As a matter of fact, still we want them as a pet so give them more space as you can. They are not judgable on the basis of their size. A healthy bird on large cage can live long and behave naturally with one another.
If they do not provide get enough space to fly around, it effects on their body and mind, also on breed. So, think about their freedom and provide large cage for them with essential equipment’s like bowl, perch, toy, ladder etc, depending on types of your bird.
