    Cages By Design?

    I don't get it. Is there exposed wood or is it just the frame? They are beautiful cages but if there is exposed wood... well, birds will eat right through that $5000 cage.

    Anyway, anyone own one or at least ever actually gotten to see one in person? I'm designing my dream birds dream cage, lol.

    I've seen these before as well - is the cage enclosed in the glass (or acrylic I guess from reading the site)?

    On the "Majestic Cage Info" page, it says:
    "Aluminum Interior Frame GUARANTEED against wood chewing from the inside in bird cages and protects your cage from moisture in reptile cages."

    I guess email them and ask them if that means if the bird chews his way out they'll give you a refund? And then share the answer with us!

    I don't have the money for it now, but those are BEAUTIFUL.

    Actually. . . after reading a bit more, it says they use SS wire in the cages? I thought I read somewhere that wire was a poor choice for parrots since their beaks were strong enough to bite through it and they could hurt themselves on the sharp edges trying to squeeze out? Am I right, or blowing hot air?

    I don't have the money right now, either. But, if I was able to get my Hawkheaded in a few years, I think I would want one of those cages if they are built sturdy enough. They are gorgeous, I just would love to make sure that they would be okay. If I had the money, I'd buy Rosco a small one right now, lol. Maybe someday... a girl can dream, right?

    I don't like them, they look like furniture and I hate the idea of your bird being part of the decoration. Plus, I haven't seen one I thought looked nice anyway. There is one that gets advertised in birdtalk mag that is on four long legs and it looks so weird. Plus, I can't imagine how it would be to scrub those plexiglass walls everyday!

    If it were me, I would save the $4000 and redo one of my rooms to be a bird room.
