I am wanting some advice on something I have been considering for a fair while!
We have four budgies- Kirby, Kiwi, Bluebell & Sunny. They currently live in a large flight cage in our second lounge room.
We are soon moving house & we wonít have as much room to have them & my cockatiel inside.
We will only have the one living room & my husband doesnít really want them in there.
In the new house there is an undercover veranda so there is the possibility of keeping them in their current cage & just putting them on the veranda.
My other idea is to actually buy a shed type aviary.
I used to have so much time for my budgies but I now work full time & we have a baby on the way to think about so Iím thinking outside is best as they do make quite a mess inside.
Only one of my original budgies (Kirby) is still tame but she prefers the other birds company too so I donít feel she will miss my company.
Being on the veranda they would still get some attention from us but Iím worried itís not safe enough with potential cats or other animals getting into the yard.
My concern with an aviary is most of them come with one door you open to put food etc in and my budgie Kirby will try to come straight to me & is used to being able to fly out of the cage if she wants.
Also Iím worried about when it gets hot how they will cope! Theyíve never been spoilt with aircon inside but still living inside is cooler than out. Same with how they will cope with the cold.
This is the kind of aviary I was thinking of- got this pic off google.
Any advice if youíve transitioned your birds from inside to out? Any suggestions where to buy good quality aviaries?
As for my cockatiel she is hand raised so we are really unsure at this point what to do as she would be unhappy by herself outside but my husband is concerned about how dusty she is.
Also how do you hang toys/perches in aviaries?!
Feel free to show me photos of your aviaries or outdoor set ups! Would be much appreciated!!
