My boyfriend and I have been discussing getting a bigger cage for my budgie, and he somehow came up with the idea to purchase a dog cage and renovate it into a bird cage. I was a bit leery of the idea at first, thinking it would be difficult to make it work, considering that the bars at different and bird perches are probably not designed to work well with them, but I told him I'd look into it. I would certainly be willing to go about this if I'm certain it will provide enough safety for budgie, and be feasible. Has anyone else ever done this? If so, how did you go about it, and what kind of advice could you offer about it? If anyone else has any advice, information, comments or concerns, please let me know. Thanks, all.
