We have had many requests for information on building aviaries and have found some useful information from several sources that should help anyone who is planning on building an aviary for their birds or want to make improvements to the one they have. Some of the documents have the same or similar information, but you should read them all as some were too large to edit out duplicate info. We have not found a step by step construction plan yet, but with all the pictures, our birdroom description, and the other articles, there should be no other outstanding questions for building your own with all the tips and pointers.
    This site has info on building your own aviary with samples of construction and also sells kit form aviaries.
