I can build an aviary for you to your specifications if you wish. We want to build our African Gray an aviary for the pool patio (screened in and partially shaded) here in Florida but the choice of wire mesh is critical, as they can bend metal housekeys with their beaks and are, of course very sensitive to coatings.

The structure will be based on a 'carport' type building, with only the enclosed part having a solid roof. The mesh should be covered by wood, earth or drain rock as standing on wire is harmful to their feet. At least one third to half of an outdoor bird aviary should have a roof covering, and should be enclosed on one or two sides, depending on the prevailing wind direction.

The wire or mesh can be painted black (with non-toxic paint) to make it easier to see the birds from outside the aviary. Fit the screen door into the 31-inch space on the right front side of the aviary, and attach the hinges to the aviary frame. Wire mesh keeps the birds in the aviary and also protects them from predators.

A metal fabrication business should be able to construct the panels you need for the outdoor extension and hopefully install them onsite. After having the aviary for a few months it was time to get a aviary that worked for us. We wanted a rustic look so I decided it was time to build one.

Keeping birds has been a past time for generations, and keeping them in a safe and secure environment is a high priority for bird owners. Chemicals that are toxic for your small birds unless a protective interior liner is fitted to the bird aviary. Springboard's expansion and renovation of the National Aviary creates an iconic and welcoming group entry that reflects the National Aviary's function as a building that houses and celebrates birds.

Try to plan your aviary so that it gets the morning sun for your birds to enjoy. If you use wood then you should cover it in metal to prevent gnawing. When you are building a bird aviary you should think about the type of flooring you want to use. Then on top of the wire mesh flooring you would place gravel This gravel typically is the size of small stone pebbles because if the pebbles are too small then the birds will swallow the gravel.

Some sort of porch area, to accommodate an inner and outer door, will prevent birds from escaping. Whenever possible to build the birds aviary. If your aviary is a different size, modify the number of poles and the amount of wire to suit your plan. The overall cost of building an aviary reduces by almost 70% if one follows this guide.

Allow open sections so wet birds can remove them self from the aviary bird bath. If your parrots sleep in the outdoor aviary, take into consideration movement sensor lights can be disturbing, alarming and can compromise quality sleep. Birds can make great pets indeed, however, as much pleasure as they provide you, you need to provide them with a comfortable and well-designed aviary so they can be happy too.

We were determined to build the largest space we could afford to give our birds the maximum amount of freedom within a safe, protected environment where they could live like birds - flying, mingling as a flock and interacting with us on their own terms.

Aviaries are one of the best forms of enrichment I have found to offer my birds. So in other words, this book is your one-stop solution if you want to build your beloved birds an aviary yourself. Every model featured is designed to provide a safe easy to clean environment for your birds!
