For bird breeding or keep whole groups of birds you can only use a big aviary. When you have a garden you can buy a big outdoor bird cage or build your own so the birds have enough space to fly around. You can buy everything you need for a species-appropriate husbandry at jago24.co.uk online shop.
Aviaries – the perfect home for feathered inhabitants
Make sure that the birds can fly freely in an aviary. If you keep birds like parrots or large parakeets, for example, you will need a larger aviary. In this case, the aviary can easily occupy a whole wall of a room. Smaller parakeets, canaries and finches need less space and aviaries which cover only parts of the wall are sufficient. They can be hung up like a wall-cupboard or be placed on the floor. In any case, make sure they are properly secured, which means that it has to be lockable amongst other things. It would be best to use a wired glass pane for the front part so that sand, dust and feather cannot get through the bars into the living room. The wire inside the glass ensures that the bird does not fly against the pane. If you want to keep birds near-natural in an aviary, you have to use appropriate quality equipment.

In this way you keep your bird appropriate to its species
Provide the aviary with suitable plants, which should be non-poisonous because birds usually gnaw at anything. Sturdy sitting rods and natural branches or roots offer varied places for your bird to sit. If you put plants into the aviary, make sure that they have enough light. With the help of plant lights inside the aviary you can create a pleasant and growth-promoting lighting. Moreover, you can watch your birds much easier. Robust house plants create a natural environment and are voluntarily used as sitting or climbing facility by the birds. Of course, there has to be constant fresh air supply. Aeration elements are usually attached to the sides of the aviary, just like feeding and drinking facilities. Special treats are put into suitable bowls on the floor. Use quality bird sand and provide a bathing area. Remember that the hygiene in an aviary is decisive for the health of your birds. Dirty sand has to be removed regularly. Sitting rods should be cleaned on a regular basis and the water in the drinking facility and in the pool should be removed daily. Your birds will thank you with vividness and good health. When it comes to feed follow the advice of a specialist. You veterinary surgeon can tell you how much fruit, vegetables or nibble sticks you should feed your birds. The basic feed is standard bird feed, which is available for the various types of birds.
The proper installation of aviaries in confined spaces
The perfect aviary for smaller birds like budgies, finches and canaries should be as wide as possible so that the birds can fly about. Furthermore, the aviary should be at least one meter high and deep. If you keep parrots, it is advisable to use so-called tower aviaries. Parrots love to sit at a dizzy height, especially when there are humans with them in the room. This increases their feeling of security. You should definitely make sure that it is possible to attach partitions in case one bird has to be separated from the others for some reason.
If you choose an aviary with bars, make sure that it meets the following requirements:
The bars should run vertically and have some horizontal elements where sitting rods and toys can be attached. Healthy birds can easily climb up vertical bars.
Make sure that the material does not show welds. Birds could gnaw at them and swallow pieces of metal.
The bars should be free of heavy metal. Do not use galvanised bars.
The bars should be black if possible. Shiny or bright bars could dazzle the birds. Thanks to black bars the birds have a good view of their environment as they are used to it from the open countryside.
You should definitely have removable elements at the floor so that you can clean the aviary without difficulties. Thus you can replace the sand outside the aviary and disturb the birds' daily routine as little as possible. Discover the wide range of equipment for aviaries of all kinds on jago24.co.uk.

Birdcages: The size is decisive
Before you get yourself a dog or a cat, you should think about how to accommodate and care for it. The same applies for birds. Although birds are smaller and more wieldy than our four-legged friends, there are a few things you have to take into consideration. Dogs cannot be kept according to their species in a small flat because they need exercise and movement. Birds do not need to go walkies; however, they also need room to move about or rather to fly around. Your four walls will become the bird's new domain because it should not leave the house. And this is what the bird wants to scout out. If the birds spends all day in the birdcage, it will suffer under that. Furthermore, birds are very sociable animals. If you keep only a parrot or only one parakeet, you will take away the possibility of communicating with other birds. Birds' reactions to loneliness are brutal: They will cry for two, pluck out their feathers and maybe also get sick. A lonely bird will see you as its partner, demand your attention and be jealous of visitors and partners. If you keep at least two birds, you will avoid these problems. However, in this case it is very important to choose an appropriate cage so that each of your animals feels comfortable. Take into consideration that a cage is not only about sleeping and feeding. Under certain circumstances, e.g. when you are sick, renovate the flat or go on holiday, the birds might spend several days in their cage. Therefore, it should not be too small. Put up the cage in such a way that the bird can sit on eye-level or even a little higher with the humans. This is how it is the case in the open countryside. From up there the birds have a good view and can quickly fly away when danger occurs. If they have to live in a small flat with all other inhabitants much larger than they are, they are threatened and intimidated. They will react with aggression, which might end painfully especially with parrots' large beaks. Therefore, the birds should be on eye-level with humans; they will feel equal and respected and will respect you in return. Parrots cages in particular are usually very large and high. It is no problem to provide a rod up high. The cage should be protected from draught and be put up with one side against the wall. If the cage can be watched from all sides, the birds will feel that they are being dogged and threatened. Birds also appreciate it to retreat into their shells therefore it is better to put the cage against a wall. This wall should be washable. If it is not possible to put the cage directly against a wall, you can also cover one side with a chipboard or something like that.
Parrots need special love and care
If you only have little time, you should definitely keep two birds. If there is just one bird, it will demand even more attention and care to feel comfortable. Parrot cages should be at least as large as to offer room for two poles in different heights. The bird should be able to easily spread its wings. Cages for birds with long tail feathers should offer enough space for those. Some birds are not able to spend many hours in a cage. Parrots, for example, are virtually paralysed if they cannot fly whenever they want to. A parrot needs a cage with horizontal rods so that it can climb around and be active.
