For the roof we have used a hard wearing, phenolic-coated, resin board meaning the roof is entirely weather proof, no leaks, resulting in a warm and dry house. The floor is also made of this solid, smooth board and is fully removable therefore acting as a dirt tray, which means thorough cleaning is incredibly easy.
The 4-bird Aviary has an internal nest box with two perches on which you can expect to comfortably seat 4 average birds or 6 Bantams. Above the nestbox is what we call an 'anti-perch (poop) shelf' which is designed to prevent the birds roosting in, or perching above, the nest boxes.
The spacious run gives the hens plenty of room to roam and even has the unique characteristics of an outside 'veranda' of day-perches, perfect for enjoying that afternoon nap. For even more roaming room we offer add-on 3ft extension runs.
Extra features can be added to make protection from the elements all the more complete, which is often necessary with our more delicate girls. A polycarbonate roof can be added to the top of the run, providing shelter without reducing light.
A timber skirting can be fitted to the run to give ground level refuge and prevent any Marilyn Monroe moments for your girl's skirts, as well as being perfect to retain a woodchip ground covering.
To add an Automatic Door Opener to the Aviary then just view Automatic External Door Openers and if ordered at the same time as the house then we will fit it for you. The door openers will sit outside the house section itself, inside the run, and directly above the pop-hole door. If ordering to retro-fit then you would only need the opener unit i.e. you do not need a lightweight door or any extra cord, or pulleys.
