Hi! This is my first post here and I'm new to owning birds. I've recently started looking into getting a cockatiel and I've found a cage online but I'm not sure if it's good or not, I've been into stores but their cages are really expensive and I went to look online for cheaper options. Cage is below as well as the dimensions on a website that I found.

I'd say this is a suitable option given the financial restriction. It has horizontal bars which is good, as they do love to climb. However I'd be a little concerned about the door security, if it's a simple latch as it looks in the picture, your tiel can quickly learn to open the door themselves.
Personally I chose the tensioned door ones so that they can't physically open the door themselves. I had friends that had to put a combo lock as their bird got really good at getting out.
Other than that this should be good.

Thanks! I'll look into the door and if it's what you said I'll be sure to try and put a lock on it, I didn't know they could break out of cages haha

If you want something cheaper you can get a bit smaller cage but not to small or else it will feel suffocated
