Water marks on cage paint

by Lynn

The powder coating on my cage, on the side where I put my bird bath, has dark spots. The cage is a medium dark gray. Does anyone have a solution to make the cage look better? THANKS!

Cage paint

The ONLY thing you can do is to use 2-part epoxy on those areas. You will have to take cage away from bird and do it outside(bird will need another cage for a while). Leave outside to air and gas out for a week or two to be safe. Once the 2-part epoxy dries completely, it is non-toxic. We had to fill some large cracks in Manzanita perches, and asked our vet about it. She said that the 2-part epoxy would be safe to use, but we had to let it air for a couple of weeks outside.

As for painting bird cages, there are NO safe paints to use that hold up. The powder coat paint is the only one, and you have to know what was used in its manufacture before you even put your bird into one. Its drawback is that it has to be run through a baking/setting machine which most of us don't have access to.

Thanks for asking question before doing anything, as bird cages, especially parrot cages, are difficult when it comes down to the paint.
