Hey,

Haven't been on much since the death of my parrotlet. Some might remember that I got him before the aviary was actually finished because he was too good an opportunity to miss.

Well, it's been finished for a little while now but still empty although I'm hoping this will change in the coming week.

Here it is empty:


and kitted out with block and rope ladder, balls and bell toy, leather chew toy, rope rings and blocks, natural vine rings, a block/ball/rope swing, a hideaway, 5 natural wood branches of different sizes, 1 latex perch, 1 rope perch and 1 twister perch (between food bowls out of shot).

Afraid not, when I priced up the materials and taking into account that I wasn't sure how it would turn out it was better to let someone build it that does it for a living. It cost me £75 including delivery and is 6' tall x 3' wide x 4' long.

The toys and perches etc I bought from here: http://scarlettsparrotessentials.co.uk/

It looks great! What type of bird or birds are you considering at this point?

Thanks :)

I'm looking at either lovebirds or cockatiels but swaying more towards lovebirds. I'm still keeping my eye out for another parrotlet though as I'd prefer one of those.

I posted a question in general about whether irons are safe to use, if you haven't looked could you take a look?

I've arranged to go and see some lovebirds tomorrow. Found a lady 5 mins down the road selling 4 - 2 blue and 2 peach faced.

Are the blue ones a blue mutation of the peach faced or are they the blue masked?

All peach faced mutations are beautiful birds, but I absolutely love the blue masked lovebirds. I really want to see a violet masked lovebird in person. I never have, though.

I've only just seen this thread as I've been going back abit since nobody has posted for a while. That's a great aviary! Do you just have it standing on the floor or do you use newspaper etc? It's really cool. :thumbsup:

It's really cool, where did you get your panels from? Or did you make them yourself?

Bobioden - this is what I got :D http://www.talkparrots.com/showthread.php?t=1210

I didn't make the panels. When I priced the materials up and factored in that I'm no expert so it might look a bit rough and ready, I decided it would be better to have someone who does it for a living make them.

This guy on ebay http://myworld.ebay.co.uk/wolfie9/ made and delivered them for £75 inclusive and provided the screws. He's based in Bilston.
