I find Penelope chewing on her cage an anything metal...

Would this be an iron deficiency or something else ?????

Never had that happen ...

I would think she just likes to chew. You could spray the metal with bitter apple. Does she chew toys or bones?

I got her every toy an chewy thing under the sun...lol I thought maybe cause there both metal it might be some sort of iron deficiency or something ????

Fatboy did this as a puppy. He was just looking for stuff to

Chew on.  He ended up knawing on an edge of his crate and slightly cut his gum.  I never heard him yelp so loud before or since then.  Just be careful how much she chews so she doesn't hurt herself.
