ADVICE FOR BEGINNERS ON KEEPING australian finches.

TO START OFF.

Firstly you will have to choose if you are going to buy a ready made bird/room and avairy depending on the space you have.
Or if you already have a shed or out-building that you could convert to a bird/room and avairy.
Or make your own design which will be much cheaper.
Then you have to decide were it will be situated if you want to see your birds then put it view of your house for your own benefit as well as for security.
Then decide what sort of birds you want to keep i.e. finches or parrakeets or parrots.
Depending on what you are going to keep you can then design the layout of the inside if you want cages to breed in or just flights inside and out weather you will require heating depending on what sort of species you are going to keep.

OUTDOOR AVAIRIES.
If you are going to keep finches it is always nice to plant your outside avairy with various bushes and fast growing climbing plants that will make it private and more natural for your birds but be careful as to what plants you put in as some can be poisonous to your birds.
I will put a page later on the various plants you can use quite safely. Here are just a few to get you started honeysuckle,mile a minute, or russian vine but this grows very fast and can take over quite quickly if not kept a close eye on. conifirs are good as the birds like to build there own nests inside them.
