Breeding - Aviaries
Obviously aviaries should be situated in such a way in the garden to provide the most attractive setting where birds can be seen easily from the house. Most pleasure can be derived from this form of housing. It does not mean that the best breeding results can be obtained by this type of exposed aviary. Aviaries situated under trees have two disadvantages:-
1 Birds roosting in the trees
will deposit droppings into the aviaries and create a greater chance of
2 During stormy conditions branches may break off and cause damage to the aviaries.
Also you must consider the piping in of electricity and running water. It may be necessary to provide artificial lighting during the winter or some form of heating particularly under nest boxes where parrots may have laid eggs out of season. If water has to be carried any distance, it becomes extremely hard work and nauseating after a period of time. It can also affect the overall cleanliness of drinking water and bathing water if it is not readily available. Aviaries scattered around the garden look more attractive than those in blocks, but remember the farther apart aviaries are the longer it will take to feed and water the birds each day.
