you could always use that heay duty plastic strips u get in factorys to act as you doulbe door,when ur bird is bowed out you dont want any perch;s as it will bait to get to the highest point that why i said make them removeable so u can easly take them out when needed same as a wing if thats what u want .best tip is dont over complicate it

How essential is it to have part of the roof area open? I realise it's better but just how important is it as my mews is only 6ft deep so would 2ft of open area alont the full 10ft width be ok? If so is wire mesh the best thing?
thanks for the help/advice
i would use BOP netting mate got mine from knowls netting very cheap, wire will damage your bird if it flies into it and other animals like foxes can walk on it and worry your bird with the netting they wont and he will need an open area mate so he can weather or you will need to bow him in the garden mate when you dont fly him

i remembered you both saying about leaving an area open at the top so was gonna do it, just wondered how vital it is. will goggle the netting, just need an idea for roost!
also mate it will let air flow through the mews better mate they can get really stuffy

Its good easy netting to work with, the stuff I used was 12ft wide by 52 metres long, it was handy as me and Millet slung it across the who section of over 70ft of aviaries
a couple of pictures before the partition was put up across the entire front, and one when finished before being sprayed with fence care...

just a small bit then ha ha, nice one yea will defo get some of that netting, just had a look on knowles website,seems cheap enough
It was far from finished in them pictures, still needed food shoots, nest ledges and all the other cosmetics before they was the finished article, I still alter them now as and when I think its beneficial to do so ....
