So I'm curious to hear from actual breeders who use welded wire cages.......I have heard a lot of people say that they are completely fine to use AS LONG AS you soak them in vinegar before use (and spray them down with a vinegar solution every couple of months) and make sure that you buy the rolls that are galvanized after welding. But then a couple people I have talked to basically ripped my head off for even suggesting using galvanized wire mesh. I am wondering because I am planning out my aviary and trying to decide how I am going to build my breeder cages. I would Ideally like to use the galvanized wire mesh, just because it is so much cheaper and I have 15 cages and a flight aviary to build. Stainless steel would be great but it is waaaay too expensive for the cages I have in mind. Are there any other relatively cheap materials that you use for your own cages? Any responses are greatly appreciated!!!!

HI MVA
I have built 6 out door aviaries using galvanized wire...I have never had a problem with it. I have, however, quit using the steal doors on my aviaries...I found a great alternative...the Birdoor. You can find it on amazon or at www.birdseedrecycler.com
