Hi all! I have a question about the quality of my bird cage, and how to prevent (if i'm supposed to be preventing) rust on my budgies' cage. Have had this problem with two new cages I have bought for the birds, and am worried it is something that I am causing. I am pretty sure the cage is powder coated, has a mix of green/grey colour. Prior to this I had a solid black painted cage, and that one has worse rust on it then the current one right now, although I have only washed this one a couple of times -.- Anyway, the people at the pet shop (who has birds) told me they'd had it for three years, and his hadn't rusted, so I am not sure whether I am doing something wrong, or if the cage has a problem with the coating and I should return it. Or, if I fell for the sellers scam telling me it's fine. There is no rust in obvious areas more in tight places I guess that I could not remove water from, tried air drying first time and that caused rust, and the only thing I am using to clean it is detergent and water. Is there any way to repair/get rid of rust that is safe for my birds? Or, even a way to prevent rust from occurring? Right now I have tied tea towels over the rusty parts as a precaution for my birds -.- it does not look pretty, but at least it is safe! Any help/advice would be appreciated! To have a safe and secure home for my birds is one of my priorities, don't feel I can relax until that happens, and thank you for reading.
