The Aviary

A recent addition to the farm, our Aviary hosts a range of birds including budgies, cockatiels and miniature chickens.

We have a variety of birds in our large outdoor aviary including budgies, cockatiels and Dutch Bantam chickens.

Budgerigars are popular pets around the world due to their small size, low cost, and ability to learn to talk. However, they do take a lot of looking after (and can be quite messy!). All of the budgies in our aviary were given to us as unwanted pets.

Like a lot of our animals, budgies and cockatiels love living together. They originally come from Australia where they live in large flocks and eat seeds, fruit and vegetables. We do our best to feed them exactly the same thing here!

The Dutch Bantams are a very small breed of chicken that live  on the floor of the aviary. We have a trio – a cockerel and two hens.
