Re: New England hazards?

Welcome to you and Chicken! Wish I had expert advice, but I haven't tackled an outdoor aviary! Hopefully members with knowledge will share!

A few items of potential concern: Is the outside aviary Chicken's permanent residence, or just during temperate times of the year? Ensure you use a quality mesh to keep her safe. Cockatoos are voracious chewers, so the gage must be sufficient and not galvanized, ie coated with toxic metals.

If the aviary is built around a tree, can you prevent her from chewing wood strategically to make an escape exit? They are also extreme escape artists, you'll need to make the exits foolproof and well guarded.
