I got a Severe Macaw last winter and bought a cage that was recommended for that size parrot. Brought him home, put in a couple of toys.... it became pretty small, pretty quick!

I now have him in a 6 x 4 x 6 condo and he loves it! At least I think he does. Point is, get the largest cage you can afford with the proper wire dimensions for that size bird. I found the larger cage is much easier to keep clean!!!!

Watch on Craigslist, people are selling nice cages all the time. And you can get them at really good prices.

Instead of throwing a tantrum and name calling when they share their hard earned knowlage try saying thank you.



Birds need room to move, to spread their wings and they need environmental enrichment to prevent them from going insane. Yes birds can go crazy. Especially intelligent birds which budgies are.

If you would like to keep birds and don't want to provide a cage big enough for budgies to be able to fly a bit and have room to play consider finches. They are really small so a flight cage or a couple of the does not take up much space. They are also very hardy, don't require much interaction outside of cage cleaning and feeding and they can be really pretty. They do best i groups so keeping 3-4 of them is best and this is still doable without turning a whole room into a bird cage.

How old are you? Like 11? You need to go back to school and learn how spell and form sentences.
