In the house, a domesticated bird finally appeared – a parrot! Often, at the same time as buying a bird, a bird house is also purchased, but what if you purchased a large parrot that still needs a large aviary cage?
With great desire, you can make such a house on your own at home.
What matters to your bird
In order for your parrot to be quite easy and comfortable, you need to think in advance about the availability of free space for its captive flights.
Equally important is the presence of your own game corner for the bird. You can additionally watch a video on how to make a cage for a parrot, in order to understand what should be inside your bird’s dwelling.
Suppose you decide to purchase the most common breed of budgerigars – the budgerigar. This view is very friendly and always ready to please its owners with joyful and lively communication.
However, this requires that the bird feel comfortable. The optimal cage size for the budgerigar is considered to be 75x100x120 (h).
It is possible to purchase or make a cage of a larger size, which will allow the bird to fly freely inside the cage. How to make a cage for budgies will tell you the video instruction or the scheme for building houses for domestic birds.
We recommend purchasing cages that are equipped with pallets. This will allow cleaning as quickly and efficiently as possible inside the cage and will not spread an unpleasant odor around.

Step-by-step cell creation
To understand how to make a cage for parrots, we recommend that you familiarize yourself with the advice of people who did it on their own at home.
The grid should be aligned and cut special blanks. For cutting, you can use special scissors for working with metal or a grinder.
An important recommendation – be sure to remove all sharp edges that could injure your bird. Leave open rods at the bottom of the workpieces, as well as a few edges. This is necessary in order to properly assemble the cage.
The next step is to drill holes in the bottom where the bottom edge of the grill will be inserted. From below they should be bent.
An important nuance is that all markings should be made on the basis of the lattice, and not under the ruler. This will avoid errors in the distance between cells in the grid.
We continue to collect the cage, not forgetting to bend all open rods near the rods of adjacent panels. Try not to cause internal bends.

Despite the fact that at first glance the design itself will look a little fragile, in the end it will delight you with its strength.
This instruction is also suitable for understanding how to make a cage for a Corell parrot. It is very important to take measurements correctly and determine in advance what size cell you need.
In order that the opposite sides do not "go" – fasten them with the help of poles. The sticks for the perch should be selected so that your bird can reach her paws. That is, focus on the size of the foot.
Final touches – attach the swing for the bird to the ceiling panel. From plywood, you can make a small trough where the litter will be laid.
