Well I like the look of your birds! :D

 

And the boss is correct, when you aviary breed many times one or two nest boxes is coveted by many hens so fights break out and all *** lets loose .... you may lose a bird or two, you are much more likely to have fertile eggs chucked out by competing hens or hens preventing the mother to feed her chicks ... and then the dead chicks get chucked out too. :(

 

While the 'houses' you have made are delightful if you are to stand any chance of diminished bloodshed you should have double the amount of breeding nest boxes available per pair of breeding birds and they should be at the same height if possible.

 

But Good Luck any way! :)
