Compared with normal bird cages, corner cages tend to be larger and thus provide more room for your birds. However, because they are a unique product they also tend to be more expensive.
Which factors make a good corner bird cage?
Pretty much all corner bird cages are medium to large sized and so will fit any medium to larger sized birds. However, if you’re planning on housing smaller sized birds then you might want to check the bar spacing of the cage. Smaller birds such as budgies or finches might be able to fit through the gaps of larger cages. You want at a maximum the bar spacing to be 1/2″ and no more if you’re housing smaller birds.
If you’re housing 2 or more large birds such as cockatoos then consider the large corner bird cages such as the A and E Corner Cage. The more space you can provide your birds with the better.
Corner cages tend to be higher priced than normal cages because of their unique design and because they offer more space. So you will need a bigger budget and if the cage isn’t fully furnished then you’ll need to budget in for any extra accessories that you purchase. As a general price guide, smaller and lower end corner cages cost around $250 to $350 whereas larger higher end ones typically range from $500-$750.
How well furnished the cage
Whilst size is a major determining factor, internal & external features are also important. For example, the 3156W from Prevue is fully furnished and even comes with a play top which is a great additional feature for your birds. Other internal factors you want to look at are the number of perches used, how many watering and feeding trays there are plus if there are any internal climbing ladders.
How easy it is to maintain and use
Removable trays will make cleaning the waste from your bird cage a lot easier. Also, small accessible doors on the side of the cage (next to the feeding and watering trays) will make taking care of your birds more convenient. All corner cages typically come with wheels so they can be moved around your home and every door on these types of cages will comes with a lock. This should be padlocked with a key if you have children and don’t want them interfering with your birds.
The materials used
There are a number of materials that are bird safe and then there a number which aren’t, so check what your cage is made out of. Unsafe metals include brass, copper, lead, tin and zinc. Safe bird metals include aluminium, iron and stainless steel.
Galvanized steel is a bit more complicated. If it’s galvanized steel before welding then it is less safe. Galvanized steel after welding however is safe.
What’s more, look at the paint that is used. Remember that powder coated paint provides the safest protection from birds as it’s hard for them to consume any paint flecks when it is applied this way.

Cage corner accessories
Corner bird cage shelves and platforms
Attachable bird corner shelves can provide a great additional platform for your pets to rest upon. Both metallic and wooden versions of these platforms are available. If you have a larger sized bird with a strong beak then stick to the metal version of these platforms to prevent them from being chewed.
Simple corner perches are also available that will attach with screws to 2 sides of your cage. These perches are padded and can be easily installed and moved around the cage.
Corner cups, feeding trays and watering stations are available which are right angle shaped so they can fit into the corner of the cage.
Corners bird fleece blankets
These are soft bits of fabric that you can attach to the corners of your cage and allow your birds to rest on a smooth, comfortable piece of material. Helps to protect them from drafts and keeps them warm.
Used corner bird cages
Some people inquire about buying secondhand or used bird cages and we always recommend against it. If you really want to buy a used cage then you can from places such as Ebay, Gumtree or Craiglist but it’s a risky choice. When buying secondhand, you simply don’t know what paints and toxic chemicals might have been used on the cage. Plus if you don’t know the model of the cage then it will be difficult to assess which materials the cage is made of and these could potentially be toxic. Also, you won’t have a warranty or guarantee so if anything breaks, you’re on your own.
