So I was wondering if I could get some advice on whether or not a second hand cage is such a great idea. I have found a cage at our local produce but it's $300 which is something I can't afford right now while looking for a job and trying to keep Bucky and his friend happy and healthy.
I've found it for $60 from someone who is leaving the country, I'm sending my mum to look at it on Saturday as I'm away for a few days and was wondering what your opinions were on the whole second hand cage thing?
In looking at it, I've given her instructions to check for: wire warping, rust, paint peeling and just the general look of it.
If we were to find it acceptable and purchase it, how would I go about disinfecting it and making it almost 'brand new'.
I believe the coating on the paint on this cage is powder coating so it might need a fresh coat how would I go about doing that?
p.s. i am aware that $60 is extremely cheap which is why I want a thorough check to make sure it's A OK
