    Building a mixed aviary

    I was wondering about building and aviary about 9.5 feet by 6 feet and wanted to put a mix of birds such as different finches, cockatiels, possibly a pair of conures (unless its too unsafe) or other birds and was wondering if this would be a big enough space for them and for everyone to mind...

    Pictures Sealing an outdoor aviary???

    I am based in Australia. I plan to build a 2 - 5 meter aviary on my verandah with my deck as base to make hosing it out easy. What can I use to seal the timber and protect it from damage by bird poop and water?

    Outdoor cages?

    hi folks! Do any of you have outdoor recreation cages in areas with access to predators? How do you do it? I would like to eventually offer my singular lovebird a larger outdoor cage to fly around in and sunbathe but my dad feeds two stray cats who “perform our pest control.” I have seen them...

    Glass Aviary

    This is a kinda weird thought, but what if I built a glass aviary, added ventilation, then added a frosting film on the outside of the glass so the birds don’t get it confused with open air? This would be indoors but still fairly large, I don’t know if I could pull it off but does it seem like a...

    New cage setup!

    Heya! This cage was such a nightmare to put together, and we've still had to leave some parts out. Hopefully when we try again next time it'll be easier and won't take 4 days and 4 men, lol. It's safe and works though! Luca is loving his new toys, and is particularly fond of the ladder.

    The Aviary at Waddesdon Manor

    I quite like how the aviary is blended into a traditional-looking garden structure at Waddesdon. My goal isn't something so grand, but I would like something that doesn't look like a big cage and there's certainly inspiration here. (wondering if there's an aviary inspiration thread on AA)

    Large aviary in Australia like the one linked?

    Howdy howdy, I'm moving out to a more rural area in QLD, Australia soon (avian vet still within a 3 hours drive, thankfully) but I'm looking to set up a massive space where my Eclectus can hang out during the day whilst my mother is with him at home and I'm out volunteering at clinics, farms...

    Which would be more effective: Bleach or disinfectant?

    I have a second hand aviary I am in the process of cleaning and disinfecting. I am still in the cleaning part. It is basically entirely made of metal. I am unsure whether bleach or disinfectant would be more effective, thoughts? The aviary isn't going to be used for a fair few weeks.

    Aviary base

    Hey Guys! I was just wondering… we got an aviary about one week ago and are now starting to fix it up and put a base on it. We were going to put concrete to prevent mice but I reckon that the quail with hurt their feet and the babies could get splayed legs. (Baby quails I mean) We then started...

    Mesh for Outdoor Aviary

    I am looking to have an outdoor aviary built for my macaws. This would just be a play area for outside time, they wouldn’t be living in it. Does anyone have a recommendation on which thick stainless steel mesh to purchase? Or where to order from? Thanks in advance!

    Bonding with an aviary bird?

    Kinda random thought I had today, how hard is it to bond with an aviary bird in an aviary? I don’t mean a super close bond, but a willing to interact bond. Surely with enough food treats it’s possible, eager for everyone’s thoughts. Just curious :)
