I have recently taken the plunge into ornamental/exotic fowl...I have had chickens for years but have always loved the pheasants, doves & pigeons, lorries, quail, and small water fowl that require aviaries to be truly happy. I got a crazy good deal on a pair on red golden pheasants and a pair of frillback pigeons. They are currently in adequate sized pens but I have been considering turning my old abandoned hoop house into a large Aviary! it is 47'x 12'x 8' high. What I want to know is: #1 will the hoop house work? #2 what type of flooring? #3 I live in Tn it gets very hot and very cold ...zone 6b. what do I need to do in winter as it's not heated? I have read that my Pheasants should be fine and pigeons live thru much worse up north, so..... #4 what birds will be ok w/o heat? Can I cover in plastic and heat in winter if I add vent fans? #5 What other birds live well with my pigeons and pheasants as I have read they do well together. What I want is...more pigeons/doves...maybe exotic fruit / Victoria crowned doves as I improve my aviculture skills.... How can I keep these warm enough? Can they winter in the barn w/ a heat light ??? I also love Wood ducks & all small ducks...call, mandarins, teals, silver pin tails being one of my very favorite! and I'd like to have another hen or two for my RG cock, and/or maybe some type of tragopan as I've heard they are more friendly. I am a big fan of vulturine guineas, small parrots , cranes too! Really I am open to any suggestions as long as my current birds will get along with them and I can keep them alive in my climate . I am very handy and fairly well funded so I can do the work and buy materials to get it done, I'd just really like some real advice the internet is often so vague ...... Thanks for your time any positive feedback would be greatly appreciated and not haggled about, as I know very little ..........if someone would take me under a wing and teach me I'd love to be a sponge to soak it all up!!!
