Is there a wire or something else that can be used to stop ferrets getting into aviaries? One ate my mum's owl over the weekend, and I want to keep them out so no one else gets eaten. (It could have also been a large rat.)

How can I keep the birds in my aviary safe?

  • can you provide us with photos of the aviary? – Rebecca RVT Feb 10 '18 at 21:09

    I used to have predator issues with weasels and my chicken coop, please post a photo of the aviary and then I will be able to give you a good recommendation on what kind of mesh to use and how to install it. – TCAT117 Feb 12 '18 at 5:58
