Hi guys! I'm going to show you how to turn a broken fan into a beautiful bird cage

Step 1: Fan

Take an old or broken fan and start taking it apart

Step 2: Scissor

Take a scissor and cut the cord of the fan

Step 3: Parts

Now these are the parts you're going to use of the fan

Step 4: Stainless Steel Wire Mesh

Get a stainless steel wire mesh with small holes 0.5 cm

Step 5: Measuring Tape

Bring a measuring tape and mark horizontally 1.30m and vertically 30cm

Step 6: Pliers

Take a pliers, remove the small parts on the fan grill and throw them away

Step 7: Cover

Take a plastic bucket cover, clean it and put it on the bottom grill

Step 8: Sewing

Now take the wire mesh and the bottom grill and start sewing them together using the fan cord

Step 9: Sewing

I bought two pieces so i'm gonna sew them together, you don't have to do this if you get 1.30m in length

Step 10: Scissor

Take the scissor and cut a square 16x16cm

Step 11: Door

Cut 20x20cm from the remain wire mesh to make a door

Step 12: Wire

Take a wire, cut it into 4 pieces, bend the pieces then use them to attach the door to the cage

Step 13:

Now take another wire, bend it's 2 sides and secure it on the door to use it to open and close the cage

Step 14: Sewing

Put the second grill on top of the cage and sew it with a cord exactly like you did to the bottom one

Step 15: Food Bowl

Take a bowl, make 2 close holes in the back using a scissor, take a wire and fix it in the bowl then attach the bowl inside the cage

Step 16: Water Dispenser

Now make a rectangular hole with the scissor and use a wire to secure the water dispenser

Step 17: The Swing

To make the swing take a long wire, bend it then take a paper and wrap it around the bottom part

Step 18: Tape

Take a wire tape and roll it around the paper

Step 19: Thin Cables

Take 2 thin cables, put them in the swing then attach the swing to the top grill of the cage

Step 20:

Make a perch with roling 2 wires together then rolling a cord around them

Step 21: Wood Perch

You can make a wood perch too by taking a small dry branch from a tree and putting it in the cage

Step 22: Newspaper

Put a newspaper at the bottom of the cage

Step 23: Food

Put food in the bowl

Step 24: Toys

Put toys in the cage

Step 25: Hanger

Take a bent wire and fix it on the top of the cage to make a hanger

Step 26:

Put the bird in the cage and that's it (^‿^).

The screen appears to be galvinized, which is deadly to birds. In addition to be far too small for any bird. Please do not do this.
<p>it's stainless steel not galvanized</p>
that cage size is only large enough for a canary at best and does nothing for its psychological health. captive birds need corners as a place to retreat to in times of stress. with the round cages being open on all &quot;sides&quot; without corners or a covering will lead to significantly increased stress and a shortened lifespan. I do hope if you plan on cage building for a bird do some real research into their particular needs as they are many and change with each species.
<p>i think that's a perfect cage for him plus i have a bird room and i let him fly out of the cage for some time, he is 5 years old now and he never had health problems or been stressed out.</p>
