Need cage part

I was given a nice cage and I need the bottom grate, it was missing. The cage looks like a Kings Cage but its not theres. If anybody might know what make it could be, that would be a start to find grate I need. Thanks

If you have a solid bottom like a pull out drawer to the cage you don't really have to have a grate. I purposely remove the grates from my cages. It's a hassle to get them clean, not all poop falls threw the grate. My birds sometimes will go after things they drop on the papered bottom, also play with the edges, or tear up bits of the paper for fun. I cover any big poops with a small piece of paper towel and replace the bottom papers every two days. I have never had to clean poop off the birds feet without using the grate. I have noticed the bird shops do not use bottom grates.

Thanks Judy, my wife said not to worry about it. I went to Home Chepo and bought a small coated fence and just bent it to cover bottom, works fine. Simple and cheap, if it gets built up bad Ill try without

Getting a new linnie bought a new cage, removed the grate. Now I have a space. So my hubby put something under the the pull out tray to lift it up. Works great, no gaps.

Glad you got it sorted! I've packed all of my cages up and goodness knows how but I will manage to lose bits and pieces

That's a great idea...I HATE grates because I find it easier to clean the paper than the grate, but if I remove the grate of my current "temporary" cage it leave too big of a gap. I never really thought of it, but that's the great thing about forums, someone else gives you such a wonderfully, simple idea.

THANKS.

(you don't know how excited I am, I can't wait for morning to fix the cage )
