    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 :)

    New house, new aviary for our birds

    We are moving into a new house in about 6 weeks and we found one with a perfect aviary space already on place. The former owners used it as a greenhouse so it should be comfortable temps year round. There are screened windows in 3 panels for air flow. During extreme weather we can bring them...

    I’m not sure if this is the correct place to post this, but I’ve been thinking about turning one of my sheds into an aviary, I don’t have measurements but it’s atleast twice as long as my master bedroom. (I know that probably doesn’t help much) but it is fairly large. I currently have 4 budgies...
