It's not on the listing but it looks like 3/4". If that's the case, it would probably be ok.

However, if those dimensions include the seed skirt, it is really not big enough. I see you're picking cages with playtops and seed skirts. Unfortunately most cages with them are made for larger birds. You'll have a hard time finding one that's both large enough and has appropriate bar spacing for a cockatiel.

This is what I believe to be the same cage, but on the American Amazon site. The interior dimensions are 24x22 which is good for a single cockatiel. There are a few answers which say the bar spacing is 3/4".

If that's the same cage and all that info is correct, that cage would be just fine. Just keep in mind it's very cheaply made, and might not last you terribly long.

Hey folks just an update on the cage. I was very nervous about the spacing even though my avian vet said it was fine for him. I thought (as he cannot fly or glide- wings savaged) that he was going to fall and hurt himself and even after two weeks he was still nervous just climbing on it and he would not go inside. He always seemed so happy when I brought him to his smaller cage that I decided to sell it again and look for something when he is flighted. Thanks for all the comments and guidance.

It can take a while for a tiiel to adapt to a new home. Some are more nervous than others when their surroundings change.

I got my cage from here just invade the bars are to wide. I found my boys head stuck in the gap just above his door in his old cage which lead me to getting a new one. The gap was about an inch maybe slightly less. Hopefully your cage will be ok.
