Cage or Aviary Wire Mesh Must be Safe for your Budgie
 

Mesh or Wire Must be Safe for Your Budgies


Budgies are extremely susceptible to Heavy Metal Poisoning

If you are using galvanized wire on the budgie's cage, it is important to clean it carefully.

If you wish to use stainless steel mesh, there are different options:

1-2-inch-stainless-hex-mesh-20-gauge

2-x-1-2-mesh

If you choose to use galvanized metal, you'll need to scrub it completely with white vinegar and a stiff brush. As per the information in the following link, doing so will remove any loose particles of zinc although it does not completely eliminate it.
