Must admit building aviaries is one of my pet hates. Millet helped me bigtime with this last build, if I did it my way it would have been totaly on the piss and would have fell down by now :angel: .

 

Now I know you like doing it you can come and build mine if I need any ihn the future :laugh:.

shello dont forget the double door as u will never regret it .or cut a bit of for the weight room and have the extra door in that way

do it right the first time and you wont have to disturb the bird ect once you got it .a tip is where ur going to put the roost for when he is free lotfed and put some thick plastic where the bird is going to shit and alot easyier to clean also make the high birch's removeable so when u have the bird on its pirch teathered he will not be bating to the highest pirch

yes grovesy, there will be a 2nd door system going in mate (just have to think on that yet) and yes steve there will be a plywood going in both front and back!. Looking forward to getting it done now!

might even block along the back so far up as to save on plywood (can get cheap blocks off a mate :thumbs: )

as for weighing the bird i have a shed at top of steps so gonna use that for weighing and for freezer. got heavy duty plastic for the back wall to catch all the crap mate as for the roost i havn't forgot about it but was open to suggestions please!

was also gonna put a food chute in the front (in right hand side where it's open at moment, gonna plywood it and fit plastic elbow in) cheers lads

Looking good shello :thumbs:. for the bars I have used 22mm galvanised conduit for a few years now. it came in 16ft lengths and cut it to size with the angle grinder. I then used 3 x 2 CLS for the window frame which was drilled hafway through so the conduit dropped into the wood and not completey through, it was gaped around 3.5" from the centre of one bar to the next :victory: .

 

Must say bud you're making a grand job.

cheers, looking forward to getting the bird in there now
