Thanks so much everyone! It's going swimmingly today. Normally I'd cover up their cage so we can get a little extra sleep in the mornings. My oldest son gets up and gets the Conures all worked up simply by turning on the TV (he's an early riser). I can't cover this new cage but I don't have to! They've been almost completely screech free, they are so content. I hope it lasts lol

! It looks amazing and you have so many places to hang toys, treats, etc. That's usually one of the problems: not knowing were to attach all the various things.
Are those bay leafs your conures are munching on?
Out other aviaries have solid metal roofing and sides which is so darn annoying when you want to hang things. I have those sticky hooks on the Budgie's aviaries but they don't hold much in the way of weight. This is perfect though, unlimited places to hang anything and everything
Yes Bay leaves! It's winter here so green branches are limited. South American parrots don't tolerate Eucalyptus very well so they get Bay and Bottlebrush branches
They've been having a blast picking all the flower buds off

A couple ideas for the bottom instead of that tarp...
clear visqueen rolled plastic(comes in different thicknesses called mil)
clear thin plexiglass panels around the bottom
Thanks a bunch!
I actually spent a lot of time researching clear plastic and plexi when I was trying to cover in the Budgie aviary for winter. I ended up using that rolled plastic and it's fantastic but the problem is that, unlike a tarp, it doesn't come wide enough to cover the whole area, I'd have to use 2 strips, layered. Which is fine but will make it hard to move the cage around without them moving apart and I'm not sure how I could attach them permanently?
The only plexiglass I could find here is really expensive even for the thinner stuff, $50 a sheet and I'd need about 10 sheets to go all the way around, making it cost almost as much as the aviary itself
I really like how the tarp is all one piece like a diaper LOL it's just not very nice to look at...

Bird nerd, I love it
I ordered it online. Here's an American site that sells them https://www.birdcagesgalore.com/outdo...or_Aviary.html
I paid a lot less though, might be a cheaper option out there. It's funny how one site will sell the exact same item for 3 times the price as another sometimes.
I would love to see one full of Budgies! Problem is the bar spacing on it is almost too big even for Conures. Also no one would ever be able to hear the TV with that many Budgies in the living room
It's fun to dream though
It's funny how if you have a huge cage for your birds in the middle of your house you're nuts but it's okay to let dogs and cats sleep in your bed and share the bathroom with you!
