I've been looking around for some new bird cages, and I've seen that the ones in the pet stores near me are quite expensive for the size so I started doing some searching and I've found that ferret/other small animal cages work quite nicely and they are at a far better price than the bird cages I've seen. So just throwing this information out there for anyone who is also looking for bird cages!

The one I'm looking at now says it's "non toxic epoxy painting"

ahhhhhhhhhh good to know that...never thought about that with those types of cages....an a lot of folks like them as they are low and long...i dont think they would be as easy to clean tho...i know the ones i had for when i was raising cockies and brought them in for the winter were a BIG pain in the neck to scrub...and if you were not careful easily scratched the finish in the tub....

there are i guess pro's and con's to every cage and no cage i guess is perfect in all regards...in the end praticality and asthetic preference will always be a tug of war sort of thing when picking out that perfect cage that suits both bird and owner to a T smile

I know the cleaning would be a little bit of a hassle seeing as it's bigger and all, but they had pull out bottoms and a few doors. But there are pros and cons for every cage like you said

There are some good online sites also for larger cages - I know Tess and Conner recently got one and I think it was BirdCagesFor Less but am not sure.

cages are all about safety and space and ease of cleaning etc and what the individual likes asthetically...a lot of us have and also like the

hagen vision cages and use the MO 2 model for keets ...just search ebay for them under....hagen vision MO2...they are also very reasonable...and here is a link to one with free shipping and reasonably price it also describes thoroughly specifics about the cage..whats also really nice about this cage is it has all horizontal bars...

www.ebay.com/itm/VISION-II-MODEL-MO2-MED...=item1c0602ab6f

whatever you decide remember that this will be the single most important purchase for you and your birds...a lot of us did not have such good info as what you have here and ended up buying multiple cages before getting it right...

good luck and happy shopping smile
