An aviary construction manual, intended for both novices and experienced breeders. Comprehensively written and professionally illustrated, with construction details, diagrams and pictures, material lists, insulating and finishing techniques, environmental concerns, and simple step by step instructions. Essentially, everything you need to know, about building everything you need, for your exotic or caged birds. Every plan and construction detail is compiled from years of hands on experience in the raising and breeding of birds. Projects range from simple houses, cages, breeding and nesting quarters ? to small, medium, large and grand scale aviaries. Many designs are based on modular construction, containing the flexibility to start small and go larger and material and costs can be calculated in advance. All designs require inexpensive, non-specialized, easy to obtain materials assembled in a straightforward manner with the minimum tools, for strong, durable housing, tailor-made for a specific breed, or modified as needed. Included also are construction plans for feeders, waterers, humidifiers, hospital quarters, shipping/carrying cages, wiring, plumbing and ventilation plans; plus ideas, construction tips and general information seldom found in other bird publications.
