New Avairy

Recommended Posts

Hi Tricky we at PRBS are very strict you only need to love budgies to be a member. We have members that don't own budgies but are still interested in them.

 

We have a meeting on the 27th August. There will be a table show and a discussion on Crested.

You are invited.

 

Pine Rivers Budgerigar Society Inc - Web Site. < Have a look.

 

Oh Cool :D

Actually, I was wondering about the City/Shire Council and at what stage the government takes in interest in caged birds as an interest or concern for council permits as opposed to having just one or two as pets. Is there a number like 50, 100, 200?

I think the most I've ever had was 36, at any one time.

 

regards

 

Patrick

Same as you :D

We're just down near Les Hughes (where the fire was last Sunday arvo). I believe you would have copped the smoke from it.

 

I've plugged that local meeting into my calendar - hopefully I can get to it. Definitely keen to come see the show in September, though.

 

:)

I'm over at Warner at the back of the Shopping Centre. It wasn't too bad with the smoke.

 

Hope you can make the meeting or at least the show.

 

There is an auction on the 30th September there at the hall. Some very good birds will be up for sale.

I better start saving then Daz :)

 

Pine Rivers has a 20 bird limit and Caboolture has a 50 bird limit (until a permit is needed). :D that's a big difference.

 

Hope you can make it to the meeting Patrick.

Same here - no limit on birds but they've just introduced a 1 aviary limit on us! :)

I've got 4 of various sizes - I hope it means for being new into the fancy.

a mite crawled in my laptop, behind the screen and then died there :(. So now whenever I use that thing there is a dead mite, right in the middle of the screen. :)

 

Ummm ... nope. I would say with almost 100% certainty is that you have a "dead pixel" in your LCD. Quite common and has nothing to do with feather mites, dust mites or any other mite ...

Just join the 4 of them together ;)Or do what I do and don't have "aviaries" - just have bloody big "cages". :(Laughing out loud):

If you merge 20 and 50, you get 70 :( That would only be fair.

I've heard a lot of people are excited about the Caboolture.Redcliffe.And.Pine. Shire Council ..... oh ... and Kilcoy :P

That's what I thought, make joining paths and you suddenly only have 1 aviary :D

70 sounds like a perfect compromise :ausb:

I still have to sort out the conversion of the stock cages to breeding cages and to tidy up the existing breeding cages but at least the birds are back flying.

 

:P

 

This is a real tribute to you. Your passion and dedication is definitely unquestionable. A lot of work and a lot of money!

I wish every success with your birds and the coming season. WOW

Hi Daz

 

Did you ever consider a clear polycarbonate sheet above the flights to let in more natural light or do you think that may have increased the temperature inside more.

 

Thanks

Temperature was the may issue. The roof is also insulated as is the walls. Part of the insulation is for sound restrictions as well. When the aviary is closed down you can hardly hear the Birds.

 

 

Hi daz,

Cost to date is around $4500au. But I am changing all the breeding cages to melamine which will probably ad another $500au to the costs.

Hi Daz

How ya going?

Here are some pics of my setup so far. Under 1/3 of the way there.

Thought it may give you some idea's when you change yours.

The first picture is of the row of boxes, the ones up the end are the draw type. I don't like them. The box is to big and pulling them in and out shakes everything around and disturbed the birds too much.

?action=view&current=DSC00277.jpgDSC00277.jpg">

The others are the more typical that are clipped on the front with a slide up door it it a lot better.

?action=view&current=DSC00278.jpgDSC00278.jpg">

When the box is not needed I made a cover to block the entrance. Or you can reverse the box and hang it from the back.

?action=view&current=DSC00279.jpgDSC00279.jpg">

Another 12 cabnets to go. That will give me 21 nests. I will stop at that for the time being.

I have a few of the all wire cages I may setup the end. But from what I have seen from other people that use them. They are easy to clean at the end, but make a big mess when the birds are in for 3 or 4 months.

Polycarbonate can also make the birds flighty as well. Every time a bird flies over they think it's a predator ready to swoop! I have had it before, okay in breeding room for more light, but I wouldn't use it for flights again.
