Can't you just take the side of an older cage and wire it to the bottom? Then all you have to do is place a paper on the floor when cleaning or moving the cage.

Yes they do. They have a little thing on each wheel that you push down to lock it in place. Either way, the cage is heavy enough it won't roll anywhere!

It does have a seed catch that works great if you block the 1/2" opening that runs along the width of the cage, just about the tray and below the seed catcher with paper.

No, it doesn't have a seed catcher (unlike the last cage I owned) and even with the seed catcher I used one of the cage skirts to help with the debris. With this new cage I just put the skirt onto this new cage. It works well when it's tucked underneath a bit. I've got 2 very messy cockatiels.

No seed catcher comes with it. Although I am sure you could find one that fits. I have seen them for sale on a few websites. My finches do not need. One because what I feed them is something they love so cause no waste.

For anyone wanting to know this. While it is just fine for parakeets, I would not recommend it for anything smaller than GOULDIAN Finches. Gouldians are larger than most other finches and mine are JUST big enough to be in this cage. The advertised size of the bar spacing (and also stated on the box) is 1/2 in. However, when I got mine....the bar spacing was actually a little more than 5/8 in.

No it's not! If you take the top part off you get the dome of the cage and nothing covering the floor of the dome. I find that just buying a small carrying cage from Petco.com or other websites works just as well.

Question

How do you put the cage together?!?!

I'm following the directions and Step 3 is really confusing. The only instructions is to "see picture" and the picture is super tiny. There's these 'loose bars' on each side that I think are to help lock the cage sides together. I can't figure out how they go and the instructions are really awful.

It took us a little while to put it together also. It really takes two people to accomplish this. It kept collapsing into itself, but eventually we got it to stay together easier, once we put it onto the base. And yes, those little "loose bars" are definitely meant to lock the sides into place. Pull them to the outside of the cage and snap them into place where one side connects to the other side. I also took black wire and wrapped around it and the bar, to keep it from popping back off.

I know how hard it is to find perches fitting that specific cage, so I usually buy the Booda Comfy Perches or other wood perches that stretch halfway across the cage! You can find those at any Petco store or petco.com. I also use the sand perches, as they work wonders for my birds' feet.
Good luck!

Do you know anyone who is handy with tools? It would be very easy (and inexpensive) to just get some dowels at the hardware store the diameter you want, cut them to the correct length, and then cut a small slice in the end for the cage wire to hold them in place.

Good Luck!

We have this cage for our conure and have a parakeet also. The bar spacing is quite a bit wider on this than the parakeet cage. Looking at our parakeet and the cage it would seem that she could get her head through the bars. She likes hanging out in this cage but we are in the room when she is in it and the door is open.
