    I'm actually buying all new already painted cages. As far as painting an old cage the
    only safe paint to use for our feathered kids is powder coating. I actually just had one
    of my old cages powder coated. It cost me $300 but it has 5 coats on it and the cage is
    HUGE. I actually got a pretty good deal.
