A10 Parrot Bird Cage, product review


One of the main purchases when owning a bird is providing it with a place it can call home. The bird cage is not just comprised of bars which your little friend sleeps in, it is also the place it will have most of its meals to eat, naps to re-energise and toys to play with. Therefore the parrot bird cage needs to be strong, practical and spacious enough.

Pro’s & Con’s

High Quality A10 parrot bird cage

You’ll be getting a strong, spacious and tall bird cage.

The bars are high quality which prevent chipping and do not allow the bird to break bits off.

Great features for the price 

For the price of the cage you will be getting many features. It comes with:

  • 2 Trays, 1 on top allowng for extra play space and 1 on the bottom which catches fallen seeds and other mess;
  • 2 Feeder doors which can be opened to refill the food bowls without needing to open the main cage door;
  • 4 Stainless steel feeding bowls, 2 inside the cage and 2 on top;
  • 2 Wooden perches, one inside and one (outside) on top of the cage;
  • Seeds catchers around the cage;
  • 4 bottom wheels.

  Bar space is suitable for small to medium birds

The bar space is approximately 1.6 cm (0.6 inch) which means it is safe for small to medium birds. It allows the bird’s tail to stick out so he or she can bend over properly and eat the food in their bowls.

So far (after 2 months), my Green Cheek Conure has been hanging upside down in his cage, is jumping everywhere from all directions and has not got stuck in any way between the bars.

Plenty of space

The cage is very spacious. Currently I have 4 toys, 4 perches and 3 food bowls inside the cage. There is still plenty of space left for more.

My green cheek conure has also plenty of room to move around, jump from one toy to the other and flap his wings.

The height of the cage allowed us to create 3 levels (with still more possible). We have toys hanging on the highest level, food bowls on the second level and multiple perches on the third level. My parrot can jump up and down as much as he wishes.

Easy to move around the room

Due to the 4 wheels underneath, the parrot bird cage can be easily moved around the room  provided a single floor space.

For example, if my parrot wants some private time in the evenings, we just roll the cage to a quieter corner.

Less than 1 hour assembly time

The cage comes in separate pieces and you will need to follow the instructions to put it together. Here are pictures of the instructions that came with the cage:

It took us around 1 hour to figure it all out and the results last up until today. Please click the photos for a bigger size 🙂

 

There are a few disadvantages too:

Bottom bar spacing on inside of cage too large for small birds

Even though the bar spacing fits well for small to medium parrots, the bottom bar spacing on the inside space is too large for small parrot feet such as a conure. My bird’s feet used to slide between the bars and hurt himself as he was trying to walk on the bottom of his cage. Sometimes he would also jump to the bottom which could hurt his feet due to the height of the cage.

To fix this issue we had to place strong paper or cardboard at the bottom of the cage to soften his landing. Now he can easily step around and jump to the bottom with confidence. However this does mean that bird seed can sometimes bounce outside of the cage.

Climbing to the top outside of the cage is difficult for small birds

parrot bird cageAfter 2 months of living in his cage, my Green Cheek Conure still has not figured out how to reach the top of his cage. He signals to us that he needs our help if he wants to get on the top of it. The reason for this is that the top tray does not have any bars for the bird to grab on to (see screenshot). Therefore our small bird always gets stuck at the top tray.

Furthermore he cannot manage to get back inside the cage through the main door when he is on top of it for the same reasons. 

We hope he will manage to figure this part out as he grows older.

In conclusion

Overall it is a strong, spaceous and practical cage. There are many aspects that I am happy about but also a few minor points that could do with improvement.

Overall Score: 9 out of 10
