Default Bird Cage

Welded this bird cage up for a guy. Bigger is better i guess right? He had it all planned up and just had to cut and weld. Took 4 hrs. Seems like it would be something you would like to make bird fanatic. It will hold his parakeets

top is angled so he can put plywood on it. for the weather and has a few holes drilled in it to bolt them down.

door is hinged and has a simple latch for a lock.
bottom slides in and out so you can easily change out the poop.
if you notice, the top has some threaded rod welded to it so he can slide on boards and a heating lamp for winter (its an outside cage for parakeets in tx)

Only some the security door can easily be added but if it houses birds and can easily be accessed by walking in.We call it a walk in aviary .I have been on a bird forum for almost 2 years and owned birds a lot longer then that
