Aviary mesh painting black

Recommended Posts

As above does it make a difference just cut mesh for aviary was going to get some black Hammerite paint and do front mesh panels coz side is against shed so won't be looking through that is it safe enough in case birds start pecking at it etc any advice appreciated in advance at taffey

It definately makes a difference i did it with a roller and some of that blackboard paint...i cant remember why it was blackboard paint but did the job perfect you,ll notice how much clearer the birds are straight away.

100% on this subject. The difference is amazing. All colours right in your face especially golds and yellows. Jok.

Same as the back of the aviary if it’s solid wall, diff colour paint make diff birds stand out much better, that’s why canary show cages have diff colour backs 😁

Plastic leaves mate ,surely not 

Plastic leaves are fine in avairys , I’ve had plastic leaves and old xmass tree branches in mine , especially good for nesting goldies , goldies love as much cover as they can get and having to keep removing old died off cover just keeps disturbing them
