Safety Door On Aviaries A Must

Recommended Posts

This morning went out to do my normal check on my little feathered friends and got to the main aviary started to open the safety door with cuppa tea in hand and boy what I fright I got. :o , My babies where in the safety part, silly me forgot to bolt the door last night :blush: and I don't know if I left the door open a bit or the wind blew it or the birds did it but there were 20 babies in there.

It took me a while to be able to get in without them flying out over my shoulder but I managed to put my cuppa down without Jake slurping it and put them back where they belonged.

But all I can say thank god for safety doors and thankfully I had closed that well too because sometimes it sits funny and a bird could squeeze through. My winning spangle was out too, just horror it was.

What was on my mind the most was did I clean up the mice bait, which I had done but panicked over it. There is no food in there for them.

Anyway all is well, all birds are fat and healthy.lol

This is the perfect reason for a safety door.

Any garden lime, just NOT BUILDERS LIME. I can't think of the brands. you can get it from bunnings in different so bags a little bit goes a long way.

I laid mine a few weeks ago and then had to take it up to treat them with sulpha what a pain.

Hey you have to make sure it does not get wet because it holds moisture and could be dangerous if it gets wet, Geoff told me that, but it is good kills bacteria or what ever gets on the floor.

 

Oh yeah about my birds , my heart sank to the bottom I swear when I saw them out, I still haven't done a count but the escape door was closed probably for a change so I am sure they are all there. Just worried about the spangle lol, the sky is out in a holding cage.

Ask some one else about the damp because Geoff told me that. But I took his advice because I would hate to loose birds.

 

Didn't you fix the damp problem, wasn't from the excess rain

 

Hey I have an idea, you could do the aviary like mine, remember I divided it in sections, So the only place I have the lime is under the perch area. Well I paln on putting wire grids over that area.

So if you went that way you could use your lime, or you could use the wood shavings but I found the wood shaving a pain they go everywhere. I will post some pics of my set up later

ha ha glad you have confidence in me because i don't.

Just disappointing that the bird shows haven't taken off, I am thinking leaving them uptil next year maybe start them up in Feb March when the show season really star and that way the birds will be spotted etc what do you think.

Judge the ones going now and then have the Christmas break.

and

Well guess what there is a new comp about to star and it is right up your ally Gb. lol

lol oh really up my ally mmmmmmmmm let me guess

Christmas comp :) ??????

 

i think the bird shows needed to be more warning and i think need a few cadagorys as its hard to judge somebirds against others so maybe the rececive variertys could be jugded and dominant variertys in another some may feel better about posting and a big vetral rosette for first second and thirds given on peoples page lol where siggy goes now thats a insentive hee hee

There will be varieties Gb, there will be a show for any age green, grey green all varieties will be done over time.

There will also be 2011 rung varieties too But see because they are shows birds really need to be spotted and not moulting because it is a learning thing also.

So that is why I thought we have the christmas break and start up again Feb March. And I will give a warning from Jan .

The rosettes was one idea on my mind but I will have to ask for permission to post them on someones siggy. But a rosette for the winner each week. okay cool I will look into that.

Pete (chookie) was going to judge the next show.

I will set them on a new thread I guess and can put your placing under on a new post.

something like this or maybe I should send you a message with them on it and then you do it and send it back to me and then I can put them back on the orginal thread in their placings.

 

1st place Entry No what ever and write a little comment

it will be much harder than the show ones because you are judging pet type but you can choose how you vote on the bird or the cuteness or what ever.

If you like you can just write their placings it is up to you. Your the judge lol.

Where is Gina has to write a comment on each bird.
