Types Of Wood

Recommended Posts

Hi all


I have moved to Turkey recently and we get very hot summer weather. A lot of the better wood is treated to give a longer life in the heat. I am having an aviary built and am worried that the wood or the wood treatment may be toxic to the birds. Can anyone provide any advice on this matter. Can I buy untreated wood and then find something I can treat it with that is not bad for the budgies.

Hi Mike, You should be able to buy untreated wood. You can then treat the

outside with a preservative & the inside with household emulsion paint

That's all I've used for many years........B.J.
