Below is my understanding on moving fledgling from breeding cage to an aviary, please feel free to correct me if I am wrong or add additional info if any to this:

 

* Chicks are fledged at around 4 weeks from nestboxes.

 

* At the age of 6 weeks, this fledglings are separated from parents and moved to nursery cage from breeding cage.

 

* After first moult at age of 12 weeks, we move fledgling to an aviary and at this stage fledgling is called as juvenile.

 

I have done some research regarding type of aviary to which this juvenile birds are moved, but I got mixed answers that each sex is moved into their own flight/aviary and another one is moved into the common flight/aviary. But personally I am not sure.

Everything you have said is correct. With regard to seperate sexes in aviaries thats down to personal opinion but most people seem to keep mixed flights/aviaries. Assuming there are no nest boxes in the aviary to tempt any youngsters into breeding too early they will be fine :D

As Kaz says it's down to personal choice and also available space.

 

I have a nappy cage and keep my birds in there until they start to moult then move them to the main avairy as I dont have the space for a juvenile one and I dont separate the sexes.

 

The most important thing is it works for me.
