Dome top cages are nice because they allow toys and swings to hang from the top of the cage without taking up all of your companion bird's living space. They also allow a "front porch" opening above the main door. This is a secondary door that opens to a flat, barred platform that your feathered family member can perch on to watch the comings and goings of their flock. Well-behaved companion birds can have access to the porch and come and go as they please. This door is 18.5"W x 11"H (46.9cm x 27.9cm) in size.

One thing to be mindful of is the bar spacing for this cage. At 1" (2.54cm) this cage is not suitable for smaller birds such as the Finch, Canary, Lovebird, Parakeet, and some others. These species could likely get their heads through the bars, and may get caught. This could cause injury, or worse.

The interior height of this cage is 60" (152.4cm) but the matching stand makes the entire height 73" (185.4cm). In addition, the Kings Cages 9004030 comes with a seed guard that circumnavigates the bottom edge of the cage. This helps to keep seeds, hulls, shredded materials and any other mess from falling to the floor. The seed guard catches small items and redirects them to the slide-out tray in the bottom of the cage. The seed guard adds 3" to 4" (7.6cm to 10.1cm) in width to each side of the cage. Be sure to account for this additional space when determining where to place your new aviary. The four (4) heavy-duty screw-in casters make it a simple matter to move the cage for cleaning, or a change of scenery.
