It has bits of rust here and there, and could do with a thorough clean. Does anyone out there want it? It should be collected from Surrey. It flatpacks. Not suitable for Umbrella 2 or Macaw, which is what I was hoping, more for two or three Greys, Ammys, that kind of size.

     

    Measurements:

    Front – back                    23”

    Top – bottom                   62” (highest point)

    Side – side                      54.5”

     

    It has three doors, each one 8” wide x 7.25” high, and the top opens up. When it’s collapsed, the longest bit is 57.25”, widest bit 26”.

    hi, this might sound a stupid question, but how far apart are the bars? I'm looking to get a large cage as an indoor aviary, but would be for smaller birds, ie budgies. thanks

    Hi Nicky

    If you want an indoor avairy I have a purpose built one, it flat packs, and currently holds 10 tiels and 1 nanday, all are moving into another cage, it was donated to me by June, and I am sure she would not mind it being used and passed on for such a worthy cause. Just let me know. I can send you a picture.
    My one aim is to serve the parrots in my care, to help those to weak to defend themselves, and bring alittle happiness into their lives, I prefer parrots to people but can handle them in moderation :)

    The bars are 18mm apart. I suspect not an ideal cage for budgies, but maybe cockatiels? Parakeets? The casters are there, but may need replacing. It seems such a shame not to use it.

    Gutted that I am so far away I am currently starting the process of, hopefully, adopting a BL bird and, although he comes with a cage would love to create a superb space for him that would allow him plenty of space with a view to possibly introduce a friend if he was deemed okay to share.

    Hi Crystal, that would be great,can you tell me what size it is please? sorry Doddie, don't want to mess you about, but will take Crystal up on her offer. If no BL member needs it, you could try free cycle, not doubt it would be snapped up pretty quickly.

    I was wondering where Brittone05 was located in case someone could help transport it half way or something?

    Doddie....would the cage fit in a 4x4 car do you think? I am going to the Berkshire show and could maybe bring it back to mine that would be a bit nearer to you Em, I am near King Lynn in Norfolk.

    Lesley, do your back seats fold? What car is it? It fits in our old A-Class Merc. which is a small car. Flatpack measurements are on the original post - try measuring your car... I am going to Berkshire, I could bring it up.

    That would be fabulous if you can get it to you Lesley. I don't drive and hubby is unable to at present due to an arm injury so would have to try to arrange a courier or similar to bring it from you that is my big problem Shall enquire as to whether we have anyone going your way.

    I have expressed an interest in offerning Archie the grey a forever home so this cage would be totally adorable for him

    I have a Honda CRV, setas fold down and can fit a double mattress in there with ease so I imagine it would go in. I am going to Berkshire on the Saturday and would happily bring it back to mine and can hang on to it until you can get it Em.

    If this is any good to you let me know...

    If you could I would be extremely grateful Lesley

    How far from where Archie is living at present are you as if we are deemed suitable to offer him a new forever home, we could maybe make arrangements for collecting both the same day?

     

    EDIT - after checking the RAC, I don't think I could arrange to get to you Lesley   It is a 13 hour round trip

    No, but I wouldn't mind meeting someone at services somewhere and driving it back to Manchester. That's not so far from Wirral for you then.

    Oh Helen if you could I would be eternally grateful and would happily sort out your fuel etc for you

    With my not driving it is a right pain

    Am now a proper member of BL too and hopefully I will be deemed suitable to offer Archie the grey a forever home

    I am going to the show but as I now only have a ford fiesta , and will have 2/3 birds with me, might just be to much a squeeze to bring back a cage as well, but if it will fit I can bring it back to Manchester.

    Doddie,

    The crucial question is whether it will fit into Crystal's Fiesta. Even if it flat packs I think it may be a struggle. But I guess it might be helpful for her to know what size it flatpacks to.

    Helen, on my original post, the one with the picture on it, I list the measurements, both when erected, and when flatpacked. Crystal needs to measure her car...

    Doreen, this thread is three years old. You might be better looking in your local small ads or on preloved.

    Good luck with the foster application.
