Large Cage Construction
I was pleasantly surprised when my Dad offered to help construct a new large bird cage for my budgies. He was estimating it to be around 3 feet wide and 6 feet tall (just to give you an idea of what we mean by "big"). He said we could use wood for the frame and metal for the rest. He loves to build things and is fairly good at it, and I know lots about birds, so I trust we can do well in this project!
When making this project, however, I want to make sure the cage is very safe for my budgies. What safe materials should I use? (including the kind of wood, metal, glue, nails, and other such things) What other suggestions do you guys have for the cage? (including sizes and arrangements)
Thanks in advance. I can't wait to start building it!
