Yes. The frame isn't nearly as strong as I thought it would be so the enclosed part will be made of tarp instead of wood. And that is my plan for winter along with heated perches. They arrived in time to acclimate for winter. If it gets colder than anticipated I may build roosting boxes that stand alone rather than hang on the wire, since the structure isn't as strong as intended. With this aviary we are learning a lot of what not to do next time lol.

Re: Aviary Life

I was looking into those storage shed type things or chicken coop type "shacks" I guess, but I'm always concerned about materials.

Thankfully for you in NC it's not usually too bad, but with how the weather has been, who knows!

Re: Aviary Life

I'm thinking that's what I'll end up doing in my next aviary; installing a plastic/rubber pre-made shed (wood just begs to be chewed) and remove the doors.

Re: Aviary Life

Also you can often find barn metal for cheep - painted steel panels - the coating is baked on and seems to never rust. It comes in panels and all sorts of trim pieces. People here put up "pole barns" which are beam-framed structures covered with barn metal, and there is always left over metal which people sell on craigslist etc. ... cheap and durable, they won't chew it, lasts forever, cheaper than the plastic sheds.

Re: Aviary Life

Part of our issue is portability. This is our fourth home in four and a half years; I need to be able to disassemble, transport, and reassemble.

Re: Aviary Life

Ah. Barn metal is dissamble-able but heavy to transport..

Re: Aviary Life

Someone is back living inside with me, where she belongs!



I love this girl way too much.
