I will most likely get a company made cage. So I guess I have nothing to worry about in that aspect!

I think it's great you are looking ahead and buying the cage beforehand. This way the cost is spread out and does not hurt the wallet all at once.
I went to the bird fair in Bridgeton, MO last month. Sadly, I didn't have any cash with me.
Thank you! Exactly my thoughts.

Right, you can never take someone's word for it in situations like these.

Thank you for the suggestion, I'll look into that.

Hmm. Maybe I will have to resort to two or two and a half feet in depth.

Cage makers know you have to get it in and out of a dwelling
I really want a cage that is three feet deep. I've measured the doors, and there's no way it could fit. :/
I wouldn't want to go down to two feet deep. I want a very big cage. The bigger the cage, the more toys I can put in it!
