Cage example for Rosellas (and other birds)
« on: May 30, 2016, 10:54:58 AM »
From my anonymous Facebook friend:

I set this up specifically for my Northerns. It faces due north and has solid partitions so time will tell how it goes. Yellows and cloncurrys are presently on both ends and have both had infertile clutches this season. I personally like conventional cages more too but wouldnt be able to manage 31 flights given the additional work that would be involved cleaning. The mower on the otherhand cleans up under the flights. The birds dont care as they get used to the mower and dog under the flight.

Best breeding results - Conventional
Preference - Suspended
Why:
1.Less cleaning/maintainence
2. Cleaner and more hygenic for the birds.
3. Cooler for the birds in the hot months
4. Nest boxes easy to access from inside walkway.

Down side:
1. Birds are harder to catch
2.If the birds dislike their nest box its hard to reposition the box inside the flight space.
3.If you have an agressive cock the flight space is reduced for the hen to get away.

I have 10 conventionals & 21 suspendeds.
