Hello! I have four cockatiels and I am going to have 6 more. A friend of mine is going to give them to me because he is leaving the city and there is no one who can leave them to. The cage that I have is enough for my 4 babies but considering the coming 6 they are going to be 10 totally. So I plan to buy a new cage, bigger than what I have, to provide enough room for all birds. I am double minded between these two cages and I would like to give me an advice. Which one do you think is gonna be more comfortable and providing more space for executing flights for my babies? http://www.birdscomfort.com/flight_bird_cage.html or http://www.birdscomfort.com/parrot_aviary_cage.html
Thank you in advance!

Hi there
The first cage is a nice cage its similar to what a few of us on here have but its only big enough for 3 cockatiels maybe 4 there is no way 10 would fit in there, the second one is bigger but I still don't think its enough room for ten cockatiels to be comfortable in, you would probably be better off having them in more then one cage, maybe someone else has some advice on that but I would think you would need a massive cage to have 10 fit comfortably in and I don't know if there is any that come that big.

Here's a couple pics of my cages, one houses 10 tiels one houses 15 budgies when I don't have pairs out breeding, but they're also community cages the tiels and budgies sleep together and live together happily (this isn't always the case though)

i've been told you can get the cage at pet smart, but mine are specially made, not bought from any pet store

and here is one of them - before any birds toys or perches

Hi. Like Laura said, the first cage would only comfortably fit 3-4. The second is just tall but not wide. Try adding another cage rather then getting one super large one. I doubt you'll be able to find one to accomodate 10 tiels...

I was going to suggest the one that Spike did too. Neither of the two you posted would be large enough for 10. The double flight would be good for 6-8 and i guess if they get heaps of time out of the cage you could squeeze 10 in. :)
