Which flight cage?

Which flight cage do YOU believe is best? Or do you think there is no difference?


HQ flight: http://www.birdscomfort.com/flight_bird_cage.html

A&E flight: http://www.birdscomfort.com/small_flight_cage.html


Reasons for choosing one may be quality, your experience with them, accessibility,
(one has two doors, the other has one), etc. Just let me know!

I believe the only real difference is one has 2 doors and the other has 1. The quality is about the same. I have 4 of the HQ flight cages and love them.. Big and sturdy.

I absolutely LOVE my A&E cage Abby..

Some people say the HQ has a better quality but I think I'm A&E biased.. LOL

I don't know how many times I've hip checked a perch on the outside of the cage.. And freaking out because I thought I snapped a bar.. But not one has snapped!

Only problem I have is when I'm changing set ups etc. I can't reach the back of the cage because my arms are to stubby LOL... I have to pay my brother to screw on the wing nut and washers while I hold the perch in the inside of the cage Lol

Other than that I love the amount of room ice has and I also love how sleek and beautiful it is! I love the platinum color!

I like the hq as having many budgies one door some could fly out were as two doors they fly off the bottom so i can use that door.and having breeder doors on the sides make it easy to put perches on the back.

Now that you mention it... I do like the double door for that reason and also I have a sassy parrotlet and when he is near one door I open the other so he cant bite me...lol

We can't get either in the UK, which is a shame because I'd love one

I have two of the second one. Like the door better is why. If you go to EB you can get it cheaper.
