Has anyone purchased a cage from them in recent years? A friend of mine is thinking about getting one of their large split cages. About 8 years ago we got one at the zoo which fell apart. Have they improved?

Hi Cassie,

I have a friend that bought one for his two Macaws & he said the same exact thing it fell apart on him. For the cost of it you would think that you are getting top notch, doesn't seem to be the case.

They donated a large cage to the rescue where I volunteer. It held up for a couple of years, but I think they're more for the home than a commercial (zoo/rescue/etc.)

What kind of bird is she thinking of housing in it?

When we split it in three and used it for macaws, it didn't seem to work well, but it made a fabulous large budgie flight. We've also used different sized ones for iguanas and it held up well for them.

Mine was barely usable within about six months of purhase (which was some time ago). It is very large (3 x 6) and the weight was too much for the legs. The legs splayed out so the wouldn't stay on it and rested on the floor. It cost so much and was so bad. I ended up resting the thing on an old bed frame to give is some needed support. Eventually replaced with a slightly smaller cage but both my M2 and I are so much happier. New cage is much easier to clean with two eparate slide out trays. I would strongly discourage someone from buying a Cages by Design.

Thank you everyone. He was planning on putting a B&G macaw in one side and two conures in the other. He has decided against purchasing the cage.
