    Hi Kelsey.

    No question is dumb, and kudos to you for doind these things
    before the bird comes home...)

    The measurements you give are perfect for a Red Belly, and
    the 3/4 inch spacing is perfect! I have my Red Belly in a
    King's #207.
    Many times during the day and evening she is playing on her
    playstand in the family room. It is one of the ones that has
    natural branches, therefore it has varying thickness for foot
    exercise.
    If you prefer a PVC one, I'd probably choose the larger
    perches...
    My Red Belly is a total sweetheart. She is 14 months old and
    is the best bird ever...)
    Please visit often and keep us posted on your new baby's
    progress and antics!
    Good luck,
    Cheryl
