Finding the perfect flight cage is easy when you know the recommended bar spacing for your species. Proper spacing ensures your bird stays safely inside her cage and isn't able to wedge a wing or head partially through.

Small Birds: Finch, Canary, Parrotlet, Parakeet, LovebirdRecommended bar spacing: No more than 1/2"
Medium Birds: Cockatiel, Conure, Lory, SenegalRecommended bar spacing: 1/2" to no more than 7/8"
Large Birds: African Grey, Amazon, Macaw, CockatooRecommended bar spacing: 3/4" to no more than 1-3/8"
