New Avairy

Recommended Posts

Three weeks from This thursday. :)

 

Here is the current plan.

Finish the stock cages this week end.

Put the existing aviary on Ebay for 10 days.

After sold move the birds and equipment to the garage and into the stock cages.

Dismantle the old aviary for moving. (Most to be done by the new owner)

When the new shed arrives. Build it. Fit it out and move the birds back in.

 

While the birds are in the stock cages, I'll be re evaluating them and culling them.

I have some chicks that have to be reassessed. eg they looked to be cobalt but have changed to skyblues.

And of cause the mistery budgies. :)

RThanks Hath, Well the aviary is sold. A neighbour saw it on ebay recognised it as mine and knocked on the door. We agreed on a price and since I had no biddders I removed it from sale.

 

I have also been busy on the Stock Cages.

Except for the two top ones, they are now finished.

 

Things are starting to look good. I'll have to wait til tomorrow to find out when the new shed should be arriving. Possibly three weeks time.

Daz, the new stock cages are looking great! I was wondering do you buy the cage fronts or are you a whiz with a solderer(?sp)/welder?

The stock cages are looking great and I'm looking forward to see the new shed.

Also I've decided to build my new avairy/birdroom, because I'm expanding my lovebird and budgie stock and also I would like all my cages in one area as at the moment they are moved whenever my parents need the space for some purpose., also I currently have 8 different cages scattered around my large backyard which is quite a lot of work, carring around water and seed and cleaning cages.

Anyway I love the set up of your avairy on ebay and I was wondering if you had time you could write down a small list of the materials you used if not I'd just like to ask about. If you found it a good bird room/avairy?

Sorry my post is so long . I'm so jealous of the lucky person who bought it!

Carri :ausb:

daz how did the cull of birds go (not killed) its quite hard to decide isnt it

I haven't culled yet. The top row are the birds that have been given to me or I have bought at auction.

The next two rowes are the fledges chicks from the birds above.

The bottom row is the BIrds and their chicks that I have had since the beginning.

 

It is a hard discission. I have a Meeting night this monday and am going to approach one of the members to help me decide on the cull.

 

I'll let you know how it goes.

Una I will be send that to the dump tomorrow.

 

Todays been a big day.

 

The birds have been relocated and reaprased as to there proper variety.

 

I have a chick nearly broke it's leg. I found it caught in the nursary through a hook. Don't know how it did it. I checked it and found the skin had been torn to the bone. She is okay to night and has started to reuse it. I keep a mixture of Olive oil and detoll on it. All the hooks have been changed to a different type.

 

Taken one trip to the dump.

 

Demoed a shed and relocated it to the neighbours.

 

Watched the Aussie and the Kiwis game. Great game. Two great teams.

 

.........and now to rest. :( Tomorrow will be just as big. Oh for those tha have wondered. I have two pairs in the breeding cage. one has 6 eggs the other 5 chicks under 16 days old. The move to new locations didn't worry them. The hen is still siting on the eggs and the other parents are feeding the chicks.

Back yard cleaned in 34 deg c heat.

 

Birds are enjoying 31 deg heat today in the garage. Better than 42 in the old aviary.

:( Good Luck with the aviary Daz, swooning here seeing the temp, we did get to that a few times this past summer and I nearly died. See the grass is turning brown as well, do you have watering restrictions? :(

So odd to have you so hot and us so cold.
