What is the proper way to restore a bird cage?
I found a very nice and unique bird cage but it seems the previous owner did a crappy job of painting it. It looks as though they hand painted it over chipping and peeling paint. It is an older looking semi-circle cage thats about 4' high, and seems to be delicate, like an antique. What steps should I take to properly restore this cage, and make it safe for smaller birds (ie keets, budgies, canaries)? Is paint thinner ok to use? And why do people always suggest using powder coat? Thanks

Give it a good spray washing. If you can sand each bar to remove the paint, please do so. You can apply a thinner on the cage to remove the old paint. But I prefer using dremel tools sanding to remove the old paint then spray wash it again. Then use bleach to disinfect the whole cage then give it another good spray... More

it would be better to buy a new cage. old cages carry disease, it was empty for a reason
