30x18 and less than half inch spacing sounds pretty good! :) The downside is that this cage has guillotines style cages which can be a safety risk

I'd definitely recommend against that style of door for sure. It's far to risky in my opinion.

guillotines style
On top of the door style, that pattern on the door (looks almost like a heart) is one I had on my first cage years ago, and when my bird moved out into another cage and I put a different bird in, she later got her beak stuck on the curled part of the design - luckily I was home and freed her immediately but it definitely spooked me and her! Those funky wiggle patterns appear on many bird cage doors.

edit; If you can only find cages with guillotine doors, you could tie strap them closed, and if the main door is guillotine, clip it closed with a little SS keyring clip. It´s just important they are secured in some way or another :) Welcome to the Avenue! :bliss:

Unfortunately most of those small flight cages have doors and designs that are not safe :( I've seen so many birds lose toes or their lives to cages like that.

My single Linnie is in this cage. I have white and it does come off of the base to make it tabletop. I know it's expensive but the quality and features are just perfect.


Perhaps you can find another flight cage that sits on a removable frame.

That cage is not huge. Even a single bird needs a big cage. Flight cages are good and not all that expensive. Do you have to put the bird in your bedroom? Locations are best where people gather such as a living room.

If you have the height space, I would suggest this one and not use the stand: https://www.chewy.com/yaheetech-54-in-rolling-metal-large/dp/378827 It is 24.5x17, so will fit where a 30x18 one would. The main door is a great style. It still has guillotine feeder doors, but that's much better than the main door being that style. I have this same cage in a different brand, it sits on a shelving unit, my single parrotlet lives in it and it feels like a mansion to her. I used to have 2 linnies in it until I went bigger, and they were happy.

Mine are also in my bedroom, which IS the hub of my house... so it's the perfect place since it's literally where I eat, sleep, work, relax, all-in-one. They'd have lots of alone time if they were in the living room or elsewhere.

Edit: and the platinum is a very light grey. Not stark white white, but still very light. Edit again: oh wait, it comes in white too! Didn't see that at first...

Bar spacing is 3/4", not suitable for such a small bird! It would be a safety risk as well as difficult for your bird to climb

How much time will your Linnie be out the cage for daily?
