A little back story, my 2 Conures were destroying the house and putting their own health in danger when I couldn't get them to stop chewing the dry wall, paint and door frames. My only choice was to get them into an aviary but their bond with me combined with the noise means they can't be outside. I decided to find them an indoor aviary but wanted them to remain in the living area of our house so they still would get all the attention they need. The end result? A massive cage in my living room.

Personally.. I love it. They are SO happy! There's so much room for them to fly around and so many toys, and things to do now. I don't have to stress anymore that I can't let them out because I don't have time to baby sit the walls/doors and they don't have to be cooped up all day. Visitors to our house will probably think I'm nuts but with the aviary in the front courtyard and the aviary in the back, they probably already would.

Figuring out how to keep the floor clean has been a challenge. Plain plastic sheeting would get messy, paper would slip around too much and isn't absorbent enough for human visitors walking around inside. I went with pine shavings for now since I had a ton on hand. It clings to clothing, which is a pain so socks and slippers off before we can go in. It is really easy to keep clean though.

I used a tarp I had in the shed to keep it all in, if I can find something more aesthetically pleasing in the future then I'll change it but for now, it's functional and that's a start. I think I'll just try to change it for a black one, once it gets messy enough to need a change.












A short video, mostly of Arra unhappy I brought that evil camera thing into her lair.

I'm sure glad my babies are happy now

That's an awesome new home for Kree and Arra!
I'm glad you managed to find a solution for the chewing problem and now everyone (bird included) is happy!

Wow! Every bird lover's dream (and bird, of course) come true ! 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?
