    This cage for a Senegal?

    Hey Everybody, I recently cleaned down an old cage that I got used and would like to use it for a Senegal parrot. However, it seems kinda tight. The dimensions are 18W x 18D X 32H. If this is deemed too small, I will opt for a larger one. It looks fine, but most sources ask for bigger...
