About Top 10 Best Bird Aviaries

A colorful parrot perches in an outdoor aviaryEnclosures for certain species, like flight or parrot cages, can certainly offer some animals greater freedom than a smaller indoor shelter. However, an outdoor aviary can offer more advantages than even the roomiest indoor birdcage.

Aviaries are large enclosures that give birds the room to fly and move around comfortably while they stay protected from other animals. Bird owners can use an aviary as an upscale chicken coop or an exercise area for otherwise inside pets. Many people place aviaries outdoors because of their size, but there are a large variety of designs made for indoor use as well.

What Species Would Enjoy an Outdoor Bird Aviary?

Many species love the freedom that comes from aviaries. While large birds like parrots and cockatiels will obviously enjoy a larger enclosure, smaller birds can also find joy in such a space; lovebirds, lorikeets, budgies, and finches all thrive in aviaries. Doves and pigeons also do well in exterior aviaries.


Owners should install proper insulation and heating devices if the birds will be outside during colder months. This step is especially important for animals that come from tropical climates. During warmer times, shade is an important consideration. After all, an aviary's occupants will need a reprieve from the summer heat.

Construction Materials

Quality aviaries of nearly any material are safe for indoor use. Exterior ones, however, must be durable enough to withstand the weather and any potential predators. A predator can be a large bird like a hawk or even a small animal like a pet cat.


The structure of the enclosure should be a durable wood or heavy-duty metal.


Wooden Varieties: Owners who choose wooden varieties must make sure that their pets do not chip off and ingest splinters. Additionally, these enclosures must be free of harmful materials, like easily chipped paint.


Metal Varieties: Wrought iron is useful because it is decorative as well as corrosion-resistant, but it does often come at a higher price. Stainless steel is a popular alternative because it is also safe against most corrosion and incredibly strong.

Bar Spacing and Alignment

Horizontal or vertical bars on bird cages offer enough protection inside. For outdoor use, however, enclosures require a strong metal mesh. Mesh enables birds to have a clear view of their surroundings while also protecting them from predators small and large. A heavy-duty stainless-steel mesh also prevents large birds like parrots from cutting through with their beaks. For smaller pets, owners should make sure their animals cannot escape through too-big spaces in said mesh.

Size

Size depends on the number and species of birds in the shelter. Even a small animal needs a cage with enough space for her to spread her wings. Cages for small birds should have at two feet of height and two feet of width and depth. Bird cages for large animals will need at least five feet of height and four or more feet of depth. Pet parents should add at least half as much of these dimensions to the aviary for each added occupant. For example, an aviary for two small birds should be about three feet in width and depth.

How to Turn Aviaries into Chicken Coops

Aviaries to chicken coops? It is possible, and only takes a few simple additions. Interested individuals can do this by creating a fully enclosed and insulated section with perches and boxes. They should then set up shop where it is possible to use heat lamps or other heating devices in chilly weather. Most people install aviaries on a concrete slab for easier cleaning; however, placing the shelter on bare ground or grass allows chickens to walk and graze during the day.

Final Thoughts

Aviaries give birds a place to spread their wings and get a little exercise. These cages make it easier for owners to add enriching items to keep the pets entertained. Exterior bird cages allow their occupants to be in a natural environment with the benefits of fresh air and sunlight. An aviary is a shelter worth the investment for anyone that wants to keep a happy healthy bird.
