When to Replace Your Finch Cages?

June 04, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 196

Finch cages can be quite the big investment, so it is very understandable if finch and pet owners in general are loathe to replacing old ones. However, if you do not do anything to remedy old cages that are slowly but surely falling apart, you may be in from some serious repercussions. Your finches could escape, get injured, or be in an unhealthy environment that may even lead to their demise. This is why it is so important to have cages that are still in good condition. So, the question follows, how does one know if it is time to replace their cages? We've got answer to that in this post!

1. Replace your finch cages when they become too rusty - Humans don't take very well to rust. If you cut yourself with a rusty piece of metal, you could put yourself at the risk for tetanus. Keeping a rusty cage may not only put your pets in danger from being cut, but it also puts you, the owner, in danger of being cut yourself. Keep everyone safe and throw out rusty cages.

2. Are the wires in your cages beginning to bend and get too pliable? If they are, then it is high time to start shopping for new finch cages. If you don't, then you live with the danger of your pets escaping. Not only that, a clever cat our mouse could find a way to bend these wires, get inside the cage, and eat your finches! That would be an unfortunate scenario indeed!

3. Are you guilty of having too many birds stuffed in one cage - Overcrowding of finches in one finches cage is a big no-no! These birds can turn on one another and disrupt the breeding or mating process. Always make sure that your finches are comfortable in their cages. They must have ample space to fly and move about.

4. Get rid of cages that are far too dirty to be cleaned - Infection and disease are two culprits for finches' death and so it is very important that you protect your pets from these dangers. Clean their cages regularly, so the dirt does not build up. If a cage has gotten too dirty despite all the cleaning, then you will have to replace it instantly. You do not want your birds dying from disease!

Should you want to avoid getting new finch cages so soon, then you should do everything that you can to take care of your existing cages. If you do that, then it may be years before you need to get new ones!
