    .....

    Powded zinc may be used in pait for cages in cheap, crap quality cages sold in small, crap petshops.

    But if you bought your cage from a respectable petshop which has more than one branch then it wouldn't but them kind of cages it wouldn't risk the reputation of the shop.

    Powdered Zinc in Cage Paint

    I have been on a constant search for the possible reasons of why Peaches might have passed away. Today I was talking to a friend of mine who brought up something about Powdered Zinc being used in paint on cage bars. Has anyone else heard about this?

    I suggest you test the cage anyway, just to be sure if it is safe or not.

    I'd have to say that I wouldn't be surprised if large chain pet stores such as Petco or PetSmart carried such cages. I am extremely unimpressed, if not sickened, by how they treat their birds. If they can mistreat the animal itself, why would they be concerned with the cages or other products they are selling?

    My main concern is that Scooter is ok. How would I go about testing these cages for Powdered Zinc?
