Indoor Aviary - Ideas And Suggestions Please
Posted 30 September 2012 - 07:20 PM
Am planning to build an indoor aviary/bigger enclosure for my blue quaker Meeko.Somewhere he can have more space than his cage, and be safe and secure, while we are out of the house.
I have an idea in my head, but need some help. I have looked at some untreated Softwood shelving in Ikea (the one that is open from all sides, can used in Utility rooms etc) The wood is untreated and non-pressurised (as per Ikea) softwood. So I was thinking of getting 2 or 3 of these (They are about 6 ft high, 3 ft wide, 2 ft deep), leave the top and bottom shelf (the shelf have slats, but not big enough for a quaker to fly out), and remove the middle shelves. bolt them together, Lay plastic runner at the bottom, put an small apple tree in a pot, hang various perches and toys etc. The only thing I'm stumped with is what to surround the enclosure with. Cant used galvanized wire. I was thinking of some stop of plastic netting, but not sure which kind will work (and should definitely be breathable. If it's some sort of flexible netting, then I can simply nail 3 sides, and have 1 side with clips so can be opened and closed
Any ideas/suggestion/critique would be highly appreciated
