    Coupled Conure Cages

    I have two conures and I was advised to keep them in the same cage together and get a larger cage. Any recommendations for a cage that will be fit for two? I can afford around $350 max. Also, have any of you built PVC play gyms before and want to share pics/ideas? Thanks!
