Hi everyone! I have always loved the idea of planted aviaries for my birds, because i really think it gives them a better quality of life and i also think that it helps to improve their breeding habits ( But that is just a theory). I have found that very few plants can stand up to the beating that my peas give them. The peas always seem to eat them down to the ground they are worse than my sheep! Anyway I have found that rose bushes hold up to the peas pretty good as long as the roses are mature when you introduce them to the aviary or in my case my yard as well because i have roaming peas too! The peas actually keep the rose bushes pruned up for me so the leaves do not start until the stem gets to right above pea height! That is why you want your roses to be taller when you put them in pea territory and when you prune them back late in the year keep in mind you cant prune them as traditional roses you have to prune them higher as "Pea roses". I also am going to try to put pampas grass in for them, i ordered some from an online nursery and now i have to wait until they are large specimens to put them in the aviaries but i am excited! I also have started some grape vines on the wire on the outside of the aviary and am encouraging the vines to grow up the sides! I hope it works! Has anyone tried this? what was the outcome? Also what do you think about bamboo in the aviaries? I am afraid the peas would eat all the new shoots? I am also going to try to put landscape bark down for the substrate in the aviaries as this will give a natural forest look and give them something other than dust to play in. Has anyone tried that? I am going to get the larger particle stuff so that it does not cause sinus problems. Has anyone tried any other plants? I am pretty good at growing things so i would love some more ideas. The more tropical plants i have i usually have on the outside of the aviaries so they dont get destroyed but i would love to be able to tie the inside landscaping with the outside if you know what i mean? Any ideas are welcome! I would love to discuss this with you guys to come up with some other great ideas!
