Great information Misty - thanks for posting the links!

I moved this to Resources and edited the title while making this a "sticky" so we can find this quickly in the future. Thanks again!

Has anyone ever ordered and received product from this company? (sinbads)
The reason I ask, I have tried 2times now to order from JDPets.com online and called, and have yet to receive a confirmation of my order or my order. I call and all he says is "trust me, I got your order" but won't take the time to double check.. and I still have nothing....

Is Sinbads and JDPets one and the same?

I've not ordered from either place but will soon from Sinbads.

No they aren't the same.
I've just had no luck with ordering from this company at all. (spreading the word :per say)

I didn't want anyone to waste time with a company that doesn't respond well... It's always nice to know if someone has had a good experience as well as a "not so good" one...

sorry for the confusion..

How is the quality Chase? Are they coated with anything? Like the Chinese cages we get at the fairs?

I'm going to build the box cages too - it will be much easier to keep them clean and breed the birds in compared to the wire cages...

I'm excited and can't wait to see them come together for you and me :D

I made my own, go to lowe's and buy their closet wire racks, 20" x12'
32.95 the wire spacing is 1/2" just cut them down to the size that you need.

Good idea! I will have to check that out as the size of the others was not my idea of good. I was thinking I would have to buy two to get the length I wanted... :?

After I got to thinking about it - my first thought was what about doors? :? Otherwise I think it would be a really good idea.
