Play Top Cages vs. Dome Top Cages

First, please understand the bird doesn’t know the difference in the tops parrot cages. Birds like to be up high and will go to the top of the cage regardless.

Playtops are really more of a convenience for you than the bird. Dometop , Victorian (or Napoleon) top cages fall under the category of dome top bird cages but may offer doors that open on the top of the cage providing birds with an exit other than the main front door.
