See our helpful chart with general information on selecting bird cages by size and breed.

When it comes to bird cages, we strongly believe that bigger is usually always better when choosing a "home" for your feathered friend. If your bird appears to be larger than a “small” but smaller than a “medium”, Quality Discount Cages almost always recommends a larger cage.

There may be some exceptions to the “bigger is always better” rule of thumb. If you are among the fortunate few who have the opportunity to keep your bird or birds out of the cage for extended periods of time every day, then you may be okay with a somewhat smaller cage.

But even so, small bird cages should at least be large enough to allow your bird to fully spread his or her wings and to sit on the top perch and still have enough head room. Additionally, the tail feathers should not touch the floor of the cage. All of the breed recommendations for small bird cages made by Quality Discount Cages are general guidelines. It is important to evaluate your individual pet’s needs to determine the appropriate size to purchase.

It is also important to be sure that the small bird cages you are considering purchasing for your pet are safe. Safety considerations for small bird cages include:

Bar Spacing
Space between bars on small bird cages should be narrow enough to prevent injury or escape. The bars are too far apart if your bird can fit his or her head between them.

Toxic Materials
Small bird cages made from wrought iron steel or cold rolled steel usually have a powder coating. Cages made by responsible, reputable manufacturers are either 100% free of lead and zinc, or contain levels well below what is considered to be safe. Stainless steel small bird cages do not contain lead or zinc and are naturally non-toxic to birds.

For that reason, stainless steel is also your best bet for feeding dishes in small bird cages, or any size cage for that matter, because they absolutely, positively do not contain lead or zinc. (Do not use other types of metal feeding dishes unless you know for certain they are bird safe.)

Another advantage with stainless steel feeding dishes is they last a long time, maybe even forever, and they are easy to sanitize because they are 100% non-porous. On the other hand, plastic or ceramic feeding dishes can absorb bacteria and can be very difficult to sanitize. (And ceramic can break.)

If you’re new to bird ownership, you may be surprised to learn how important it is to have perches that are appropriate for your bird. First, they should be the right size. If it is too big or too small in diameter, your bird will have difficulty getting a good grip. The best perches are natural, irregularly shaped wood (as are the branches birds perch on in the wild).

The contours and irregular shape of a natural wood perch actually helps to prevent foot cramping in birds, because it naturally encourages them to use different muscles to hang on at different areas of the perch. This is important for the health and comfort of your bird’s feet (which they are on at all times…so it’s very important).

We carry many small bird cages that come with natural perches such as manzanita, rosewood, mangrove wood and others.
