Let's compare flight cages! This post might also help some people decide on a flight cage and get an idea of what they're like.

If possible, post a picture of your flight cage. Include in your post the dimensions, where you got it from, how much it cost, what else came with it when you bought it (any cups, perches, etc.), a link to where you bought it, and just a plain old review. In your review, include things such as what you like and don't like about it, what additional features on it you appreciate, how accessible and convenient it is, how it's worked out for you and just anything else you think we should know.

I honestly am curious to see, and I'm sure anyone else who is looking to buy a flight cage will appreciate this!

Here is my flight cage!



"Havana Flight Cage"

Dimensions: 31W x 22D x 35H inches, 1/2 inch bar spacing.
From: Internet
Accessories: Two wooden perches, two plastic dishes
Price: $154.99
Link: http://www.birdcages.com/bird-cages/small-bird-cages/havanaflightcage.cfm

I absolutely love this cage. It's spacious, sturdy, easy to move around and it looks really nice. It sits on a stand that has wheels so it is very easy to move around. There is also a little shelf on the stand to store items. The cage comes in a variety of colors, I obviously bought a white one. Towards the top of the cage on both sides, there are little doors that you can pull open. I believe it's meant for dishes, although I don't use it for that. When I'm letting my bird in and out of it on their own, I leave them open. My Kiki loves coming in and out that way. There is one large door in the front of the cage, it's large enough to reach everything in the cage. There is obviously a removable tray at the bottom. So overall, I love this cage. I'd suggest it to everybody! :D

I have two HQ flight cages and LOVE them! I got them fro BirdsComfort.com at two separate times, don't remember what I paid for them. They are both platinum color (light gray). I have one for my GCC and one for my Parrotlet. Here's a link to the cage on BirdsComfort's website: http://www.birdscomfort.com/flight_bird_cage.html

I highly recommend them! Here's my set up for my Parrotlet. This is also their playroom, plus you can see part of Libby's (my Pineapple GCC) sleeping cage on the right. There's more playstands to the right of this picture - couldn't get them all in one shot!


Here's Libby's cage and set up. Her daytime cage is in our family room.

I have 2 of the A&E Double-Stacked flight cages, purchased from CSN: http://www.csnstores.com/asp/show_detail.asp?sku=AEC1032&PiID=3277968

And 1 of the regular A&E flight Cages, also purchased from CSN: http://www.csnstores.com/AandE-Cage-Co.-13221-AEC1048.html

I will be getting another couple of the Double-Stacked flights this spring! I love these cages, gives the birds lots of room and they so much easier to clean than what I had the birds in before.

Here is what my Double-Stacks look like all filled up with perches & toys


I haven't gotten a pic yet of my single flight, it is the Sandstone color, and my new pair of cockatiels are in it :giggle:

I have three HQ flight cages all purchased from Parrotdise Perch. I paid $150 for the white and platinum ones plus $25 shipping each. More recently I purchased the brass one from the same place for $215 including shipping. I use these cages as day cages even though they are open most of the day.
I love the cages and so do the birds. I leave the bath/nest box doors open and push the cages close to each other so the linnies can travel from cage to cage.
There is a plastic removable tray and a removable grate at the bottom.
The cages came with two wooden perches and two plastic dishes which I don't use.

I think flight cages are a great buy, but I really like to have the outside access feed doors. Does anyone know of a flight cage with those?

Nanay, do you mean little doors that open outside of the cage that are not the main door of the cage? Mean to be able to put a food dish in? If you do, my flight cage has them. Two on the top of either side. You can't really see it in the picture I posted earlier, so here's a picture of one:



Although I'm sure they would work fine, I don't really use them for the food dishes.
Is that what you meant, Nanay?

Abby,
Those doors are probably put there for attaching nest boxes, but you certainly could probably attach a food dish there if you wanted. Thanks for the information and the pictures.

Surprisingly, they are put there for food! At least I'm pretty sure. At first I thought it was for nest boxes, too, but in all the pictures it has on the site where I bought it from, they have food dishes hanging from the doors. There also is a comment that refers to the doors being there for food. But I'm sure it could work for both.

I also think they're breeder doors, and I keep mine zip tied so they can't open them. The food dishes which come with the HQ cages are white plastic and are meant to hang on a horizontal bar in the cage. I don't like them (too hard to clean), I use the round stainless steel type, easy and quick to clean.

Also, if food and/or water dishes are placed high in the cage where those breeder doors are, the bird can really make a mess outside the cage! I place my ss dishes as low in the cage as I can, food on one side and water on the other, which also helps to keep them from putting food in their water.
