Aviary

I am hoping someone can help me. I have a Greenwing and a B&G macaw among many other birds but I am looking at getting a walk in aviary for the macaws. I have been looking at the Wingz Avian Products aviaries but they don't have very good pictures on their site so it is difficult to see how well constructed they are. I am also thinking about getting the A&E walk in aviary.
So long story short, has anyone here used/seen either of these and have an opinion on which may be better or if there is a different type all together that would work better.
I am looking at 4'W x 4'D x 7'H or 4'W x 6'D x 7'H. I appreciate any help you can all give me with this. It is a lot of money to spend and I don't want to get anything that I will regret. Thank you all.

Re: Aviary

Okay, the reason the wingz flights are so cheap is because they are made of galvanized metal! It's my understanding that galvanized metal is a huge no-no because galvanized metal is toxic to parrots. If they chew on it, they get zinc poisoning... so, potentially fatal mistake. I don't know why they are marketing these to parrot owners, frankly. I wouldn't trust it.


Centurian has some nice ones as well... Those I've seen and they are good quality.

Re: Aviary

Thank you for the response. They use GAW wire which is better than straight galvanized. I know stainless is the best way to go or powder coated but realistically GAW is a much more affordable way to go. I have looked at Centurion also but I had heard that they were made in China and the quality wasn't as good as A&E.
