We have the Caloundra show on this weekend which is held up here in Maleny.

On Saturday night they will be having fireworks, should I be worried about the noise when they go off at 8pm?

I don't live far from the show grounds where the show is held.

I don't wont my birds going crazy in the aviary and hurting them selfs. :yes:

 

Thanks

Hard to know how the birds would react. My cavalier Cricket throws herself at the back door in panic over fireworks.

Maybe if you have a suitable sized tarp you could throw it over the aviary and see if it helps.

Fireworks near the budgies at the nationals is not a good idea ....is it :)

My aviary is fully covered with a night light so hopefully it will be okay.

I will report back on this subject after the fireworks and let you know how they went.

I was going to recommend putting a light on for them, but you've already got one. Good idea. I know it won't stop the sound, but may make it a little less stressful if they can see better!?!? Good luck!

not sure about birds but for training dogs to loud noises you need to start small.. clap from a distance then when they arent stressed by that clap louder, then get closer.. get a $2 cap gun and use that at a distance getting closer..

 

my dogs are really good with loud noises, thunder etc dont bother them, most of the neighborhood dogs go to town but when we have fireworks/thunder and the like

The fireworks have been and gone :wub: my boys and I were on the back veranda when they went bang and they were very loud and very bright from our place.

The birds handled it very well with not even a murmur coming from the aviary which really surprised me considering all the huge bangs :wub:

 

Thanks for all the advice.

I'm glad to hear that they did not get spooked.
