Great, light travel cage, but needs a bottom grate over the pan.
I'd like a travel cage for my green cheek cone. It was my first choice, but I was one of those who wanted it right away, so I ended up ordering the Midwest Bird Adventure Porto Hotel because it was cheaper and shipped faster. The cage was strong, but it was a little too big and too heavy to use very often, so I finally bought this. First of all, it is very light and easy to carry. Aluminum side plate and roof fit and finish are very good. I ordered the "bronze" color and was satisfied with it. I didn't notice the instructions outside the shipping box until I had put it together, so it wasn't too bad, even though I was dragged down by the lack of assembly instructions packaged with the content. The silver aluminum bar, in contrast to the matte frame, is very attractive and has a significant improvement over other materials. The magnetic latch is very beautiful. However, sliding doors are welcome. If you try to pull the latch mechanism, it is usually stuck back in the locked position. It's not for pulling. So, you have to hook the iron bar with your finger and pull it out of the magnetic latch. It's not too bad, but it's not optimal. As pointed out elsewhere, the bottom of the cage is a weak link. It is just an aluminum pan leaning against the ledge of the side panel. Nothing can stop it from being pushed up, but this can be done with CA.
