    YES! It could be extremely harmful. Most paints contain nasty stuff that can kill your bird. It's not worth it. If you really want another colour cage, buy a new one from a good manufacturer. If you want to add colour ot the cage, you could buy toys and food dishes in defferent colours.

    well, if you could take it to a lace that does powdercoating (most car painting places do it) and see if they have any paints that don't contain zinc, lead or other harmful things, you could get your cage re-coated. Powder coating is much harder than just spraypaint and your bird/s should not be able to eat it off... however, this would cost quite a bit, buying a new cage might even be cheaper
