    My OH built this for me this year and it has 3 pairs of canaries in it. I put nest boxes in it this year and one pair bred 2 broods but managed to harrass all the other pairs as they tried to raise chicks. We only ended up with 2 surviving babies at all.

    ..........but if I have more chicks I wouldn't know what to do with them:) I wouldn't want them interbreeding but I wouldn't want them to go to a life in a cage after having the freedom of an aviary.

    We are hoping to move house in a few months time and I'm hoping that whoever buys here wants to adopt an aviary and some canaries as well;)
