Hi how many budgies can I fit in my new cage. I am currently breeding two budgies but I just got in a new double cage, it has 4 doors for food/water, 2 doors for access to the budgies and a divider down the middle for separation (note I also have many spare toys). The dimensions of the whole cage are 85cm x 50 x 50, how many budgies can I put in there? p.s. I also hand tame all my birds before breeding which means I can give them a couple hours outside the cage daily. thanks for any advise you could leave me with.
So basically this; is the cage in question. The sizing is; depth 45 cm, width 76 cm, height 90 cm. Currently I only have the two birds but as we would like to get more in the future we were wondering how many birds would this house potentially? Please note that this is the image of the cage from where it was advertised and I purchased it, the set up will be very different and that horrible perch is being replaced by natural eucalyptus branches from our yard. I understand that it will rely on the nature of the birds themselves and not to be creating an imbalances in gender (currently I have a hen and cock bird who get along swimmingly so i'm hesitant to alter that but my father also wants birds of his own). We have two other cages but since one was given to us and was designed for rats it may take some altering to be made good for birds and the other is smaller, probably housing two birds at the maximum - better housing only one. The end game will be the complete conversion of our woodshed into a three flight aviary but for now, how many birds could be housed reasonably in this cage? My instincts say four at the max and no more but I'd like to know what you more experienced handlers think about it. Thanks for any and all advice in advance xx
