    Hello, this is my avairy this morning. I final got a photo of my eggs the button quail have been laying.

    Here are some of my baby canaries just hatched. Not a great photo - they nest right up the top of the aviary.

    Here's a quick photo of my flock.

    I am not a great photo taker, so sorry.
    They were all running around waiting for their breakfast.
    Today here in Australia its Friday - egg, nut and coral lettuce day (their favourite) plus the quail get their meal worms today.

    I think I lost 6 eggs yesterday [​IMG] unless they are buried under the others.

    [​IMG] Can you show us a picture of what the whole aviary looks like from the outside? I'm looking for aviary ideas for my fiancee.

    Thanks citalk2much. Nice to hear from you again.
    All three girls layed together. All three tend to the eggs and Cuddles their only male grooms and guards the females. He really likes his girls.
    Sorry that I am not a great photographer, I try.

    Here is a photo I took of my aviary the other day. Edited this for the photos.

    I cleaned it yesterday and figured out some better feeding dishes and water containers. They whole bottom floor now is empty except for a large planter base with river sand and their morning extra's dish (breakfast). Rap is still there. Shelf is gone as I didn't need it when I put in the new water containers. They are very shallow especially for the quail. On the upper shelf I put in the larger water dishes for the canaries because they love their baths.

    P.S. forgot I have also put removable 7mm wire frames on the bottom and for the door. Hopefully to keep any baby quail from straying out.

    From the looks of the picture I would say they have not made a nest yet when or if they choose to built a nest it looks like a tiny chicken nest.
