What features does my bird aviary need?
We believe that choosing an Aviary should focus almost entirely on the needs of your birds, the added bonus for us if it looks good too. As a priority, I always consider access, security and space as the most important features to consider when buying or building a bird Aviary.
It is important to be able to offer your birds both space to be in direct sun and also a secure and safe space for them to shelter away as well.
How much space you have available will dictate what kind of footprint your aviary can have but additional space can be gained by maximising the height of your aviary.
When viewing or designing a wooden bird aviary consider how often and how easy you want access to the aviary to be; do you want to have full access so you gain step inside? will you be happy with several large doors opening to gain access?
If you plan on buying an aviary do you need to consider if it can be extended easily? or can you add flights on through D.I.Y? Our Hexagonal Wooden Aviary can have multiple wooden flights added in different positions for maximum functionality.
The things you need to consider might feel overwhelming but getting these things right at the planning stage will save a whole load of headaches and pennies later.
What toys and accessories should I include in my aviary
Birds are naturally active, curious and interested in their surroundings. By ensuring they have a vast array of entertaining and interesting activities within their aviary you can go a long way to encouraging their natural behaviours and keeping them happy.
There are hundreds of toys and hanging activities you can find in shops, you can also make many of them yourself. Focus on providing a range of textures, colours and materials to encourage and satisfy their natural curiosity. Twisted rope, bells, hanging pans, and swings are just a few of our suggestions. You can also provide lots of natural materials for nest building and foraging.
Where should I position my aviary?
You may be limited in the outdoor space that you have, but there are some key considerations to make before building and positioning your Aviary.
We also recommend ensuring the aviary is easily visible from your home, this allows for peace of mind and an easy way to check on them. You should aim to offer your birds both access to the sun and also shelter from fierce heat later in the day, this might mean ensuring they can access the morning sunshine before shade can take over for the later afternoon. It is worth thinking about wind and how intense this can be in your garden, if you are sheltered it may not be an issue but it should be avoided if you are working with an exposed area.
It is worth considering how preditors may view and gain access to your aviary too. If you are positioning on a hard floor you do not need to make any additional enforcements but if you are positioning the vairy on soft ground you may need to lay wire mesh or consider a skirt of rocks or slabs to prevent animals from digging under. Trees and fences can also offer predators an easy way to get up close and personal to your aviary, ideally, we recommend not positioning under trees to allow as much sunlight access as possible.

Bought for ducks 🦆
Fantastic, smooth purchase, delivery, instructions and finish
The kennel came with instructions and it was fast to erect I had to erect it on my own it took about an hour and now my dog has some were safe to stay when she is in the garden and it's realy good quality I'm just as happy as the dog lol
This is a really great add on for either a rabbit house or in my case chicken run.
Easy to put together. And adfs adecent amout of space.
Really pleased with the hutch, our rabbit is very happy in it
Well designed and rot/rip-proof over many years.
Great sturdy polytunnel frame which has withstood some very high wind speeds over the course of the two years I have owned it. No rips on the plastic as with cheaper covers I have owned. The framework is very good quality with no rusting at the joints. Click joints meant I could put it together very quickly on my own. The polytunnel tether screw pins are very good quality and work well. The door was a little more tricky to put together (at least for me.) I realised I had had it attached on upside down and back to front for almost a year, so it didn't close properly and would shake open in the wind. I changed the door position and that no longer happens. The photograph of the finished frame on this website helped me to see the error I'd made. The polytunnel is now perfect!! The solid door is a great feature. No more broken zips.
Bought this cage after reading reviews and expected it to be very hard to put together yet good value for money. I found the cage reasonable to assemble although was handy to have a second person around for some of the bits. Overall well worth the money. Thank you
Didn't even know these covers existed until a friend mentioned about them. Happy as Larry.
Good but only last 2years even treating it
Excellent service with first class delivery agent
It fixes better than old one did and the price is great and good service from start to finish
I would like to know when will you be getting the BH01 replacement cover because mine got ripped by high winds
I have bought several items from this company and cannot praise them enough. Good sound products and the service and help they provide is second to none. Highly recommend.
Great quality product at a good price.
