Proper Housing for Conures
Ensure that your Conure has a cage that is large enough to accommodate his active nature. While Conures are not large birds, they require a lot space to move around and play.
The cage should be a minimum of 18" H x 18" L x 18" W for the smaller species; and up to a minimum of 36" x 36" x 36" for the larger species.
The cage should come with a secure door entrance. Conures are smart little critters and will easily figure out how to enter and exit a cage that does not securely close.
Your Conure's new cage should contain at least two perches with one situated as close to the top as possible as this is where your Conure will sleep, and the other perch on a lower level with his food and water.
You want a cage that gives you easy access to all parts so that you can keep your bird's environment clean and healthy.
The bars on the cage need to be no more than one half inch to five eighths of an inch wide. This will insure that your bird doesn't get stuck or caught in between the bars and injure himself.
My green cheek is in a 17X17X24, and my mitred is in a 24x22x34. Both of them do fine in their cages as long as I have loads of toys for them and they have plenty of out of cage time each day.
Pretty soon Curi will live out on a playstand in the bird room with no cage and then I will probably buy a bigger cage for Juni in the future just to spoil him.
