Would this cage be good for 2-4 green cheeks?

I’m buying a baby mooncheek and a suncheek conure!
And I currently have 2 green cheeks
They get along with all the other birds but I’m not sure how they’d get along with other green cheeks
I’ll probably just keep 2 in there but if someone could tell me if it WOULD be okay for 4?

I don't think its big enough for 2 to be honest. 30" x 23" x 32" - one of mine has a cage this size, and I feel it's just large enough for one if that one has lots of out of cage time.

I haven’t been able to find anything bigger with bar space small enough

I definitely would not put 4 in that cage.

@webchirp do you have a cage with 4 greenies in it?

I found this one real quick, didn’t do full research, bar spacing 1/2”, dimensions: 37” x 23” x 60”

Someone in the reviews put 2 together so it’s twice as big. Check out their photos!
Looks like they have a couple green cheeks in it. Something like this would work better…though I don’t think it’s big enough for 4 still…I guess it depends on their bond with each other and their out of cage time…

I would not put 4 in that one because the spaciousness is due to height, and green cheeks use horizontal space more, so it's just too small. You want them to be able to comfortably travel horizontally, not vertically as much. Look for something that's wide enough to accommodate 4, something like @Zara showed you, which is 64" in length, as opposed to the one above which is almost half that wide. Or that link I showed you above, if you connect two together, which would be even wider.

We have this cage for our conure and it is wonderful. the bar size is small enough. The divider is handy because you could start by dividing them. I do think it would be cozy for four and they would have to get along well but it would work if they got lots of time outside their cage, all got along well and you could divide them each night into two pairs.

Two cages with a removable divider in the middle to make two cages or one large cage
This is how I would handle it - Especially when so many people have stories of their GCCs needing “timeouts” because of spats.

I nearly got a corner cage myself, but was talked out of it here - they’re so neat looking and I love the concept, except apparently they’re a pain in the butt to clean and decorate

Then what would be the best cage size out of those for 2?

I would say the A and E cage. It is long enough that our conure can actually get good flights and with the divider they can be separated if needed.

I have had a family of five and have used a double flight in the past to help with bonding. I definitely recommend this cage if you are planning four. Too cramped of quarters can cause aggression and if you’re lucky in the beginning, down the road hormones will cause issues.
