very productive day! most of the "walls" are up. I tell our feathered family members that it will only be a few more weeks! They don't believe me, they've heard that so many times! We have had many set backs, but it seems things are finally running more smoothly. There has been so much going on here it's hard to keep up. We've been working diligently on trying to get donations to help pay for the finishing costs of this aviary and still looking. If any of you know anyone or a company or grant to help please let us know. You can e-mail [email protected]

Things are really beginning to take shape! the "walls" are going up now. We are using welded wire panels, they can't chew them, it's stronger than chain link and the small guys can't get through the openings. We didn't want to use regular walls, we wanted a less "closed in" feel to the place. I had been concerned about the flight doors, if any of the birds were sitting on top of them when we were opening or closing them, there would be a potential of them getting injured. Mike came up with the idea of using the panels on on top and angled so this can't happen. Dusty created the beams and together they have a sucessful solution. Using the wire overhead will make hanging swings and toys from the ceiling much easier as well.
Don't forget to go to our facebook page and "like" us!!!!! You can also follow us on twitter now, we're starting to get the "hang" of the social networks! We are still taking donations to help with the completion of the aviary, if you would like to help just contact us!

Well! after many years of working for it, the day is finally getting close!!!! We have a good start on the new aviary!!!!! Once it's complete all of our feathered family members will no longer live in cages. The building is all metal, insulated and will be climate controlled. They will have free flight inside and eventually outside as well. The room dividers are going up this week to keep the little ones separate from the larger parrots so no one gets hurt. The heat/ac unit has been installed on the building, but the electricity is not in yet. Hopefully that will come in the next week or two. The next step will be getting water hooked up, we plan to have an area with a sink for washing bowls and for cleaning. Then we will add the perches, swings, toys and feed/water areas. Each room will have it's own entrance from the inside as well as outside.
Then will come moving day!!!! We are very excited by this, it means a much better life for all.
We are still in need of funds to complete this project. If you would like to help, please call 850-368-6685 or e-mail [email protected]
