Question: Refinishing a Bird Cage

By Chris Richman 10 106

Photo of a bird cage in need of refinishing.I have a bird cage that my feathered friend has removed most of the painted from. Is there a safe and inexpensive DIY way to refinish the cage? New cages for that size bird are over $200 new and the cage itself is still in good condition just the finish is damaged. I don't care so much about looks but the exposed metal gets rusted and I'm sure that using her beak on the metal can't be healthy for my bird.

I think the idea of asking a vet is an excellent one. They certainly should know more than we do!

Question: Looking for Paint for a Bird Cage

Hi, I am building a large bird cage for my pet birds and need help. I am not using chicken wire but stronger fencing and I am wondering if any one would know if stores sell the plastic coating that normal bird cages have? Do they sell a spray paint that I can spray on fencing? I don't have a clue as to what I'm doing but I'm going for it anyway.

Thanks, Lu-Lu

The only safe paint would be powder coating applied by a professional.
