Same Aidan, because we are on 54 acres, we have a pretty big backyard on the property around the house, and down the corner of the yard are all the aviaries, and people always joke about the whole fence line disappearing because of all the aviaries along them
If only :(

On the other hand, if I ever get an acerage it probably will be filled to the brim with aviaries. I'd need a good job for so many aviaries though...

I won't have acreage, just aviaries and pathways
Hopefully I am going to meet the well renowned parrot breeder, Les Banks and see his amazing 220 aviaries

Wow! He is pretty world-renowned, and has such an amazing collection of parrots.

He's not called the 'Quaker man' for nothing, he saved the pure normals from extinction in our aviaries.
I had an aviary visit to my place and a few others in Toowoomba, including Banksy's, by the Fraser Coast Bird Club, and they checked out and saw all our collections and they went to Banksy's place and everyone absolutely loved it there.
I did work experience with Dr Bob Doneley and I said I really wanted to meet him, he said I should go and meet him as Banks'y would love to have a younger breeder visit him, as well as another vet and members of the Fraser Coast Bird Club
I will meet him at the club first and introduce myself, then ask
Thanks

Gouldian finches for me; particularly the orange headed normals.
