How to Choose

The bird's size, its body-to-tail proportion, the type of activities, your statue and comfort are all important consideration in choosing the right size bird carrier.

Birds are very sensitive and treasure their tail feather greatly. Generally, the bird's tail should be above the floor and away from the back wall and its head is not too close to the mesh. Therefore, the bird's measurements should be shorter than the available interior space.

Reference Measurements (with the bird perched naturally):
Tail Length - From the perch to tip of the tail: Ensure available perch position (see E) is higher than A.
Full Length - From the crest to tip of the tail: Ensure the carrier height is at lest 1.5" higher than B. The interior space is slightly less than the seam to seam dimension specified and head room is reduced by the sloped down shape in the top front.
Distance between the perch and tip of the tail
Distance between the perch and the front of the beak: The perch is generally set at the middle of the width so a 12" wide carrier would have the perch set at 6" mark. Although birds do conform to the available space by standing straight, you would not want the carrier to be too restrictive.
Various available perch hole positions
Back Length - Shoulder to Hips: For carrier larger than 22" (56 cm), it would be more comfortable to have the carrier lifted above the hip.
