What's The Best Budgie Cage Size?

When choosing the best-sized cage for your Budgie, you need to consider adequate space for them to fly, hop, eat, drink, play, and go to the restroom. This may add up to a lot more space than you originally considered!

If you have a single Budgerigar, any small-sized enclosure with 1/2" bar spacing and internal space with minimum dimensions of 18" (Wide) x 18" (Deep) x 24" (Height) will work just fine.

However, if you have two or more Budgies, your goal should be to find the largest enclosure you can find with bar spacing no wider than 1/2"!

As you probably know, Budgies love being active and they are very social birds, so an open enclosure with numerous perches and "play spots" is perfect. Flight cages, which are wider than they are deep, are ideal for your little parrot to stretch their wings.

To Wrap It Up

Consider a big enough enclosure setup that has tight bar spacing and gives your bird(s) a ton of space to move around to flaunt their wingspan in at the same time.

There also needs to be adequate room for toys, like mirrors and swings, and stationary perches. If you love your Budgie, you’ll love making him or her happy.

Budgerigars are very physical birds, so they will need space in which to fly around and express themselves. What does that mean? Well, it may mean more than just one toy or one perch to keep them from getting bored which is the main reason why they bob their heads.

Fun facts: The term Budgie is short for ‘Budgerigar’, which is a type of small Australian parakeet. Though most places tend to refer to Budgies and Parakeets (a general term for any Parrot with a slender body & long tail) interchangeably, this is not correct - all Budgies are Parakeets but not all Parakeets are Budgerigars. Now you know :)
