Breeding

How big must the breeding cage be. I don't want to breed in a community aviary.


Hi Gawie,
For just one pair, I use cages that are 29" wide x 18" deep x 18" high. They just sit on my table top. Their cages do not need to be very tall or deep. The only reason for a large cage is that Gouldians need horizontal flight space so they can exercise without hurting themselves. I think you could use something smaller as long as their flight space was kept as wide as possible.

Good luck, Jeanie
