I’m not sure that there is a perfect cage for everyone, but I can give you some general guidelines. I believe that you should purchase the largest cage that you can afford and that you have space for in your home. A caged bird that gets plenty of quality exercise will be healthier and happier and live a much longer life than one living its life in a small cage. In my opinion the perfect length would be about 6 feet long. If you place the perches near the top and at either end of this cage the birds will get plenty of exercise flying back and forth. However they will get BETTER QUALITY exercise flying from the bottom of the cage to the upper perches. For this reason I would suggest placing the food dishes on or near the floor of the cage so that the birds have to fly back up to the perches after each meal. Be sure to place the food dishes away from any over hanging perches so that the food will not become soiled.

This cage comes with a divider, making it easier to catch the birds when it is inserted. During the breeding season I replace the wire divider with a solid divider that I had made at a plastic fabrication shop. This allows me to use both sides as a breeding cage and keeps the pairs from seeing each other which could cause distractions to their breeding activity.
