What Space Will You Need?Before you start your shopping for a cage, know how much space you have available. Remember that this is a stand up cage and will need clear floor space to accommodate it. Make sure you have easy access to the cage in order to clean it and change food and water on a regular basis.Tip 2: How Big is Big Enough?Cockatiels are not the smallest of domesticated birds. They are, in fact, larger than a parakeet. Any bird cages should be big enough to accommodate their occasional need to spread their wings. So you’ll need a MEDIUM SIZE, STAND UP CAGE with bars no farther than 1/2 inch to 5/8 inches apart.Tip 3: Look before you Leap.Before purchasing, go to your local pet store and see if they have any cockatiel bird cages in stock. Check the dimensions, and judge how much space you’re going to need to fit one into your home.
