A number of people choose to keep aviary birds and having a bird aviary can be an excellent hobby whether it is inside or outside. Some pet birds are better suited to a bird aviary than others because they get on better with other birds or are smaller and therefore don’t require as much space.

Keeping Aviary Birds
- The first thing that is important to state is that your bird aviary needs to be large enough for the pet birds you intend to keep in there. It is for this reason why a lot of people have a bird aviary of finches or small parakeets because they don’t require the same amount of space as something like large macaws will. Macaws can make excellent aviary birds but you will need a large bird aviary. You can search for a wide range of pet birds for sale here on Bird Trader.
- Finches are very common as aviary birds as they will coexist with other finches very happily and they also sing a lot. The small size of finches makes them good as aviary birds and canaries, zebra and society finches will live together happily. Canaries however require a much smaller diet than other finches.
- Budgies and other small parakeets can make up an excellent bird aviary but care must be taken to match pet birds in terms of size and temperament as squabbles may be common and mismatched pet birds could kill each other. Generally, the same species of parakeet kept together as aviary birds should be ok.
- A lot of people choose to keep pigeons and doves as aviary birds and these also make excellent pet birds. One of the advantages of pigeons as pet birds in particular is that they will naturally return to bird aviary once they consider it home. A bird aviary for these birds will need to be fairly big and have space on the ground for the aviary birds to forage.
