Thanks! I wish I could keep Eagles in there! There is a bald eagle at the audoban up the road, and there eagle enclosure is smaller than my aviary. I showed it to them once and they asked if Liberty, the eagle, could stay there for a while, jokingly of course, I told them I didn't think liberty and the ducks in there would get along....
According to the math, following 2ft per bird we could have like 2500 birds in there, but I don't think that is going to happen. My dad is an engineer and he is the one that designed it, I told him two things, make it big and make it be able to withstand at least two feet of snow. And wallah, this is what you get. It's really nice that it adds a nice element to the yard, my main worry with the birds is that it wouldn't make a big hideous muddy area in my yard, so I'm happy how this turned out. Though it still gets muddy in the spring, but doesn't everything?
