Glass Birds

A glass bird cage, what do you think ?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b90lfNALXnc

I'd never build something for a bird with glass. It would become too hot. Plexiglass is a much better material as you can drill holes in the sides for venilation in addition to having the screened top. You can do so much more with Plexiglass. I like the way she made the perches tho' - If the PVC tube at the top is meant to be climbed on, it needs to be sanded or wrapped with rope so the bird can balance and climb on it. By attaching the climbable grate with bungie cords probably most birds would gnaw through the bungie cord and bring the perch down. With plexiglass, you could drill a hole and attach the grate with a U-hook or simply bolt it to the back panel, thus eliminating the need for the bungie cords. If the cage should ever get knocked over, the chances of it breaking or shattering would be another reason not to use glass for cages. Again, this would be eliminated if plexiglass were to be used. I would also apply butterfly or some type of decal especially if the bird is flighted and would try to fly back to the cage. With nothing that shows the impenitrability the bird would most likely fly directly into the glass in an effort to fly directly to his perch (at least the first time but it could cause injuries so why chance it?).
