Cockatiels are great companion birds that have a lot to offer during their average 16-25 life-span. Their behavior depends on a lot on how you raise them and the general atmosphere in your house: if you work with cockatiels a lot they will probably be entertaining to watch and listen to as they try to mutter out some words. Seeing them locked in the cage could be saddening at first but with the right product, this doesn’t have to be the case.
Here’s 6 Best Cockatiel Bird Cages that will make your little companion feel as free as possible.

Please your birds with a cage that is of decorative design, easy to move and easy to clean. This spacious home for birds provides easy access to the inside with a large swing door and 2 lift-up doors.
We mentioned that the cage comes with the stand that facilitates its relocation, but we also have to mention that the stand has a storage shelf. The cage itself isn’t fixed to the stand which means that it can be freestanding.
The product is highly safe. First of all, it is topped with epoxy finish powder that is bird-friendly. Secondly, the bars are close together. This is great for smaller birds such as cockatiels that tend to try to go through the bars but end up stuck in there which can be life-threatening.
The cage has plastic feeding containers and wood perches. Assembling doesn’t take a rocket scientist to do it. It will barely take you 20 minutes to build your cockatiels’ new favorite place to hang out in.

Large Wrought Iron Flying Cage by MCage.
For all of you who are looking for a stable cage for multiple birds, this is the right thing. With this cage, your birds will have large space to fly around and will allow them to do a lot of physically engaging activities. Mcage guarantees safety of this product as they made sure to build it off very sturdy and toxin-free materials.
The thick bars will prevent your birds from being stuck in between or escaping through them. Unfortunately, the bars are a bit on the thin side which makes it prone to damage if you have birds with strong beaks. Also, beware of the paint used. It is safe but apparently falls off easily. If this ends up in your cockatiel’s beak, it can be lethal. Improved safety lock will also thwart any possible scheme for escaping the cage. Having in mind that it is made of wrought iron, you can be assured that it won’t fall easily if it is hit accidentally.
When your cockatiels get tired of being ‘’on their wings’’ they can land on some of the perches in the cage and have their moment of peace. Not only does this cage have perches but it also has ladders inside which will additionally promote physical development of your birds. Four feeding cups in the cage are there to take care of the birds’ hunger while the 2 platforms will give them some more space to chill out.
The cage comes with a stand which conveniently has a storage shelf. The casters are underneath which means you’ll be able to push it to another place without breaking much sweat. Finally, the grate and the tray are removable. You’ll easily get rid of the persistent trash birds make.
- Removable grate and tray provide practical cleaning.
- Your birds will have a large space in which they can spread their wings and play fly around.
- Has a storage shelf.
- The stand with casters makes the cage easily moved to another location.
- The paint can be easily scratched.
- It is not made for big birds because the bars are weak.

The bars are pretty close together and there are even both vertical and horizontal bars at the sides of the cage which only equals extra protection of birds getting stuck or breaking free.
This is another cage that comes with no instructions. This is not a serious drawback but it can be irksome for customers who are fresh at this. Not to mention that inadequate assembling could put the bird in danger by risking the cage to fall apart.

- Easy to clean.
- Interesting design.

Prevue Hendryx Triple Roof Bird Cage
Although this is not really a flying cage your birds will still love it. It seems small but in fact, there is enough space for the birds to stretch out. However, we don’t really recommend this as a permanent home for your little friends.
As we said, it is spacious enough for the cockatiels to spread their wings a bit and has all the equipment required: plastic food containers and perches. You’ll easily wipe away all the junk because the tray and the grate allow you to pull them out. What sets the cage apart is the design. It has ‘’triple rooftop’’ which makes it look like a mini castle right in your home.
Unfortunately, the door is of the ‘’guillotine” style. This is not very safe for birds. Although the rooftop looks stylish it doesn’t allow much space for hanging bird toys.
- Easy to clean
- Has everything that your cockatiels need despite being smaller: perches, food containers.
- It is stylish
- Not spacious enough.
- Has the guillotine style door which is not very safe for birds.
When you’re planning to buy a cage you have to have a lot of things on your mind including the size of your bird, the character, their eating habits etc. We can’t emphasize enough how important it is to choose the cage carefully. A nice cage with adequate equipment is one of the intrinsic parts of your birds; joyful and lengthy life.
Cockatiels are small birds which give you the freedom to even choose a smaller cage such as the last one mentioned here. However, owners usually have more than one of this species which automatically calls for a bigger space. The flying cages are just the right thing to purchase in such cases. Confirm that the cage is made of pet-friendly materials. This is especially essential when you’re taking care of birds whose stomachs are super gentle and sensitive.
Take a good look at how the bars are located: there should be narrow space between them so that your cockatiel won’t even think of getting through it. Inspect the doors as well. The swing-out style doors are the best because they’re less likely to hurt your friend. Most of the cages here have stood with casters beneath them. This is also a very desirable trait as it will allow you to replace the cage from time to time. If the stand has a storage shelf too then even better!
Last but not least, follow the instructions for assembling loyally. Any wrong move or loose screw can make the whole construction fall apart which will sure not be to the liking of neither you nor the bird. If there are not instructions, look at the picture of the product or simply ask for the help of someone more experienced.
