have any of you ever heard that KINGS cages are unsafe (contain zinc in the
metal)? i am having such a hard time finding a cage for my new grey. i
called expandable habitats but it will be several months before they can get
one to me and i need one in 2-3 weeks. in the meantime this man at a store
told me kings cages are unsafe and i should get my senegal out of his asap
since he bites the metal (which is no longer covered by their safe paint
because he's chipped it off). he wanted to sell me an acrylic cage but i
don't like them. so i called the pet bird report and all they would say is
they "don't recommend" kings cages, but she wouldn't say why.
my vet says he's never heard of a problem with kings but then i found out
he's never heard of the pet bird report either! (only birdtalk)
of course i'm in a virtual panic because of time restraints and the worry
that my senegal is getting zinc poisoning. and i don't know where to get
unbias information, so thought i'd try here. any help???
p.s. i am not good at using the internet and would appreciate if you could
thanks so much, nicole
