    My Glenn, 18yo, has done well with 3/4" bars and the AV said MOST adult Ringnecks can handle up to 7/8".

    Personally, I wouldn't do more 1/2" for a baby, but that really depends on the baby. The idea is that the baby shouldn't be able to get its head through. Remember, it only takes once for your little Houdini to get stuck trying to escape or get back inside.

    For most of the IRNs, I'd stick to 1/2" to 3/4" spaced bars.

    I don't know what cage you are looking at, but I'd highly recommend sticking to "squared" corner cages over "rounded" corner cages.
