HI, i am getting a female Mexican Red Head Amazon as you probably know. I have been looking for a shut within and i found a nice looking used one. It cost 209.99 and it is still in the box! Well anyay, it also comes with free shipping! LOL im done with truism that. Here are the features with it:
Bar Spacing: 3/4"
Overall Dimensions: 40 1/2"W x 31 1/2"D x 67"H with Seed Skirt
Interior Dimensions without stand: 32"Wx23"Dx48"H
Demensions next to Stand( cage only) 32"W x 23"D x 67"H
Height of the play top:32"Wx23"Dx11"H
Removable Bottom Grid
Removable Bottom metal Tray
Nest Box Door (36.5" x 13.5")
5 Feed Doors
4 30oz Stainless Steel Cups(5" diameter ) for Inside Cage
2 - 20oz Stainless Steel Cups(5" diameter) for Play top
2 Perches (play top and inside cage)
WROUGHT IRON POWDER COATED
Do you think i should get it? It is said to be a 700 dollar pro as the said it was for macaw/amazon/cockatoo size (by macaw/amazon/and cockatoo i mean the smaller amazons, cockatoos and mini macaws.) I will give my Lucy 4-6 hours time out of the round up everyday.
why don't you just go on petsask.coms and ask?
That seems like a awesome cage for any larger bird, resembling a Mexican Red Headed Amazon! It has good bar spacing so no limb will get caught, enough room to stretch its wings, plus it have enough room for it to actually play in! Lucy will love that coop, I hope you go for it!
Be sure that you do continue to allow her excercise period.
Sounds like a large amount for a great cage. Now spoil her with plenty of foraging toys. http://www.theperchstore.net/nainfoto.ht...
My amazon loves these toys. Especially the barrel of fun, tiki takeout, and the snack rake puzzle. The toys impart them something to work on while you are out.
Granted, this is all but assessment. What's important is that your bird must have room to fully stretch out its wings, lacking touching the cage walls. It must be able to sit on the perch and not have its chief and/or tail touching the cage floor/ceiling.
The rule of thumb, generally, is that you want the largest cage that you can afford, both monetarily and contained by the space you have. The smaller the cage, the more time you should allow the parrot out of the shut within. If the parrot will be spending a good deal of time in the cage, then you must have a larger coop with an adequate amount of toys to keep it entertain.
I think that your cage is doable, although I would go for a larger round up. The features look to be in order and are everything I would want (with the exception of the play top :P ). Just make certain that the cage is from a reputable manufacturer. Make sure it does not own zinc and lead in its construction, as those can be outstandingly toxic to birds when ingested (and they will chew their cages, so...).
Also, make sure there's a return policy. If the powder finish is bubbling, flaking, cracking, etc., you will want to return it. Also, you will want to engender sure that the bars are sturdy. If you can physically pull the bar apart, return the cage: it is cheaply made and should not be used for your parrot.
But that price seems acceptable. I would ignore the $700 claim, if only because I see these types of cage for far less than that, and at those sizes as well. Still, that doesn't mean it isn't a apposite value. ;)
