Budgies Cage Size And Position At Sitting Desk

Recommended Posts

I have budgies and I learned now that cage should be at eye level of walking person. But what about sitting person?

Budgies cage is on my desk. The desk table is two meters long and about one meter deep. The cage currently is 80cm x 40cm x 40cm and is aligned along the desk length, sitting at the right back corner.

My eyes are at the same level as the top of the cage. When I stand up, my eyes level is significantly higher. Would you suggest to move it up, leaving some desk space below the cage where I can do my homework while the cage is on four long legs, or to get a cage that is two times higher and it still uses this desk space?

i.e.

Current position:

My desk space with a monitor that is about 50cm high. || Bird cage (about 80cm high).

Concerns:

- bird cage possibly too small,

- my desk space possibly too small,

- unused space at the top.

Version 1 of new position:

My desk space with a monitor that is about 50cm high. || Bird cage (about 160cm high).

In this case

+ birds can choose to be at eye level of either sitting or standing human.

+ The birds cage is doubled in height, but

- still short.

Version 2 of new position:

Level 2: Nothing || Bird cage (about 80cm high) is elevated 80cm above desk level, there is possibly space for another person to work.

Level 1: My doubled desk space.

? In this case the birds are a bit above eye level at all times when I sit, but at eye level of walking people. (Good or bad?)

+ I get my desk space increased twofold.

Version 3 of new position:

level 2: Bird cage (>120cm long, >120cm high, 40cm deep - elevated above doubled desk space - on four long legs.

level 1: My doubled desk space.

In this case

? Birds are a bit above eye level at all times when I sit, but at eye level of walking people. (Good or bad?)

+  I get my desk space increased twofold.

+ The cage is also significantly larger and longer.

+ Space above is used more effectively.

...

I have a screen at my desk, but I don't play music or videos on it. The TV is in another area in the house.

  • Is it important for birds to be at eye level of sitting people or walking people or both?

  • Do they need a longer or higher cage? What is more important? They might start to breed soon.

Please help and give me advice about this. How did this work out for you?

Thank you.
