Here is a photo of Basement Aviary #4 and B Aviary #3. The white aviary (#3) is inside the larger aviary (#4) simply because it was there first and then the larger one was built after. I had planned on building a similar aviary and placing it beside the white one. However, friends suggested a much better way which was to section a portion of the room off and make the whole thing an aviary. This proved to be simpler and a better use of space. I am always tempted to remove the white aviary #3 altogether and make one large aviary. The only reason I hold off is because two aviaries allows me to have separate groups of finches inside separating the bloodlines.
Aviary #3 is approximately 8 ft x 4 ft x 6 ft. Inside reside a pair each of Peters Twinspots, Lady Gouldians, Orange Cheek waxbills, Bicheno Owl Finches, Societies and Button Quail.
Aviary #4 is approximately 10 ft x 10 ft x 8 ft. The fact that Aviary #3 is inside takes away 8 ft x 4 ft of the back left corner, making the aviary "L" shaped. Inside reside a pair each of Peters Twinspots, Lady Gouldians (2 Pair), Orange Cheed waxbills, Bicheno Owl Finches, Societies, European Goldfinches and Forbes Parrot Finches.
Here is a photo of a small Custom Built Furniture Quality aviary. It is appoximately 2 ft x 2 ft x 3 ft. It is large enough for 2 or 3 pair of compatible birds for viewing. If breeding is desired, only one pair would be housed.
I have a larger version of this same aviary in the living room which is 6 ft x 3 ft x 6 ft, which houses some non-breeding birds. I call it my geriatric aviary. Currently it has one gould, a pair each of lavendars, St. Helenas, canaries, bb fire finches, a lone common fire finch male, and a pair of Button Quail.
The basement birdroom also includes Aviary #1 and #2. We have not taken any pictures of them as of yet. They are each 5 ft x 4 ft x 6 ft.
Aviary #1 houses a pair each of Lady Goudians, Forbes Parrot finches, Bicheno Owl Finches, Peters Twinspots, Orange Cheek waxbills and Button Quail.
Aviary #2 houses a pair each of Lady Goudians, Bicheno Owl Finches, Peters Twinspots, Orange Cheek waxbills, and a lone female common fire finch.
Here are a few views of my Kitchen Aviary.
