I'm planning on building my own cockatiel cage to fit on top of my wardrobe, and I would like opinions on possible cage dimensions. The cage will probably be about 45" wide x 13" deep x 18" tall if I make it a generic shape. Would those dimensions be big enough for 2 cockatiels (that would be out of the cage for 3-12 hours a day)?

P.s. I really can't put the cage anywhere else in my room.

45 wide is great but 13 deep is to shallow... It really should be 18-20 inches deep in my opinion. The bird should be able to fully extend its wings without touching the sides.

. It really should be 18-20 inches deep in my opinion. The bird should be able to fully extend its wings without touching the sides.
And if this is for TWO birds it needs to be twice this. Especially if they'll be in the cage for 12 hours. They have to be able to move around and stretch while in there for that amount of time.

So ideally for two birds, you take the proper dimensions for one (18x18x18 being the absolute minimum) and double it.
