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 

I guess things have moved on .My uncle bred British birds and took as much care of the real trees and shrubs within the averies as he did the birds .I hate plastic leaves or flowers .

Yes mate i gave the aviary and shed and everything to my nephew he,s loving it all.....i always knew id get back into it at some point when life settles down a bit its a cracking little hobby i really enjoyed it.

Should i recognise your name Sid there was only a handful of lads on here into the birds your name doesnt ring a bell though ?

We have loads of conifers in the garden so i used to put bits in the aviary,the birds loved it but it gets so unsightly when they turn brown i ended up sticking bits of fake xmas trees in but that plastic stuff looks fine....i always wondered about growing Ivy up the back wall of an aviary it would look nice and be natural for the birds.

Are my eyes playing tricks on me or is that corrugated sheeting you have over the front of that aviary Taffy ?

The plastic will be for a wind/weather break and hops are a quick growing and good looking insect attracting plant to plant in aviaries,but the thing about any natural plants in aviaries with native birds in them is the birds pick them to bits and you need a fast growing plant to keep up with them or wire over them which defeates the object a bit..

How is nephew T doing with his bird keeping? and cracking to hear he's stuck at Gnasher:victory:,my aviaries are all dismantled but i just can't bring myself to get rid no matter how much she moans about it:laugh:.Who knows it might be needed again one day eh :thumbs:

It's my first attempt trying natives lads. I split my big flite into 4 rough looking 2x6x5 I know it's rough as I used some old voting signs last minute job. Birds seam happy I'm running 3 pairs goldies and pair bullys.. I added this thinking it mite make em more calm and feel bit safer.... Do yous think this good or bad in sense could make em skittish cheers del....... IV just flaps made up quick as not to Evan enter there space

That is pleasing to hear and he was a proper gent when he visited and chose what he needed rather than what he could have had and that showed something about the man :thumbs:,i lost my phone book with his number in and funny as it might sound when i drive to Portsmouth to see my mum i go past on the motorway W.A. where he lives and think of him and how he's doing with the birds,W.A. was a place i lived as a kid before the motorway was built so i do notice the place anyway as such and not just a odd thinker about members of your family :laugh:..
