what material mesh?

Oh help I'm so confused my head is spinning. I cant afford stainess steel. so galvanised and scrubbed or aluminium? both of which can be toxic and I've read aluminium is lethal but then saw aluminium aviaries for sale, most are made of galvanised scrubbed metal. Which to choose, do you have an aviary. Whats it made of? Help!

Nearly everyone in UK with an aviary uses galvanised mesh. According to what I read even the expert budgie breeders said galvanise is ok to be used. If it's so bad then why are manufacturers still produces galvanised mesh for people to build aviary? I can't think what else you could use.

yeah, that's what I think. After all it's gonna get mucky and need scrubbing anyway so you might as well clean it with vinegar, its cheap enough!
or get powder coated aluminium. most of the cage will be under cover so its the struts I need to worry about.
I best get searching the net for a supplier!
