Size is one of the most important things to consider. The Canaries are small birds. This means they can easily fit between the bars of the cage if they are spaced too far in between. Therefore, make sure you choose a cage with half an inch of spacing at most.
You will also need to think about the material that the canary cages are made from. Some of the most common choices include wood, plastic and metal. It's best to get a metal cage. Wood and acrylic plastic cages can be difficult to clean, and you always want your birdcage to stay as tidy as possible.
Metal cages are also far more durable. Stainless steel and powder coated metal are definitely two good options. However, avoid designs that have thin wire, as they will be less durable. If you invest in a quality cage, then you likely won't have to buy another one anytime in the near future.
Another important consideration when choosing canary bird cages is its shape. When most people visualize cages, they think of a tall domed shape. However, canaries like to fly around horizontally instead of vertically. With this in mind, try to get a design that's pretty wide.
