What type of metal are bird cages made of?

Generally stainless steel or a powder coated steel. Ensure there is no rust on the cage and the strenght of the bars depends on the size and strength of the bird. YOu do not want the bird's head to get caught between the bars so you must ensure the cage is suitable in size and space between the bars. Another very important thing to look for is if you buy a powder coated cage you must do a detailed inspection making sure there are no spots in the coting that have chipped off or your bird will find them and keep pealing off the coating causing the cage to rust. Also if your bird ingests the coating it can make your very very sick. Hope this helps! Cartier736 ; )
