Post: Safe cage paint and wood
Posted by Elayna on 3/08/08
I have a very large wrought iron cage, that due to storage,
has slight rust on it now. My hope was to use it for an
outdoor cage on nice days, but now, because of the rust,
I'm not sure. What I am wondering is if I sandblast it
down, is there a specific type of safe paint, or even some
safe product that I can use to keep it from rusting? My
birds health is my highest priority, so if there is a risk,
I'll just buy a new one and make this one a garden piece!
Also, due to the rising cost of shipping, making my own
toys, is getting quite expensive. My Macaw, chews through
wood so fast and I never want her to go with out, she
really doesn't like any other type of material. What is a
safe type of wood that I could buy at a lumber or hardware
store, that is also completely safe?
