Has anyone had any experience with housing a medium-sized parrot (eclectus in this case) with several smaller birds such as canaries and finches? I'm talking about an 8-foot outdoor aviary. During the colder months they would be indoors and not in the same cage..Thanks..

Absolutely not. No way. No!!Never ever ever put a large parrot into any enclosure with smaller species. There is every chance the large bird will kill the smaller ones.

Lol It was short term and out of the breeding season Ray. Now, the canaries live with my cockatiels.Doing Ok -ish. my 2 month old new washing machine has broken and currys won't take it back cos it is "not company policy", they want to fix it . I have managed to hurt myself carting 2 car loads of fruit and veg for the animals and transferring it all to the store shed, I have 10 trees to plant this afternoon,one of the pigs got out yesterday because the battery to the electric fence had run down,I had a fliiping huge rat in my middle room (the one with the quarry tile floor before the living room) last evening but otherwise, life is a breeze right now.

Freya the cocker loves ratting, and she was nosing at a kitchen cupboard and wagging her tail like mad. I got a torch and shone it under the cupboards. Nothing. I told her she was imagining things, but she was insisting. So I shone the torch betyween the back of the cupboard and the wall and hey presto something there. So I made Kip go one end, and HArley this end and pulled the cupboards away from the wall, only HArley decided to go the other end as soon as I pulled.

The biggest rat you have seen shot out my side and tried to climb the walls. It was a good foot long. I yelled for kip, and he shot round and got the rat. The bugger fought back though and bit Kip, but it didn't stand a chance and just because it bit him , Kip worried and worried at the body, shaking it when I told him to. I know there are rats about at the moment, and I refuse to use poison. I have ordered some new traps and a rat zapper which will arrive next week.

The trouble is, the dog flap. This rat simply came through the dog flap. Silly bugger. Oh well, these are the joys of living a rural life I suppose. I too the ferrets out the other day up near the henhouse so there is a good chance we scared the rats down towards the house as the smell of ferrets absolutely terrifies them.
