    Hi all, long time no see (speak) but still here.

    Does anyone have a suitable cage for a cockatiel? my daughter has inherited this bird and all the cages I have are really for Africans, ideally it needs to be at least 50cm by 50cm (he has a long tail!) preferably stainless bars set about 1 - 2cm apart, he has lived all his life in a cage of 2cm spaced bars, it seems that as soon as you go to this size of cage all that is available are the dark, heavy looking epoxy coated bars ok for bigger birds but I am not happy with them for a cockatiel, alternatively, does anyone have any suggestions, we have trawled all the usual stockists but not found what we want. We live in Essex but will collect or arrange collection by carrier if it flat packs.

    Thanks in advance

    Nigel

    Thanks Pettsie I have had a look at the dimensions of this cage but it is the depth that's a bit short, it seems that as soon as you need to go wider or deeper than about 45cm you have to start looking at the "prison bar" types, the problem we have is this particular Cockatiel has a long long tail which he keeps catching on the cage and we would like to get round this for him, so thanks for the offer but I think we need to keep looking.

    Hi Nigel,

    Long time no hear! Our 2 CAGs share (to sleep) a Montana cage with a 1.5cm var spacing and plenty of space. It is in a sort of gunmetal colour but I think you can get an antique version. It is 112 x 85 x 48cm and is plenty roomy for 2 CAGs overnight but would be palatial for a tiel. I'm afraid we bought it second hand, so I'm not sure what model it is (dome-topped with a main door and 4 seed bow doors) but I'm sure if you checked e-bay you could find something similar. We had ours 2nd hand around 8 years ago and it's still in really good condition. Well worth spending a bit more on.

    I wish you all the best with your search - I have a soft spot for tiels!
