    Just like that I was hoping to turn it into something maybe for waterfowl put a pond with a filter? Would i have to take off the roof? and maybe put in some soil and plant some plants?


    It is october now when i move so stuff is going to be dying? But i can still have the pond in there? any ideas turning that into an aviary?

    It is not that exact one but looks like that.

    Would cutting out a few windows and putting hardwire cloth be good enough for sunlight? then adding a pondliner with a filter?

    Condensation on the interior roof and walls will be an issue in your winter climate with a metal structure, even with just respiration and excretion let alone a pond.
    Plus it would be difficult to 'filter' duck pond water sufficiently.
    You might consider a contractors tub for a water source, enough water for them to bathe and clear nostrils, but easy to empty and refill with clean water.

    if i wanted to change it to a pigeon loft would cutting 4 windows for sunlight be good enough to prevent moisture?



    I just want to make sure enough clean air would be in there? pigeons do well in nasty air but i was hoping 4 windows would be good enough?

    unless i left it totally open and put a small flight pen in front? the dogs would scare them.
