Here is a magnificent realization of a breeding battery, it is composed of 4 boxes to accommodate 4 pairs of Catherine parakeets or other birds of equivalent size.
This breeding battery was carried out with brio by our friend Claude Z, an active member of the Bird and You forum.
It is cheap, amateurish, and simple work to achieve with a convincing and stunning result
I guess with a little imagination, some elbow grease, and the directions below, you too can make your own breeding battery, for individual cage breeding.
- 1 galvanized shelf 2 m high x 1 m wide (4box)
- Salvage battens and some screws and netting.
- Plexiglas for the manufacture of doors
- Purchase of shelves 19 € at Brico Dépôt.
- Each box is 1mx0.50 × 0.50.
- There is no cleaning drawer but just a newspaper which will pass between the facades and the 8mm shelves.
- All fronts are hinged for full opening and more convenient cleaning.
- The right part of the facade is for the outdoor nests, it is much more practical for visiting the nests.
- The doors are in plexiglass.
- The total cost of the breeding battery is 47 €.
Manufacture of the breeding battery
