Default Spraypainting / Re-Finishing Cages

Hi ...

I'm considering at some point that I might spraypaint my cage. [ I saw there's a stick on here re. how and the best paints to use. ]

Has anyone had success doing this? How did it turn out? Do you have an pics you can share?

Thanks...!

Default Spray paint the cage

You are free to do as you like with your cage, but I will not spraypaint a birds cage because I am concerned about their health.

Exactly... I'm not sure how safe this is or is not... & I want to investigate if people are wary of it or have done it with some success, using the appropriate materials and procedure. It seems like it's not possible, however I did see a sticky advising on how to do it. ...Wondering if anyone here on the boards has. I agree with you definitely... health & safety of the bird first and foremost. ... Thanks for the feedback.

I haven't done it personally, but I have heard that the best paint to use is Rustoleum and you have to let it set properly/cure for a pretty long time, but other than that I have no other words than "good luck"!

Hopefully some other members will have some better advice

Yeah... I'm not planning on doing it anytime soon.... but if other's have had a good experience with it or advice, I might do it at some point. I would probably make sure I'm neurotic about it and let it cure double the recommended time. ....I figure it could work because the cages come with paint on them already. At least I think that's what it is. (the basic cages that come in white or black.)

One of our staff members has painted cages in the past.
I'll flag your thread for her and ask her to respond to you.

I have regularly painted my cages as I show my parrots and I show them in wire cocky cages and they have to be painted silver for the wire and gloss black for the base. They get knocked around when the birds are being judged so they have to be touched up every year. I have never had a problem with any of my birds and they regularly climb on the wire bars using their beaks. I use a spray paint in a can, in Australia pretty much all of the paint available is water based and not oil based, by legislation. Only certain colours still contain lead and are oil based and they are mainly the red tones and metallic paints. What the laws are in the US regarding paints I am not sure.

Where I was living before I had to do the cages fairly close to the show date as we had that much dust and dirt in the area the cages would not stay clean for long. In my new house that is not going to be a problem as I will be able to do them well in advance of a show as I now have good storage for them between shows. At the moment all my birds are in the show cages as I only moved just over three weeks ago and haven't set them up in their permanent cages as yet. I have had to let them acclimatize to the lower temperatures here first. It has been unseasonably cold for the time of year and I am still regularly using my slow combustion fire to keep warm at night.

I have attached a couple of pictures of my cages.
