The 1st aviary I am getting was given to my friend from someone that she knows who lives just around the corner, but my friend has too many aviaries as it is in her backyard, so she said if I can find a way to pick it up, I can have it for free.
My friends place is only about 15-20 mins away, not far at all. The aviary is 1.6 x 1.6 metres and approx. 1.7 metres high.
I thought that was a bonus until she messaged me asking me about ANOTHER aviary..
The 2nd aviary I am getting is a suspended aviary, which I am buying from her (my friend), it is pretty big, I have seen it, and she is selling it to me pretty cheap (she paid $100 for it and it is only a few months old). She said at first to make an offer, but I didnít know how much to offer, so she just gave me a price and I said yes. She said I could pick it up at the same time as I pick up the 1st aviary.
She messaged me again saying she is going to include a breeding pair of Cockatiels in with the suspended aviary too!!
The female is a pearl pied, and the male is mostly cream with some pale yellow patches on him. So they will be my 2 new additions, and they will be going into the suspended aviary. (they are currently in an aviary together)
I asked my mumís boyfriend if he would help me out to go and pick up 2 aviaries and a pair of Cockatiels (I don't drive) this weekend, and he said YES! We are hiring a ute, and my mumís boyfriend is going to drive it there and back and I will pay for the hire and etc.
This morning my mum rang up and organized everything ó my mumís boyfriend and I are picking the ute up at 10:00am on Saturday, this weekend!
Once we have picked the ute up, at about 10:30am we are going to go and pick up the 2 aviaries and the pair of Cockatiels.
It is going to be a long and busy day, but I can't wait.
I will post photos once the aviaries are up and the 2 new additions are settled into their suspended aviary. I donít know who is going to be going in the 1st aviary yet.
