    Hello all!! I’m going to get 2 brand new parrot cages in the future and for one cage I won’t be covering the grate of the cage with newspaper as my 2 cockatiels rarely touch the floor of the cage and I was wondering as long as I clean the grate once or twice a day with f10, will it be ok or can the bird droppings cause the bars on the grate to rust??

    Hi Martin...
    If it’s one of the new type cages, which have a powder coating on the metal...then you won’t have any problems with droppings affecting the metal bars :thumbsup:

    Hello and Welcome I have never had grills rust through bird droppings although I only use grills for a few birds.
