Oh yeah no, this rain is terrible. But it looks like it's finally clearing up some, and hopefully we'll have some nice sun today. :laughing12:

We've also had loads of rain here the past few weeks. I can't wait to get started on my aviary, I'm so excited to get it built :D

I want an Aviery too! But just don't have the funds or time for it yet :wacky:. All good things come to those who wait. As they say. Sad part is that i'm one of those impatient people:p

I know the feeling, luckily I've been able to save a bit, and my dad said he would give me the rest as an 18th birthday present :dance4: location has been chosen, just time to order all the materials and get building :D

Thanks, will definitely post pics!! Right now the spot I'm going to use is housing wood and corrugated iron :dead: So I'll need a few days to clear all that out! I'm building it on to an already existing building, as it already provides a roof, which will save me a heck of a lot! Its going to be fairly small for now, but I'm already planning on expanding once I've saved up some more! And there's a room right next to it where I can store dry food and other equipment :D Luckily I've dragged my boyfriend into helping, he's totally handy with tools! As for me, I'll do the interior decor and the supervising ;)

When I hear that name it reminds me of another movie I loved, even though the spelling is different~ Nim's Island

The Secrets of Nimh is an old animated movie based on the book Mrs Frisby and the Rats of Nimh :D It's a really cute story about rats and mice! :joyful:
That is still one of my most favorite animated movies! Hahahahaha still have it on video!!! Mrs Frisby is my most favorite character!:laugh:

Calling all mousers! Nimh has been showing some rather peculiar behavior lately, and I'm fairly certain he's wanting to mate! First of all, when I put my hand around him as if to hold him, he puts his crest up, sticks his butt in the air, and 'quivers' madly, making a loud "trrrrrrrr" sound. He is also spending way more time in his 'nest', often I find him in there during the day, and when he sees me looking at him he starts doing little quivers and making little noises. :wacky: Its super cute but from this behavior, is it possible he's a girl? :laugh: I'm not sure if I would be able to stop calling 'her' a him! :roflmao:

Thanks so much @srtiels , Nimh definitely has mites/lice, little grey buggers that crawl around. I'm treating him with non-toxic eco-ban bird powder that was recommended and apparently works very well. Still waiting to see results though! I will see if I can get hold of some of the products in the links you posted :)
