I've been promising and writing myself sticky notes to remember to post this but tonight I have finally gotten around to it.
About a month ago we decided to overhaul our entertainment center into a bird cage, because well we watch them more than the television anyhow so it seemed well suited.

We...and when I say we I mean my ever so talented hubby...created a removable front that we can take off for play time.


It is two feet deep and three feet tall and just a hair over three feet wide.


The front piece also has a hinged door if we need to just reach in and out instead of taking the entire front off.


And the big picture:


There is a window on the backside that way they can watch the sunrise and the outdoor birds but the blinds can be closed for nap time. We plan to put a dowel rod on the front of the "cage" to hang a curtain from but haven't gotten around to it yet!

LOOOOOOOOOKING good...one suggestion...in pic two i see the inside mesh at the top should have a "finishing strip" so the cut edges of the mesh are not left exposed even tho' they maybe of a soft type of mesh it would be best to add a finishing strip there

Oh woow!!! That's awesome proto!!! Give your hubby a pat on the back LOL Great job! Then send him my way to build one for us. haha

Orkney n Gorse are your 2 new English aren't they? I see in pics they are right side by side. Do they tend to stick close to each other?

Thank you illusive I told hubby your suggestion and we'll go down this week's end to see what we can't find.
Orkney and Deryn are the two English ones that are the newest, we just started working them into the fold with the others more and it's funny that I didn't even notice Gorse was sitting next to Orkney there. Orkney is much more outgoing, and seems willing to interact with any of the others. Deryn though, spends much of his time sulking alone when we take him and Orkney out of their cage. In their own cage (as we still have the primarily separated at this time but are introducing them at playtime), Deryn and Orkney are playful with one another, out of the cage, Deryn wants nothing to do with any bird or us.
Gorse and Nero have started bonding a lot and the two of them fly all over the house the second we open the cage up. They both are mischievous devils and like to fly to the highest curtain rod and laugh down on me when I tell them to come so they can go back to the cage.

ahhh ok.
Must be fun to watch the dynamics between them all and see the different personalities. I just love your flock proto..they're all so different from one another and beautiful in their own unique ways.
