Hi everyone!

I've just joined as i was wondering about an aviary I'm planning to build. I have a 5year old Eclectus parrot at the moment that i've had since she was a chick, and as my shifts are now 13 hours long, she is starting to suffer a bit with loneliness, and although no substitute, i thought birds was a second best option to a human!

I had considered giving her up, but could not bear to be parted from her, and due to a medical condition she has, i would rather not have someone else look after her as she adores me and my cat and partner, as is the reverse.

So in any case we decided on an aviary to keep her company rather than introduce a new bird(s) into the house so as to prevent jealousy and so on i thought an outdoor aviary would give her entertainment. It will be by the conservatory doors she can look out of and so should be clearly visible to her.

The plans appear to be getting larger by the minute! I have been trying to research selections of birds, but to no great avail. I love the parrotlets so was thinking of going along that route. As it stands the birds i would like in there are celestials, rosa bourkes, lineolated parokeets, love birds and cockatiels and perhaps a smaller ones such as finches. I was wondering what people thought of that as a selection.

Any advice on the aviary would be greatly received,

Thanks

K
