Budgie Breeding Room Setup

Here are a few shots of the new small breeding room and the old breeding room setup. Just to show what can be done on a limited budget.

The Aviary Room is made up of panels of welded wire and wood. The welded wire is 1″ by 1/2 ” mounted on 2″x2″ wood. I stretch the wire and use a pneumatic crown stapler to staple the wire onto the wood. Panels are cross braced at the corners and most have a middle brace. I buy the wire in sections of 30″, 4 ‘, and 6’.¬† They are all cut to 6′ tall. These are the size that I am able to handle. The panels are screwed together with deck screws and can be unscrewed and moved into different configurations. I used the 30″ panels for the door panels originally. Because I am shorter, I make the doorways 5′ tall and 2′ wide¬† inside of a 30″ panel. The doors have return springs and open to the inside of each aviary. There is a safety area. Also, because this is a converted garage and I leave the door open for air (one piece swing up) I built a screen panel that is 9′ wide and 7′ tall to fit over the door when open. Allows plenty of fresh air and if a bird gets past the safety or out of the breeding room, they cannot escape to the great outdoors.
