Hopefully once done I can spray the cages to give them a new finish

Just wondering if anyone has used a hand held steam cleaner to blast of all the cr*p from the cage wires?
I was going to suggest this rather than acid wort a try but it will be slow. If they are molinarie cages why not get them power basted it's done with very tine particles. If they are soldered with soft solder do do it as they would fall apart.

Is there a product that I can spray on my wire cages that will loosen all the grime on the wire to make it easier to remove so that I can then repaint (prime and respay).

Just power hosing and rubbing doesn't see to work well enough - it needs some agent to help lift the build up on the wire.

John if you check any birds you have from Europe I suspect that they will be rung with size D rings

I put C rings on them this morning I was putting all the rings on their right foor but when I got to the last the tips of it's toes were missing strange to be honest but no matter I rung the left leg of this bird. I think it's going to be a brown like it's mother and if a hen it will be going no where anyway so no problems.

Going to check the three goldies to see if they are strong enough to be rung. If too big I will put D rings on them as they will not be for sale.
