How Big Does a Parrot Cage Need to Be?

Parrots are intelligent, social creatures who need plenty of space to exercise, play, and express their natural behaviors.

Wingspan Wins

Your parrot's cage should be at least one and a half times the width of their wingspan in all directions (length, width, and height).

Activity Matters

Consider your parrot's species and activity level. A playful budgie needs room to zoom around, while a calmer cockatoo might be content with a slightly smaller space.

More Than Just a Perch

It's not just about flying! Your parrot needs space to climb, preen, forage, and explore. Include various perches at different heights and textures, swings, toys, and foraging opportunities to keep them mentally and physically stimulated.

Sharing is Caring

If you have multiple parrots, they'll need even more space. Double the minimum wingspan rule for pairs and add 50% for each additional bird.

Quality Counts

A well-made cage is an investment in your parrot's well-being. Opt for sturdy materials like stainless steel or wrought iron, with appropriate bar spacing to prevent escape or injuries.
