    I have spent months researching every breed imagineable, before I finally realised an Alex is my ultimate bird. Baby is approx weeks in picture, should be weaned around Christmas time.
    Going to need heaps of advice on diet and training.
    Looking at cages, thinking about 16-19mm wire spacing about right. Please advise if I am wrong. With this wire spacing, biggest cage I can find is
    CAGE ONLY ( INTERNAL ) 79.5 W x 54.5 D x 88 H ( approx 2.5 ft (75cm)x 2 ft (60cm)x 3 ft (90cm).
    Would love bigger if anyone knows of suitable cage in Australia, or if different wire spacing suitable?
    Was advised best to get appropriate wire spacing to make easier for bird to move about cage easily.

    OMG what a cutie, I live in Australia and have 2 Alex they are really such gentle giants :heart: have included a picture of Oscar eating bottlebrush flowers (His favourite) and my cage set ups, remember they are big birds they will need the space. Mine spend atleast 2-3 hr out of their cages per day. IMG_6061.JPG IMG_6072.JPG

    I think it will suit, and my first Alex's name was Tori. Both names mean (or are derived from) bird.
