I can't get the cage I want for ages as.it isn't in stock anywhere. Can you suggest a cage that they could have for a week or two with plenty of time out?

Do you know their wingspan? I can’t find it anywhere!

3.4 meters was the first google search result that came up! I think they are slightly out with that!

I can't find it either. They are 8 inches long if that helps at all?

Would this be okay? They wouldn't be in it too long except the night and maybe a few hours during the day depending on what was going on

It could work for a little while, what flight cage are you planning to get?

They are very, very rare in the United States. You may find a few members from Europe, Canada, or Australia who have owned them in the past or know someone who has owned them.
