before and during the construction of the bird aviary. Bird aviary plans are free
Heating for your birds is easy with the pet heater displayed on this web site.
The small heater is weather proof and safe for warming your bird aviary.
CONTROLLING RODENTS AROUND YOUR AVIARYAviaries situated outside will attract rodents and other unwanted pests. Maintaining hygiene in the aviary
and easy access to rodent holes must be considered before construction of the bird aviary plan commences.
The simplest & most effective ways of creating a clean, vermin
resistant area is elevating the bird aviary floor from the ground
ELEVATING bird aviariesElevating aviaries from ground contact reduces the nesting areas for rodents. Baiting and removal of rodent nests will be easier.
The clearance height of the bird aviary floor should have sufficient space to allow for baiting.
Poison used for baiting MUST be in an area that has no access to pets and children.
The bird aviary will be relatively light and can be supported from the ground with bricks or similar stumps. If permanent support stumps are required these should be located in areas with no under ground obstructions. Prevailing winds must be taken into account. Position the back
panel of the aviary facing into consistent wind. Location for the bird aviary must allow for your visual enjoyment of the enclosed pets.

THE AVIARY PLAN
To build the aviary we have selected the aviary base as the easiest starting point. Base measurements of the bird aviary will become the template and guide to all the measurements of the bird aviary. Building the aviary plan with measurements that originate from the base measurements of your choice ensures a quality bird aviary.
Base measurements should be square or rectangular. If you require a bird aviary plan with tapered sides the level of difficulty constructing the bird aviary will increase. Mark each panels edge with numbers from the aviary plan to simplify assembling of the bird aviary. Sandpaper will remove the numbers at the completion of the bird aviary
