Want to learn how to build a parakeet cage? Most people buy their main parakeet cages at pet stores for year-round housing, but you can build your own parakeet aviary in your back yard or in a room in your home, if you're willing to pay close attention to details.
When building parakeet cages, it's important to remember the following important details:
Practical Features to Include
When you build your aviary, make sure you create an airlock of sorts for getting the birds in and out safely. Use wooden beams or PVC pipes for structural support, then tautly secure netting, wire or mesh over beams or pipes. Secure with bird-safe wire.
Make sure you line the bottom of the aviary with wire or mesh to prevent escape or entry by unwanted intruders. Secure the aviary so it will not tip in the wind. Some common ways to secure an aviary are to use cement to secure beams or posts into the ground, or to secure the aviary to a fence or other standing structure in a room. Drape a tarp or shade cloth over part of the aviary to provide shade and protection.
Cleaning a bird cage is a lot easier and safer for your bird if you follow a regular daily and weekly cleaning routine.
