    Re: To anyone with a grate...

    A grate that isn't removable is pretty useless and unhygienic. I would contact the manufacturer and see how they suggest you clean it other than through the cage door.

    Possibly return it and get a different type with removable grate.

    I agree. That would make it really hard to clean. You would have to clean it through the door of the cage, which is not doable. I would definitely contact the manufacturers. Maybe there is a trick to taking the cage apart that you have not found yet. Martin's cages has a pretty good reputation, so I would be surprised if they made a cage with a non-removable grate.

    until you figure out how to dissasemble it, try a fingernail brush... good luck!

    Man that really stinks!

    If you don't get a reply soon you might want to try e-mailing necroangel from the budgies n tiels site, I think necro's always been pretty big on the martin's cages.

    Rather than emailing, give them a call. That way you're guaranteed a response as they're right there whereas emails can be easily missed or ignored.

    RE:

    I've read somewhere that someone just brought their's outside and hosed it down.

    Though that might not get rid of the extra dry glued on stuff
