What is the best size cage for a conure?
A conure cage should be at least 18″ wide, 24″ deep and 36″ high. They need more space than other birds because of their long tail that they use to balance themselves in the air while flying from perch to perch.
What is the best material for a conure's home?
The ideal conure cages are made out of acrylic or metal bars with an escape-proof wire bottom grate on it that will keep your pet bird from getting injured by sharp edges of any kind. The most popular type you can find is called “bar spacing” which means there are two sets of horizontal wires spaced apart about ¼”.

What does my Conure need in his cage?
A conure needs a cage that is tall enough for him to easily move from perch-to-perch. A conure also needs plenty of branches and other items on which he can chew, explore, or play with. Your conure will need:
- High-quality food pellets (don’t feed seed)
- Fresh water in his dish every day
- Weekly baths (only use bird-safe shampoo!)
- Enough room for your conure to stretch and flap its wings freely!
There should be at least four feet of space between the top of the cage’s walls and any objects inside it; some conures like more than five feet between them because they enjoy soaring through the air as much as possible.
How much out of cage time do conures need?
This depends on the conure’s level of activity, but most conures need a minimum of one hour– and some need two hours or more!
Your conure will also enjoy time outside his cage to play with you. Conures love watching TV with their owners (or bird-watching out your window!), getting attention from friends over for dinner, playing in the bathtub, or basically anything that involves new experiences. Teaching them tricks is also highly recommended because it challenges their minds while strengthening your bond together!”
The conures are very social birds so they do not like to be alone for long periods. They often enjoy spending time away from their cages as well if only briefly; this includes going outdoors into a designated area.
How to clean bird cage?
Cleaning your bird’s cage can at first seem like a tedious chore. With so many bars, cracks, and crevices to scrub, it can be hard for new bird owners to figure out where they should begin. Cleaning the cages every day is recommended in order to keep them clean but this will take up time that could otherwise go towards other responsibilities you have outside of caring for birds or taking care of yourself. Instead break down what needs done into individual tasks with specific times allotted each week (weekly) and month (monthly). For instance if something is only needed monthly then doing all the work on one weekend saves an entire weekday from being spent cleaning droppings off wires instead!
- Change the cage liner every day to ensure your bird is comfortable and healthy. Bird droppings can get stuck in old papers, making them emit a very unpleasant stench!
- To avoid bacteria growth, remove your bird’s food and water dishes daily. Wash them with a mild dish detergent before replacing them in the cage to prevent harmful bacterial build-up that can make you or your pet sick!
- To keep your bird’s cage clean, first take a damp rag and gently wipe down the surfaces of the cage. This should include cleaning any bars or perches as well as wiping off any toys that may have been left out in play time. Next, use paper towels to get into all those hard-to-reach places like corners where food can accumulate quickly!
How to keep conure cage warm?
To avoid conures from becoming chilled, make sure to keep your conure’s cage temperature between 60 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit. It is also important the conure has enough room in their home for them to thermo-regulate by moving around freely.
Many people do not realize that their pet birds are just as susceptible to the cold and drafts of winter. This is why it’s important to move your birdcage out of direct contact with doors, windows, or other sources for potential temperature changes throughout the year. To create a healthy environment during these colder months you should place heat lamps in close proximity around perches so they’re within about 4 inches from where your bird will be sitting on his feet.
Consider covering your bird’s cage at night. This is a way to protect it from cold, and you can also keep the temperature inside more comfortable for them in case of extreme weather.
How long should i let my sun conure out of the cage?
Conures are more likely to develop their wings and explore if they’re allowed out of the cage on a regular basis. Just make sure you have time set aside for your conure’s physical activities every day, or else he will get bored in his birdcage and start hurting himself or throwing things around inside as an outlet.
The best conure cages typically come with plenty of features that promote safety, comfort, ventilation and entertainment for the birds living there. Each individual has different needs when it comes to what is considered quality housing but some examples might include: having doors that can be opened from either side; containing multiple levels (if your conure prefers high places); being free-standing without any legs.

How many conures can live in one cage?
If the conures are not all about the same size they should each have their own perch so none of them gets more room or attention than any other conure.
