Bird Cages Fort Myers FL

The design of a bird cage is also very important. Avoid cages in which the bars form a “V”; this kind of design poses a serious hazard because a bird can easily get a leg or other body part caught and twist or break it while thrashing about. In addition, the cage door should close and lock firmly. A door that leaves a gap presents a potential safety hazard to a curious bird.
