Thought this very informative!http://www.finishing.com/237/73.shtml
Thanks for posting that! That was very useful. Some birds will chew through the nickel plating and get to the zinc layer, for those birds stainless is probably better. Fortunately, neither of mine seems inclined to chew the hanging hardware.
I thought the whole site was an interesting one! I am researching all the embellishments I put on the bird vest I made (pic posted around here somewhere…), wanting to make a few vests for friends but want to have solid info on each sewn-on article…
We have a stainless-ONLY rule here… we had a bird that got heavy metal poisoning from a nickel-plated bell
