|I know they have a "chicken wire" type material, but the problem is that psittacines (hookbills ie: parakeets, tiels, all parrots) chew through wood, so making something out of wood is going to be destroyed after a time (why lots of bird toys are made of wood.. gives them a happy feeling when they're chewing on wood, plus helps with feather picking in theory). I believe that HD has a type of "chicken wire" that's actually little bitty squares that are 1/2" that works fine.. had a 6'6" tall x 4' wide x 2'6" deep cage built that way that I had my finches in.
