Outdoor birds aviary can easily be made on your own if you follow simple guidelines. First of all you must choose the material the outdoor aviary will be made from. A wooden carcass is a great idea for a handmade aviary since it is the easiest to make. Make appropriate measurements, purchase the best quality wood and get to work. Wooden carcasses are also a good idea, since no welding will be required. They can be a good start for those who never tried building something that complicated before.
Small outdoor bird aviary can be built in a very short time. Using steel bars and mesh is a great idea for the smaller aviary, since such cages have a spacious feel to them. At the same time welding work is cut to a minimum. A more complicated small aviary can be made of wood and glass. Such aviaries are usually built to contain the heat. In the cold climate conditions, mesh aviaries can be used only in the summer. In the winter time open air aviaries don’t provide satisfactory living conditions for many types of birds. Accordingly wooden and glass aviary must be built. Make sure that if you aviary is made of wood, it still has enough glass to provide satisfactory lighting conditions for the birds in the winter time. Dark aviaries are not good for any birds’ health.
Outdoor heated bird aviary is a great idea for the cold winter season. Usually in order to heat up a bird aviary a special type of heater is required. While choosing a heater for your outdoor aviary, make sure that it is has a climate control. Otherwise the birds might get too much heat, which for some of them can be deadly. Heaters for bird aviaries can be found in specialty stores. However, regular heaters will suit them too, as long as they are safe.
