Yes sounds fine for three or four budgies.

For me it's not as much the cage as it is temperament. I have cages that can theoretically hold more than two budgies but my males fight. They even have to take turns outside their cages. I would always have a plan B. I had three budgies in a huge cage made for many budgies but adding one was a disaster. One of the poor males nearly got his foot ripped off.

Thanks rachelm I have changed it up now. I took that cage apart and might use the parts to make a door for my bird room. I am not really good with woodworking but may be able to get help from my son in law. They bought a house and he is a very handy guy. He really works hard though so I don't want to pressure him. I was thinking of using the bottom of the cage on a wall to put perches and toys. It would be good for photography. I will paint my room soon and then post the new look.

I have sure noticed that my birds enjoy "ledges" as well as perches. Each nesting house has a piece of tile set on top of the roof to prevent the wood from becoming too soiled. I recently turned the tiles "rough-side-up" to promote natural wear on their nails. But my point is: consider perhaps providing some nice flat ledges (safe bark species etc.) near the top third of your bird room. Looking at a video of birds in the wilds of Australia it struck me that we give them the equivalent of tiny branches, but seldom a nice fat "tree".

Very interesting I will look into adding an element like this. I did have a part of a tree that I cooked and hollowed a bit but it attracted too much attention for nesting. It was supposed to be decoration so I put it on a shelf and haven't been using it. Also it did not have bark on it. Bark falls off and messes up the room.

I think that cage would be crowded with more than two budgies in it. Since you already have three, I would hesitate to rock the boat, assuming the three are at peace with one another. Gender matters, too. If you have three boys getting along fine and you add a hen, watch out! If you want more budgies, maybe look into getting a second cage, or a wider one. Remember, the tallness of the cage doesn't matter- it's width that gives them more flying room across. And you need enough perch space so they are not sitting shoulder to shoulder.

 

I just realized this question is going in two threads. I'm locking this one so that the discussion can stay all in one place. :)
