If you end up needing zip ties, don't use plastic as the bird can eventually chew it through. Instead get the stainless steel ones. They're like a dollar each but worth it.

Also, if the food doors are like on the picture, don't kid yourself. A tinkering parrot with all day on its hands can open it from inside by push/pulling back and forth on it from inside a lot. I suspected Kili was getting out with that kind of food door lock so I've been adding a second spring loaded clip to that to keep her in. This is what's dumb about all the cages cause they'll put a lot of security into the main door and then make everything else flimsy and insecure.

Nice review.

The metallurgical results will be negative. At this point it's a rare day they are possitive.
I saw that cage yesterday with a grey in it, nice bang for the buck. I would also not trust the food latches. Just my .02

Be Big,

Additional thoughts:

Pro: Has a great toy hook. Strong, sturdy, and has 3 recessed areas and a loop, designed to fit four toys or more. Perfect to hang a hanging forage toy. Birds also love climbing up and down it.

Con: Toy hook is very thick, so the small, triangle quick links cannot fit on it. I have to use the slightly larger ones that are actually an oval. Also, it is very tall, so the average conure-sized toy is too short for it. Requires an extension to be the right height, or longer toys. Height of toy hook wouldn't be an issue if we're talking about an African Grey or Amazon, however.

Additional Con: Good luck covering the cage, if you're a believer in that. With the toy hook, the cage is well over 6 feet tall, and even without it, the cage is huge.

Would this cage be suitable for a White Bellied Caique?

Ok So I bought this cage for my WB Caique........2 hours, 2 people, 1 sliced finger, 2 sore backs, and 2 headaches later the cage is finished And keep in mind part of my husband's jo is to put together cages at work.... needless to say this one wasn't easy-easy :roll:

I like the size of this cage....It's massive!!!! Wish the toy stand on the play part could fit into the opposite side of the cage....in my home it won't work where it's positioned. Oh well........I also wish the cups were not on top of each other......but overall I think the cage was a good buy.

How have you guys hung toys from the top of the cage? Or do i have it set up wrong? The very top of my cage is solid- the bottom of the play tray......or should I put the grate without a handle in first and then the tray on top? Not sure that would fit.......

I have a twirly rope swing for my boy- but with the top not having bars I have no idea how to hang it......
