Simple Mini Aviaries for Shamas

Today while driving around town, decided to experiment a little on mini aviaries for Shamas. Drop by a hardware store and purchased a role of wire mesh that has a rubber coating. The galvanised ones are badly manufactured nowadays.

Do not know how many of such aviaries I can construct with one role. So far 12 feet used up to make one that is 3 feet high, 2 feet wide and 2 feet deep.

Yet to construct the door.... will probably make it to normal Shama cage height so that the birds can be easily transfered to and from such cages. Took roughly about 3 hours from cutting to bending the wires...... hmmmmm better keep my day job :-D

Plan to construct another two more to keep the females borrowed from a friend.

Advantage of such contraptions are : Lightweight - easy to carry around, relocate etc. Strong - compared to bamboo or wood, it is much stronger weight for weight. Maintenance - easy maintenance as seen in the final pic which incidently housed 3 females that belongs to a friend.

- Time you enjoy wasting wasn't wasted -
