Apart from having a struggle to put the cage together, when it was finished we were very impressed. Just love the seed and water unit and it really does stop all the husks from dropping onto the cage floor - just wish there was something to do the same for millet :-)
Our budgies love it too.
The cage was easy to assemble and the customer service was wonderful. It's a beautiful design and looks stunning in our home.
What a feast for the eyes! Not your ordinary run of the mill bird's cage, an architectural delight. On saying that it is extremely fit for purpose as it caters for the smaller birds brilliantly.
I assembled the cage with my 6 and 9 year old boys, which they enjoyed - we watched the "how to assemble video" on the web and followed the plans within the assembly manual. They assembled about two thirds of the cage, with me checking instructions and doing a little. I also purchased the tall stand and most of the optional accessories, which were also fitted. My 6 year old built the stand, which is nice and solid.
I was a little worried of how well the two budgies would take to the new cage. To my surprise they were suddenly much more active and social. They do fly short distances within the cage and seem very content.
I had seen all the debate around people not liking round cages, but this is a big cage and the birds have definitely taken to it. They like flying around the room and returning to the sides of the cage, eventually returning within.
The feeder and drinks are well thought out, remaining clean. The doors are securely closed and can't be tampered by the birds intent on playing. The dirt stays within the cage, which is a pleasant change from the traditional cages with their "debris splatter zone". Despite the round design, the bars are a standard width and can easily accommodate the usual 3rd party perches, toys, food treats, etc.
I like the night cover for the cage, which helps prevent late night activities from impacting the birds too much.
The bath and mirror seems to be their current favourite spot to hang out. Not so much playing with the mirror, but just resting around and within the dry bath.
Overall the birds are happy, they are definitely more active and are enjoying the environment. The fact that the perches swing adds a little more dynamic to the birds, who seem to like this.
There is ample room within the cage for the birds to hang out together or take time to themselves.
The cage also looks very good and is easy to clean.
My mom had birds for years and the one thing I’ve always hated about caged pets is the unattractive and inconvenient cages. This cage is absolutely beautiful. It has become a piece in my home just as art on the wall or furniture that I love. I bought my 2 finches and they seemed to be filled with delight when they moved into their Omlet cage! I could tell right away that they have more room to flap around. The love the feeder too actually. My only criticism which is very small, is that they seem frustrated seeing the food from the clear container but not able to access it. They figured it out but I do think they would have adjusted to the feeder faster if the top of the food/water vessels weren’t see through! That said, they seems to love the feeder now, and fight over the favourite “spot” instead of taking one place each haha
Love love love it!
No other bird cage I've had comes close to the brilliant engineering of this remarkable mansion for my parakeet. He's got plenty of room to jet around inside, and perhaps even better yet, he loves scaling it from the outside looking in - to the top to enjoy the view from above. Plus, the cage itself is attractive. Not something to hide away in a corner! As an added plus, the feeder takes away all of the headache and the mess of castaway seed hulls. Well done, Omlet - you've made me and my perky parakeet happy-happy-happy!
We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this cage! And honestly, so does our little canary. The cage is so beautiful and well designed. Even the packaging was impressive. The quality is great! We are complete 100% thrilled with our purchase.
Cage arrived yesterday. I assembled it and couldn’t wait to see how Nelson and Charlie would settle in. They both love it. Nelson worked out quickly how to get seed and water from the feeder. Love the fact that I don’t get seed husks all over floor. I’ve left the door open so they can fly around if they want but they have more room in their cage now so seem contented to stay in.
My daughter, a vet is very keen on spacious pet housing so she bought me this beautiful stylish cage for my elderly budgie. My budgie loved it so much she took on a new lease of life so we purchased another budgie and now they live very happily, with space to fly and play. The cage is a design statement in my living room and fits in beautifully on its bamboo stand! My daughter assembled it and the instructions we very helpful. The cage is easy to clean and the unique feeder stops bird seed getting everywhere! Thank you Omlet we now have a chicken house and a bird cage! Just bought a omlet bird bath they love that too!
