Window/Door Screening Safe for Birds if They Chew it?

The bars in the bird cage I have for my lovebirds are too far apart. The birds can get out of the cage. What window/door screening is safe to put around the outside of the cage to keep the birds inside?

Lovebirds and their cage

Yes, the cage they're in IS REALLY a birdcage. Aluminum window screen does not harm bids. The screen is on the OUTSIDE of the cage -- no way the birds can become entangled in it Also, aluminum screen does not tangle up.

Window screen around bird cage

Are you sure the cage you have is indeed a bird cage? Most cages have a standard width between the bars and even bird cages for large parrots do not have enough space for a small bird to squeeze through. I would recommend buying a cage suitable for your size bird. Putting any type of screening or mesh around the cage would not be safe. The birds could chew it and possibly cut their mouths or they could become entangled in it with their feet and risk injury or even death.
