    Hi, I was just wondering what cages you use, for a Meyer's, or for a bird around that size. Looking for something under $200 that will be comfortable.

    I would recommend an Avian Adventures Chiquita but it's not under $200 unless you can find a really good sale.
    You could also consider an A&E 32X23 play top but, again, not less than $200.
    There are flight cages that are cheaper but I don't use those with any of my Pois.

    These cages are worth saving up for.

    Ok thank you for the reply, I think I will widen my budget so I can get a nice, comfortable cage for my poi.

    Thanks again!

    I have made mistakes in buying mid-size cages due to cheaper costs. But kept upgrading.
    In retrospect, I should have waited and saved up for nice cage, large enough to give Joey extra space to grow into.

    i like the play top style cage. They go on sale from time to time as I realize it is a lot more to spend.
    If your bird will be in the cage all day, I sincerely recommend no smaller than this one, one size up even better....

    I am planning on getting a Meyer's after doing extensive research into all types of birds. Did none of the cages I put seem to be appropriate for a Meyer's?

    The 32-inch long one should be good. I wouldn't go any smaller. Larger is always better if you have the space and money. I kept my Meyer's in an HQ cage that was 32 X 23 X 65.

    Good luck!

    I'm recommending that you get the largest cage possible for your Meyers. My Meyers is an extremely active bird and uses every square inch of her cage. She even hover flies in the middle of the cage.

    Were those dimensions you gave of just the cage, or the whole thing including the stand?

    I think the inside height was 41" and the whole thing with the stand was 65."

    Yes. I've never purchased from that vendor but I would stick with one of the known manufacturers such as A&E, Avian Adventures, etc. JMHO.
    As for your other post: the first one...bar spacing too small, bar gauge too small. The last two....again, would avoid those, for the same reason I wrote above.
    Watch for cage sales, purchase from a known and reputable vendor, put money aside for better quality cage. Avoid cages with tops that open. I have two of those BUT the tops are always locked.

    Maybe someone here who has purchased one of those can give you some information about the cages.
