    Best Way to clean bird grate?

    When you leave them to dry, do you just leave it to air dry or dry the bars yourself? If air drying, can it cause rust?

    Waxing Grates

    Just thought that the poop would slide through the grate this landing on the paper in the tray thus making the cleaning of the grate/grill much easier

    Waxing Grates

    I don’t mean the bars on side or back of cage, mean on the grill at the bottom just so their poop slides off it?

    Waxing Grates

    ive read on a website that if you wax the bars on a bird/parrot cage grate, then the birds poop doesn’t stick to it and it ends up on the newspaper on the tray below, is this true? If so what do I wax the bars with? Also would it be a danger for a kakariki as he likes to walk around on the grate?
