Hello fellow bird lovers welcome to Bird Cages For Cockatiels. If you are anything like me you want what is best for your little buddy. Cockatiels need a cage that is big enough to at least allow them to flap their wings.
If your cockatiel spends the majority of his/her time in their cage then your cage needs to be big enough to accommodate the many toys needed to keep him entertained. Cockatiels or any bird is a very curious creature by nature. Their minds are always going so you need to not only provide physical stimulation for your cockatiel but also mental stimulation.
If you do allow your cockatiel out then some cages actually come with a play-station on top of the cage. The cage I have for my cockatiel does not have this but he does have a play-station which is in the window. I originally bought it for a female cockatiel I had years ago. She never went near the thing. Binkie(name of my male cockatiel) is on it every day. He loves it. He will perch on it with his stuffed bear and look out the window for long periods of time.
So if you can get a cage with a play-station on the top your cockatiel may enjoy it quite a bit but if not you can always purchase one separately. Actually having a separate play station may be better since you can move it around to different locations – like where you are hanging out.
Your cage size will also depend on how many cockatiels you are going to have. Many people like to have more than one at a time since they will keep each other company. The problem with that though is they may focus and bond with each other and may not become your little buddies.
So where can you go to look at various types of bird cages for cockatiels? As you know there are many places you can go to buy a bird cage and for now I am still looking around. Many places have a great selection of cages as well as competitive prices. It doesn’t hurt to look at some various places online that sell cages for birds. Let’s just let our fingers do the walking as we check out these various places.
