Stainless Steel Bird Cages

Stainless steel bird cages are the best parrot cages you can buy, hands down. They cost more…and they are worth it.

Is a stainless steel bird cage the right choice for you? Although stainless steel cages cost more than those made from other materials, it offers many important benefits that no other material can match.

We offer a large selection of top-quality, name-brand stainless steel bird cages. A stainless steel birdcage can last a lifetime with proper care. Bird cages made from other materials such as wrought iron would eventually need to be replaced, even with the best of care. That's because wrought iron does not inhibit bacteria growth and will corrode over time. How much time depends on how thoroughly they are cleaned and dried.

See our valuable Stainless Steel Bird Cage Tips section for these products!

See our helpful chart with general information on selecting stainless steel bird cages by size and breed.

  • Stainless steel bird cages naturally resist the growth of bacteria because stainless steel is completely non-porous. (That's why it is used to make surgical equipment.) As you are likely aware, birds are highly susceptible to illness borne of bacteria so stainless steel cages vastly reduce or eliminate the threat.
  • Stainless steel bird cages are also non-toxic and bird safe because they do not have paint or powder-coating on them that can be chipped off and eaten by your bird. Powdercoating is potentially toxic to birds if lead or zinc levels are too high.

    That is not to say that there are no bird-safe cages that are powder-coated. The best powder-coated bird cages have their materials tested for lead and zinc and either do not contain those metals at all, or are determined to contain them at levels well below what is considered bird-safe. Beware of powder-coat or painted bird cages that do not specify that they have been tested by an independent laboratory and determined to be bird-safe.
  • Stainless steel bird cages are stronger and with proper care will last much longer than powder-coated wrought iron or cold rolled steel cages. In fact, stainless steel cages can last a lifetime with care and the right climate conditions. That's important to keep in mind when you are shopping. While it's true that stainless steel bird cages cost more than others, sometimes almost twice as much, you may never need to replace it. Even with the best of care a wrought iron or cold rolled steel cage will not last forever. You will eventually have to replace those cages.

    Because it is stronger than wrought iron we sell a lot of large bird cages and extra large bird cages in stainless steel. That's because large parrots such as Macaws cannot bend the stainless steel bars provided that they are an appropriate thickness or gauge. People who buy small bird cages and medium sized bird cages are less motivated by bar strength. They like the durability, ease-of-cleaning and the look of a stainless steel bird cage.
  • Stainless steel bird cages are easy to clean, resist rusting and will look terrific year after year. They won't lose their shine over time and stainless steel is very popular in home decor, so a stainless steel birdcage would fit in very nicely.
The good news is that you can find stainless steel bird cages today that have more style, but not so ornate as to be considered a decorative bird cage. Stainless bird cages tend to be more classic in style, not ornate. It used to be that they were just boxy looking, more for institutional use. But now that stainless steel bird cages are being demanded by individual parrot owners, they are being designed to fit in with a home's decor.

America's Pet Store carries play top bird cages, dome top bird cages and other styles in stainless steel. Corner bird cages, travel bird cages and certainly budget bird cages are hard to find in stainless.

It is recommended that you avoid abrasive cleansers, steel brushes and steel wool when cleaning either stainless steel bird cages or wrought iron, powder-coated bird cages. If you want to disinfect surfaces you can use a bleach/water solution of 1/2 cup of bleach and 1 gallon of water. Be sure to rinse thoroughly with clean, hot water and then allow the cage to air dry (or towel dry it) before your bird goes back in it.

Most stainless steel bird cages are put together with welded bars, as opposed to using a lot of nuts and bolts. This is good because a lot of times nuts and bolts can be made of toxic materials such as lead or zinc.
