I need a new cage for my gliders, I found one at Amazon call "MegaBrand 32x18x69 in 3-Story Cockatiel Parrot Bird Cage Stand Black Vein", it looks similar to my "Large Sturdy Sugar Glider Cage HQ" but with a better price. Just wondered anyone used that cage? I saw few reviews on that Amazon product page that were made by glider owners, but still wanted to see is there anyone here using or used it, any problems with that cage?

Thanks a lot!

It's good for the price, but they aren't powdered coated, so they rust a lot faster than powder coated cages.

The description said it is powdered coated.

Powder-coated wire and non-toxic epoxy finished safe for bird.
Sturdy metal wire bar that big parrots can not bend.
Rectangular tubes constructed main frame for more steady.
Strong wire locks on two front doors for convenient access.
Ten sliding feeder doors for placing feeding bowls freely.

How secure are the 10 doors on that cage? Will you have to secure them so your gliders don't get out? Just another though to keep in mind with this cage.

Also, can you get a wheel in without taking the cage apart? How big are the door openings? I haven't looked, just throwing it out there.

That cage will be fine, but you should zip tie the small doors shut along with the nest box doors that are at the top on each side.

I would also zip tie the shelves so the gliders can't knock them off and remove the ladders, gliders don't need them.

That is why I'm here asking is anyone using this cage and what's their comments. I have 3 HQ Large Sturdy cages purchased at Suncoast Sugar glider. I have no problem to put a large wheel into my HQ cage.

All small doors need to be zip tied to avoid glider open and escape, also need to check the zip ties very often.

Base on the sizes and photos, it really looks like the HQ cage, and with a good price.

My 3 HQ disappointed me, rust appeared in one of the cage half year ago, which used only 2.5 years without any hardware scratches, and I clean the cage very well every month. I ended up need to remove one of the small door and replaced it with hardware net. Another cage just 1 year old, it arrive with a little blended wire on the top of the cage, I had to use a large zip tie to fix the problem.

The 3rd HQ came along with the 2 gliders that I adopted, the cage was less than 2 years old when I got it and it already had rust on the side of the cage.

If paying $222 + shipping to buy a HQ, and the quality is no different than a $157 MegaBrand cage, I really should buy the MegaBrand instead of paying so much extra to get the HQ. Right?

I'm not in hurry to get that MegaBrand anyway.

Thanks!

One note on the pictures, make sure that any link you put in ends in a valid picture format, like .jpg for example. If not, the pictures will not show, only a link.
