senegal parrots and certainly more active! Your best bet would be a pyrrhura conure (look the family up) or a cockatiel I'd say
