    Good not great!

    By Adoxy on Feb 26, 2021

    The material is fantastic super simple to install however, the door hinges to lock and open are very cheap plastic as knobs and the spring is so flimsy that it’s almost impossible to get the thing to open without using both fingers to pry it open.. other than that that is my complaint.

    poorly put together

    By Beth on Jun 26, 2020

    It comes assembly required and some of the holes don’t match up where they need to go, so I had it half put together with zip ties which they can easily chew through. I missed the window to return it so in the garbage it went.

    Became permanent home.

    My Quaker had a large free standing cage that she lived in for years but I bought this one for travel about three years ago. She doesn’t deal well with change so after she got used to it being different, she grew to like it better. I like how the whole front opens as it just remains open most of the time until it’s bed time. Very easy to clean. I had a little trouble getting all the parts to fit right at first (It kept popping apart) so I just used some zip ties to secure it. Carrying it by the cute handle is impossible for me; it’s heavy and unwieldy. It’s far easier to carry it by grabbing it on each side. I wouldn’t let that discourage a purchase though given that the weight is because My Quaker had a large free standing cage that she lived in for years but I bought this one for travel about three years ago.

    Great carry cage.

    By on

    A much more comfortable carry cage than the small ones we had. I would easily recommend this purchase.

    Great, well-made, sturdy cage

    By on

    This cage is everything you might want for a small cage. The bottom pulls out for easy cleaning, the food dishes are accessible from the outside, the whole front opens for easy access. My only problem is the weight. I originally bought this cage as a travel cage, but am using is as a sleeping cage due to the weight.

    Great Small/Travel Cage

    By on

    Although the instructions for this Cage were tricky & you do need a rubber mallet to put the fixtures in place & the locks(latches were troublesome to follow with the manual(I played around with the latch parts supplied on my own & set it to where I felt they were secure)... Please do not let this stop you from purchasing this great little cage meant for up to a medium sized Parrot/Parakeet. It is truly well built & secure once in place & has nice stainless food bowls & a pull out tray bottom. The bars of the cage are close & thick enough to feel safe taking your Bird out for travel or as just a secondary smaller cage. It has a cute handle that can be used as a perch.

    Love this cage!!

    By on

    So I researched all the wire travel cages out ther b/c I wanted a smaller cage to use as an extra cage around the house that was portable. I like to have my bird with me everywhere that is possible and my house is not an “open floor plan”. I set the cage up with a couple toys and an extra perch inside the cage and also attached some larger branches to the top and sides of the cage so it can be used as a bird stand also. l have other animals so I like to know that not only can this cage serve as a stand and play space but I can safely confine my bird if the big dog is in the area. This cage was super easy to put together - just get yourself a rubber mallet and it sets up in a snap.

    Surdy Cage great price, but it's missing parts, Chewy made it right.

    By on

    This cage is a great price for ths size and it's very sturdy. It came to me, with a perch that doesn't work - very cheap and falls off, but I had one that I used instead. It also did not include a spring that is supposed to be for the front tray guard. I wrote Chewy and they had me donate the old one and shipped out a new cage right away. Thank you Chewy... however, the new one, did not include the top perch/handle that is supposed to be included, the same cheap perch that doesn't work was in there but that's fine and the spring was still not inluded. I would buy this again because of the price and how sturdy it is, but just know that you may have to do some adjusting.

    This cage is the perfect size for a travel cage. I love the fact that it has the nice big door in the front and that you can take the food dishes out without opening the main door. As far as portability for me it is way to heavy. It is very difficult to carry back and forth from the car. I wish that it could of been much lighter. As far as putting it together, it was a nightmare. I had 2 grown men that swore the whole time trying to get it together. There were pieces that just didn't fit. On a few pieces they had to get out their tools and bend and readjust to get them to fit. Also was missing a spring, which my husband found an old spring off of something and cut it down to work.
