A bird sits in a rectangular cage next to a window

 

Owning a pet bird can be an incredibly rewarding experience, but getting things set up in the house so birdie can come home can be a daunting task. One of the most important things to do is get the best possible cage for your new pet. There's a lot to consider when picking out the perfect bird cage: the type, the material it's made of, where it is going to go, how large it needs to be, etc. Finding the perfect space for a pet is much more than simply finding something that closes securely and looks nice in the corner (although those are both considerations to keep in mind).

 

This article will break down several types of birdcages, what animals they're best for, and other considerations when picking out the perfect space for a beloved pet.

Bird Aviary and Outdoor Bird Cage

Bird aviaries and outdoor bird cages are generally much larger than regular, indoor birdcages. They are large, outdoor enclosures that are often known as flight cages because they allow birds the freedom to fly within a limited range. Aviaries and outdoor cages are considered the most natural of all bird habitats not only because they are large enough to allow flight but also because they can be outfitted with local shrubberies, plants, and small trees to emulate a natural environment.

 

Aviaries date back at least to sometime around the 1500s. Hernán Cortés recorded seeing them in Tenochtitlan, an Aztec city. Today, aviaries are most popular in zoos, parks, and wildlife sanctuaries. This, of course, is because they are so large. Most individual bird owners do not have enough space to build an aviary or have the large amount of birds that would require one. That isn't to say there are no aviaries to be found at personal homes; it is just more likely to see them in larger areas.

 

Those planning to buy one or two birds, or aves, will most likely not find this type of enclosure necessary. However, those with enough space and resources may still find having one worthwhile. Its feathered occupant(s) will certainly appreciate the nice outside habitat on warm, sunny days. It will help them feel free, just like a wild bird!

Large Cage

"There's so much space to do activities in this parrot cage."

 

Pet parents with larger birdies must provide them with large, roomy cages. The varieties that will require larger spaces include, but are certainly not limited to, parrots, cockatoos, and macaws. These birds can grow to over a foot in height and have wingspans of over twenty inches! Birds this large need a lot of room to spread their wings and grow.

 

Large aves like these require enclosures of the following dimensions at the very least: two feet deep, three feet wide, and four feet high. Particularly big animals might require an extra large space or rather tall enclosure. It is also best if they are square in shape instead of round. Round cages have points where the wires can converge; this can be dangerous for the toes of large climbing birds. The cage also needs to be big enough so that there is room for a "playpen" in the top of the cage. This will allow its occupant all of the space he needs, with room for play, relaxation, and sleeping time.

Small Cage

An item pet parents should consider purchasing is a cover for the cage. Black is the color that can best block out light to help a birdie sleep better at night. Sometimes multiple towels will work, too.

 

A parakeet, finch, or canary might prefer a smaller cage. However, do not think that just because an ave is small that they have to have a small space. All birds like to play and explore, so those who can purchase a larger cage should consider doing so. However, with a small bird, it is okay to go smaller in most cases.

 

The first thing to decide is what size of cage a particular pet needs. Canaries and finches are some of the smallest pet birds, and they can do well in an extra small cage. A small pet bird species (like cockatiels, lovebirds, small parakeets, and parrotlets) can do fine in small cages, but they do not do well in extra small cages. Larger parakeets may actually do better in a medium-sized cage.

 

Again, these are what the birds need at minimum. Most animals will enjoy a larger enclosure if there's room for one. Those who do decide to buy a larger space for a small pet bird must make sure that the spaces between the bars are small, so than no feathery friend can escape or get his head stuck in between. As with larger birds, odd-shaped and rounded bird cages are not recommended. Small birds can get their toes caught in gathering wires just as easily as larger species. Square and rectangular cages are always better than the rounded ones.

Flight Bird Cage

A flight bird cage lets it occupants fly about. A parrot or other large species can make great use of this space, which allows them to mimic what a wild bird would do.

 

As mentioned earlier, flight cage is simply another name for a bird aviary or an outdoor bird cage. There are, however, flight cages that are meant for smaller birds as well. Those are not nearly as large as bird aviaries, but they serve the same purpose, only for smaller birds. In layman's terms, flight cages are designed to do exactly what their names imply: they allow their feathered occupants room to fly around.

 

Flight pens for smaller birds will be different depending on the species that it holds. Parakeets, like parrots, are climbers; they get most of their exercise by climbing the bars of their enclosures and playing with their toys. Because they are climbers, they do better in a flight cage that is tall rather than wide. Canaries, unlike parakeets, are hoppers and fliers. They do best within an enclosure that is wide rather than tall because it gives them room to fly back and forth.

Bird Travel Cage

Not an ideal mode of transportation.

 

Every pet bird requires two separate cages at the minimum. They need a sturdy cage that acts their home and they need to have a travel cage as well. Every owner will need to take their feathered companions to the vet occasionally. Or it might be necessary need to take them to a friend or parent's house for the weekend. Or they just need a place to hold tight during a detailed cleansing of their regular cages.

 

These portable enclosures do not have to be as large or as exquisite as the bird's home space. What they do need is to be large enough to be comfortable. Even more importantly, they must be designed in a way to keep their occupants safe.

 

Pets can certainly be tamed and befriended; however, it is never wise to take them out of the house without them being in a portable pen. They could fly away or simply get spooked and accidentally hurt themselves or someone else. Travel cages are excellent choices for keeping them—and others—safe. There are several different types of traveling bird cages, including wire, plastic, and even backpack varieties. Owners must ensure that whichever cage they buy is the right size for their pet. Owners should also check that these spaces can also hold a few toys as well as some feed and water.

 

Pet owners should note that sometimes not all types of birds are considered pets in the United States. This means some owners may face restrictions during travel, even if it's only domestic travel between states, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association. Furthermore, sometimes even animals that are classified as pets, rather than livestock, face travel restrictions. It's important to always check a travel destination's laws and regulations regarding transportation of these animals.

