If you are thinking about keeping your birds outside or breeding some birds, you should consider a bird cage aviary. Aviaries come in all shapes and sizes and can even be built on your own. However, don’t start on building the aviary if you are not sure you have enough skills to build a large structure without making a mistake. Look for some plans on the Internet to get an idea what such an aviary should look like. Perhaps you will need professional advice. Wooden and stainless steel aviaries differ in their function, so study the materials carefully before starting the job.
Breeding bird cages and aviaries often differ from the regular ones. There are many additional accessories which should be purchased for the breeding process. The most important thing is to buy the proper boxes for the birds to lay eggs. Birds can be very picky about choosing a place to lay their eggs. So, if your goal is to breed as many as possible, take care of the proper conditions for the birds. Boxes should be filled with soft materials such as sawdust and plaster in order for the eggs to be warm and make the egg sitting and hatching process easier.
If you are breeding just two pet birds, you don’t have to go for a special cage. You can just buy a large bird cage for these purposes. However, you must read how birds behave after breeding. Some of them need their own special place in a cage and will not be happy with a neighbor. If such is the case, you can go for double cages. Read all you can about the breeding process in order to arrange everything timely and avoid mistakes which can cause real problems for the birds health. Most of the birds start breeding in the spring, so there is no reason to bother with the breeding accessories before that time.
