Hi all,

Where can I purchase or find out how to build a large oversize aviary.

Large enough to have a pond and walk in and have a pond type area.

Preferable a zoo type aviary positionable to have lawn type chairs or something of that sort .

BirdChannel has a couple of articles on building outdoor, safe aviaries.

If you plan on having large parrots you might be able to get away with a pond... however if you keep small birds or parrots, a large pond could potentially be dangerous... unless you can screen the top of the pond so that the birds can't drown.

There's a book called "How to build every thing for your birds, from aviaries to nestboxes, and it has super cool designs to build aviaries.

where are earth can I find a bird bath that fits into the large parrot cage feed door opening? the regular ones aren't wide enough I have 3 of them, all new- not being used. I've looked everywhere, need them big enough for cockatiels. I'd rather have the kind that attaches than just a bowl at the bottom. anyone know or have an idea? hope I put this in the right place and didn't step on someone.

This isn't exactly what you are looking for, but it could be attached to the cage feed door. I hope this link is of some help to you: http://www.drsfostersmith.com/product/prod_display.cfm?pcatid=16514

Im dreaming of one as well....I've been thinking of trying to build a "dog pen". But I'm afraid of Bugs getting on My birds from the outside....I know Im weird, but I really dont want them affected by the outside world...But they LOVE outside.

What to do, any advise?

Cockatiels usually prefer being sprayed vs taking an actual bath. Or simply put, they prefer "showers" over bathes!


One could always double screen an aviary, then put a fine mesh netting on the outter wire to keep bugs out. It would be more expensive to do, but the double wire would give an extra barrier to other predators, such as raccoons and birds of prey.

A pond sounds pretty but i personally would not want one because i would not want it to be grounds for mosquito breeding, just to be aware of the west nile virus.... I'd stick with a pretty bird bath that way you can dump the water out near dusk. My one of my friends has used a bird bath for years and his parrots love it.
