Cheap Cages? - 07/11/07 10:33 PM

As some of you in my other blog (Jail Bird) read, magie (blue) has a small isue with excaping through of corner of my cage. THe cage is not damaged or anything, its just poorly constructed. ANyway, i was just wondering where some of you got your cages. I got mine from Wallmart, go figure. Anyway, I already checked Petco. And they are all really expensive. I have 2 birds so i need a large cage. Any thing you know would really help.

Bin o' Budgies or Pet Valu might be good. Either way, it's recommended that you make your own cage if you don't want to spend money. It's not hard - just get pieces of board and wood and make it into a square or a rectangle. Now place mesh all around the sides.

Like between 50-80 dollars. Needs a stand too.

We bought Casper's house at PetSmart. We won't buy any animals there, but supplies are ok. It is easily big enough for 2 and was around $40. I agree that PetCo's were expensive.

I shopped around online, locally, and like on Craigslist and ebay. Ebay seemed the way to go just cuz there's lots of options and so many that you can usually get them cheap even with the $20 shipping. Eventually though, I bought mine at a local pet store. I went to one, too expensive. Went to another one and SOLD!! Really cheap. You just gotta be determined and do some legwork. Good luck!

before buying or building a cage look on the forum for correct cage sizes.keets need room to fly and play around in. this post gives a breakdown on recommeded cage sizes,take into account if your going to be getting more birds which is normally the case.good luck and just in case your wonder what size cage my five babies live in it is 5 feet 5 inchs tall,almost as tall as I am.

This is more than the budget, but it comes with a stand and it is huge. I am thinking of adding a fourth and there still would be tons of room!!
