King's cages

Post by Ian Kerfoo » Sun, 01 Feb 1998 04:00:00



I have an aquaintance with a Moluccan***atoo who is planning to buy him a
new cage. Her current plan is King's Cages macaw model, 46"x29"x6', with
Napoleon top. She will be buying it mail order, sight unseen. Has anyone
dealt with Knig's Cages, and could offer an opinion of whether or not this
cage is worth buying?

We looked at Kings cages when buying a cage for my CAG. We ended up with a
BasII cage. The Kings cage to me looked flimsey. It had metal flaps over where
the food/water dishes went for doors. There were some sharp edges on them as
well. And it was quite a bit less than the Bas II cage but I think the cage we
got will last Oberon a long time. It is put together very good, very sturdy, no
sharp edges, doors that look like the rest of the cage, has pull out trays,
etc. All I can suggest is before you go mail order (which is what we started
out doing) is go to different stores (I went as far as 30 miles away) and see
the various cages. Call breeders and see what they recommend. The breeder I got
mine at sells Kings at his pet store but he doesn't have any that I noticed or
his own bird. We also went to a bird show and saw many Kings Cages (they are
cheap and IMHO cheaply made)...everybody had them. Really shop around because
you don't want to have to replace a cage too often. The only problem that I
have with the Bas II is that it's one full cage....it's connected to the base.
And when we had to take it to a friend when we went on vacation, it was a pain
in the wazoo. But that's minor because the bird isn't going to make anymore
trips like that.

I don't _own_ a King cage, but I've seen gobs of them and they look
anything but flimsey to me. They seem to be solid and I found out, while
being urged by the shop-keeper, that they are quite heavy. The only
thing I haven't liked about the ones I have seen are the large holes
left by the ornamental bars across the top. I feel like that's an
accident waiting to happen.

Sincerely,
Kevin

Some of the older models had scroll work that hada bit larger openings, mine
is a newer model and they have made the scrollwork design smaller. I have a
Senegal in mine and have not had any problems with her trying to stick her
head through the scroll work. I have heard stories of folks having problems
with some of the older models.

I have looked at the King Cages and was not too impressed...the brand new
cages looked great, but Ive seen some with birds in them(mainly white ones)
that have the paint chipped off of them and "bleed"lines on the bars where
the joints are.  I have a Avian Adventures cage and it is off white and
looks wonderful(for now) .  I have a friend who has lots of birds and they
are all in these cages and they all are beautiful.
I also think that Neon cages are extremely well built as well.  With a M2
you have to make sure that the cages are strong or they can break welds...If
money is no object, think about the "Iron Bear" cages....talk about
beautiful...I just have to catch by breath.  They have a web page...I don't
have it off hand but you can look for it on servers under Iron Bear(they are
worth looking at).

I bought 3 different King's cages at different times and all 3 had welds
break loose almost right away.

I ALMOST purchased a King Cage, particularly after speaking with their sales
people, who seem quite informed.  At any rate, thanks for the info posted!  It
seems like the bad experiences have outweighed the good!

PS - small wonder why they were offering large discounts to someone who only
wanted to purchase 1 cage!

The best cages available in terms of styles, quality. and price are from
BIRD
CITY USA in Panama City Beach FL.

I have 5 of their cages now. and used to
carry their line when I had a bird shop=never had any customer
complaints, no problems with broken welds or chipping paint ever.

I've known these folks for years. and can't say enough good stuff about
them!
They have a nice web page

www.birdcity.com

Lots of great toys too!