Hanging Bird Cage

Bottom view of a hanging bird cage

 

Hanging bird cages are quite lovely to look at. They are often what people imagine when they first hear the term "bird cage," particularly ones that have a distinct vintage feel. These types of enclosures can be great for smaller animals. They can be hung in many different areas both in and out of the home. On a warm, sunny day, they can even hang from trees outside, which allows feathery friends to enjoy the beautiful outdoors. These cages allow a nice, steady breeze to blow through the bars to keep their occupants cool and calm.

 

They also usually have many built-in features that birds love, like:

 

The biggest disadvantage to hanging cages is that many of them are rounded at the top. Remember: a rounded enclosure, sometimes called a dometop bird cage, can harm a bird's sensitive toes. Those who shop for a rounded hanging cage must be vigilant about this fact. If at all possible, owners should buy a square or rectangular hanging pen instead. They are a little harder to find than the rounded ones, but they are out there and will be less likely to harm a beloved pet.

 

These enclosures also often require a bird cage stand. Sometimes a purchase will come with a stand or other supplies included, other times a package may be free of all the needed equipment. It is important to shop around to find the best products for the best available deals possible.

Corner Bird Cage

Many pet parents like to spoil their feathered companions with plenty of toys. This supplies a birdie with plenty of enrichment.

 

Corner bird cages are a great choice for owners with limited amounts of space in their homes or apartments. In other words, this kind of enclosure is popular because it can free up a lot of space in any room. This variety is exactly what it sounds like: an enclosure that is shaped uniquely so that it can fit into the corner of a room. The back is a V shape so that it slides right into the corner where two walls meet. The front is either circular or similarly shaped to accommodate the odd-shaped back.

 

These types of pens come in a variety of sizes. So, they subsequently work for a plethora of species. They are often multi-level and have various perches, trays, ladders, and other built-in perks. Many of them often come with a door on top as well, so that an owner can open it and allow a pet to climb or fly out. Again, potential buyers should be mindful of the fact that—in any oddly shaped cage—there are places where wires converge, which can pose safety hazards. There are, however, ways to cover these places to get rid of that danger all together.

Cages Made of Special Materials

Another important consideration is what material it will be made from. There are several different choices here that each have their own benefits.

Metal Bird Cage

Metal or stainless steel enclosures are better protected against larger aves nibbling on them. A bird cage for a parrot or other large species should have thicker, sturdier bars.

 

Metal cages are probably the most common variety of avian enclosures for the home. They are readily available, easily affordable, and practical. They are strong and can last for years with proper upkeep and maintenance. They are also quite pleasing to look at as well as being easy to clean.

 

A stainless steel bird cage is a popular subcategory of metal birdcage. They are incredibly strong and designed to last for up to fifty years! They're ideal for medium and large birds because these aves enjoy biting and pulling at their enclosures with their powerful beaks. This is much harder to do in a stainless steel pen. This means owners won't have to buy a replacement as often. The downside to stainless steel enclosures is that they are often heavy and hard to move. They are also sometimes prone to rusting. Proper upkeep is necessary to keep them free of rust.

Acrylic Bird Cage

Acrylic cages are a relatively new option for bird owners. There are some definite advantages to using acrylic birdcages. They are typically safe and made of relatively inexpensive materials, which means they generally cost less than their metal counterparts. They are also easy to disassemble for cleaning purposes. The disadvantages of using acrylic, however, are that they often create problems with air quality and ventilation.

Wooden Bird Cage

Wooden cages are not a common choice. There are, however, a few companies today who sell custom-built wood birdcages, but they are fairly expensive. This is especially true if they're made with materials like bamboo. Price is certainly a deterrent when thinking of buying a wooden enclosure. Another disadvantage of using a wooden pen is that their inhabitants like to bite and chew on them. With steel bars, they can bite all day and have little effect. That is not the case with a wood birdcage.

 

However, there are certainly some advantages to using wooden birdcages, as well. First of all, they are certainly pleasing to look at and can have intricate designs and decorations carved into them. They are also easy to clean and pose no threats from pinching wires.

Safety and Other Concerns

It's important to be informed on how best to care for a pet bird in order to protect the animal, owner and other humans, and even other pets. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) sets forth a few guidelines to help protect both human and animals, including (but not limited to):

 

It's also important to be cautious about the types of cages these animals are housed in. Some might come in pretty colors or designs, but that does not always mean they are safe. Many birdies will chew on the bars of their enclosures. For example, if there is paint that can chip off the bars during this process, there is a significant risk of the pet ingesting something hazardous. As mentioned before, some birdcages are constructed in such a way that they can pinch a pet's feet. Responsible bird owners must always conduct plenty of research—and might have to shop around a bit—before making a final purchasing decision on their pet's enclosure.

 

Providing plenty of enrichment to birdie is another factor that pet parents should take into account. There are plenty of cages & accessories included with many purchases. However, sometimes enclosures come free of any enriching accessories, such as toys. It is true that these products may come with a higher price tag, but caged occupants need stimulation to stay happy and healthy. A visit to the pet shop or shipping something to the home can provide plenty of fun new things for pets to enjoy, improving their quality of life.

Final Thoughts

Every pet parent wants the best for their feathered friends. Giving these beloved companions a safe place to call home is an important part of being a responsible owner. Fortunately, there are many options available to suit the needs of both the owner and specific pet. It is important not to skimp on a cage, as this purchasing decision can be one of the most important in regards to caring for these animals. Birds can live for many years; their environment should be long lasting, safe, and comfortable. It might take a little longer to shop around for quality bird cages (and the price might not be cheap, either), but it will be worth it in the end to provide birdie with the best home.
