@aooratrix and @Shezbug do you know if the doors on your corner cages can be hung the other way? Hinges on the left, latch on the right?

And how wide do the doors open? Do they open up to lay flush with the cage wall or do they stick out?

Despite the concerns with the corner cages, I am considering one because Buzzard's cage is in a corner right now & I have to pull his cage away from the wall whenever I need to access the bowl doors on the far side of the cage.
Mine can't be hung the other way, and it will not open flush with the cage wall. Truly, I hate this cage. It is SO hard to clean and only had one layer of powdercoat.

I agree with @Shezbug on the room: Annie has plenty of room, much more than a traditional cage. However, as mentioned, it is hard to clean, the double pans suck, and you almost have to climb in the cage to hang toys or perches.

I have an AE (Animal Environments ) Macaw stainless steel cage. I've had it for 21 years and it's still good as new except for the pucky flimsy plastic tray and the wheels finally wore out. Not bad for two GWs living in it for 13 years and one for 20 years.

They are super duper pricey, but last forever.


They also have the Luxor now that they didn't have when I bought mine.

They look quite similar to the featherland brand that is available here.

I had an (used) A&E 30x40 for Sam's first cage, I had the A&E Corner cage for his second cage and now I have a 36x48 Stainless Steel Kings European style cage. The worst thing about the A&E cages was the thin power coating. The corner cage was great for how much room he had and I put towels down over the floor (because he had falling issues) of the cage so cleaning wasn't so bad but hanging toys and perches was always a hassle. The worst part of it was how Sam stripped parts of the paint off and would chew on it. I had to get a SS cage and was lucky to find one on Craigslist.

One nice thing about the corner was the ceiling space that we got from the flat roof was great. It really depends on the bird. I wouldn't get another powder coated cage again for him. The powder coat works fine for my conure (HQ I think) but those big beaks make short work of powder coats.

I am so thankful that Buzz is such an easy going guy! I'd love to score a stainless someday though. :dreamyeyes:

Corner's Limited has aviaries, but you'd need to shell out a thousand bucks at least.
