We decided it was time to take a look at one of our largest and most feature-packed aviaries, the King’s Cages 8004030 Play Pen. Its highlights include six (6) total doors, a top area play zone with bird-pleasing perches and step ladders, and a vast, roomy interior that encourages movement.
As an aviary suited for medium to large sized pet birds, the King’s Cages 8004030 Play Pen measures in at (40) inches wide by (30) inches deep. It offers about (45) inches of inside height for your pet to move around. If you measure the distance from the ground to the highest perch, the total height is (76.75) inches. Meanwhile, the lower perch sits at a height of (71.75) inches from the ground. The space between the two perches is (9) inches.
You will certainly appreciate the 8004030 Cage’s two (2) slide-out trays and single slide-out grate. Both the upper and lower trays and the grate can be removed for easy access and cleaning. The height from the floor to the lower tray is about (8.5) inches. And then the space between the tray and the grate is (8.75) inches. The trays and the grate themselves each have measurements of (38.25) inches long by about (29.5) inches wide. Also note that the removable seed catcher, or “seed skirt”, adds (5) inches to each side when it is used. This add-on is great for preventing messes, so it is highly recommended. The full cage weighs (172) pounds.
There are six (6) doors total on the King’s Cages 8004030. The largest is the front access door, which is the one you will most likely be using for placing and removing your pet. The dimensions for this door are (37) inches long by (18.5) inches wide. This door uses the King's Cages Lock 3 Small Spring Lock, which you can buy from Bonka Bird Toys if you need a replacement. The lock is installed on the outside of the door, making it impossible for your bird to reach it while they are inside. Your bird will not be able to tamper with the lock or unlock it on their own.
The other doors on the King’s Cages 8004030 include four (4) small feeder doors and one (1) breeder box door with a latch for supporting a breeder box. What’s great about every door on the 8004030 Play Pen is that they all open outward. This prevents your pet from potentially getting out when you go to open one. And just like the main front access door, these small doors also use bird-proof locks that are installed on the outside. The difference though is that these smaller doors use the King’s Cages 1334 Lock 6 Round Feeder Door Lock.
All four (4) of the small feeder doors have a swing-out 30 oz stainless steel food bowl to make feeding your pet a breeze. These stainless steel feeder bowls will last the lifetime of the cage with proper care. And like any high-end birdcage from King’s Cages, the 8004030 Play Pen is built using the company’s special Five Tank Process for Powder Coating. The Powder Coated finish makes the cage extremely durable and long-lasting. That is why this cage is such a nice investment for any birdkeeper. With proper care, you can expect to use this cage forever.
We also must discuss the play area at the top of the 8004030 Play Pen Cage. It features two (2) perches and two (2) playpen ladders that can be interchanged from the top of bottom. Your taloned trustee will love to grip and play on these perches and ladders. Remember that there is also a single wooden perch inside the cage, so in total, your pet will have three (3) perches to play on. There are also two (2) extra stainless steel feeder bowls for the play area, which both measure 20 oz. Counting the inside bowls as well, you get six (6) feeder bowls in total.
There are several color options for the King’s Cages 8004030 Play Pen, including Coppertone, Grey & Silver, Sandstone, White, and Black & Silver. You can easily move the cage thanks to the four (4) screw-in flanged caster rollers at the bottom. The casters are of industrial strength, and you should never have to replace them if the cage is maintained properly. An excellent accessory for this cage is the Cozzzy Covers Cage Cover Model 4030 PT. This non-toxic poly-cotton fabric cover is loose fitting, and it is perfect for providing a secure environment that promotes sleep and good health.
With its large size, the 8004030 makes a great home for Umbrella Cockatoos, Green Wing Macaws, Hyacinth Macaws, Scarlet Macaws, and almost any other large pet bird. You can also use it as a home for multiple smaller birds, assuming they all get along with each other. Just be sure that any bird housed in this cage isn’t small enough to stick its neck through the bars and possibly become stuck. You should consider the one-inch (1”) bar spacing and 5mm bar size when determining if this cage is suitable for any given bird.
Of course, you will also want to get some toys to decorate the King’s Cages 8004030 Play Pen.
