Rio is starting to grow out of his crate, I want to make sure we get one that will be big enough for him full grown... what sizes work for your spoos?? I think both his mom and dad were under 25" (probably between 23-25?)

I have an X-Large Black Wire Cage. It is more than big enough for Kala, but she loves to lay down flat on her side so I wanted to give her plenty of room. The Large would have also been too short I think.

I don't have a Standard yet, but have bought the 42" Midwest crate in preparation. It comes with an adjustable divider so eliminates the need for multiple crates along the way.

Ok, we're looking at the xl's... why does it seem like the larger ones don't have a top handle?? I don't want to carry it with the handle while Rio is in it, but what about when it's empty, it would be much easier I would think.

Mine fold suitcase style and they do have a handle. They fold each end in then scissor closed, I use the lifestages and got them off ebay ..

I use wire as well and have a large one with a handle but no way can I reach around and carry it, I drag it! Mine does collapse as well and great for cars - but for flying I would think you have to use plastic.
