Oh, I didn’t see that! The second one is good too, and they are both commonly used cages. I guess it’s whatever that will for your lifestyle. The first one is big, but the 2nd one is way bigger. So it depends. Do you have space for a large cage?

I have found that a tape measure helps me envision the cage much more than the measurements. I recommend using a tape measure to make sure you have a good place for the cage.

Go for the largest bar space that the recommendation list for bar spacing allows.
As this will usually mean a larger cage + your bird can get to watch easily through the bars.
Actually, no! Many many accidents occur because bird owners are told inaccurate information like this. Always, and i mean ALWAYS get a bar spacing that is suitable for your type of bird. " Your bird can get to watch easily through the bars", more like your bird will definitely get its head/body stuck through the bars, escape, severely injure themselves or even cause death!!

Either of the last 2 cages would be good. The length and width are the same. The major difference is the height.

Too small, a cage needs to be at least 18 by 18

What is your current cages size? And what country are you in (sorry if you already said)

Too small and the bar spacing is too wide. I really would recommend pulling out a tape measure and trying to visualise the space - I think you'd be shocked at how small even 18x18 is. By the time you've added perches, bowls, toys and so on, the poor bird will barely be able to move.

This cage is a wonderful choice:

And cheaper than that tiny cage you posted earlier
