Question Replacement food/water bowls

Sponsored Links
Hi, I have an old cage that is missing the bowls it originally came with.
They're not the usual circles that are in most cages so I haven't had any luck finding replacements. I have attached pictures of the measurements.

Anyone have any idea where I possibly find something that may fit?

Thank you!

Re: Replacement food/water bowls

A regular circle dish with a lip will do you OK . But looking at the finish up close it may be time to either strip and re-paint or just replace that cage . I see paint or coating puckering and splitting that food bowl holder.

Re: Replacement food/water bowls

It could be time to have a look at the shiny news ones IMO. It isn't worth taking the risk of a bird being able to get at any flaky parts and causing health problems. Need suggestions of sites to visit just shout. Nice legs btw LOL

Re: Replacement food/water bowls

The biggest concern with flaking paint is ingestion of the chips and rusting of the underlying metal. Heavy metal poisoning is problematic with birds and is often incurable. Please consider either stripping/repainting with a good lead-free paint or getting a new one.
