How deep is it? If its for a red tail, depending on the size of the bird, it may be to short. The problem with this is that when she mutes, his/her tail will hit the back. Then, if he/she has muted before, she will get the poop on her tail. Just a thought. Otherwise it looks awesome! way better than mine
not sure if thats enough or not but you dont want it to let in any light or atleast as little as possible i use four 2" round vent things i got from work but they have an angle on the fins so the light wont get in i would talk to you sponsor about how much ventilation you will need. Your box looks great though!! one other thing you might want to consider is to notch out the perch where it sits on the bottom so its kind of like a "n" shape and is just supported on the end so you can slide some newspaper under it to cover the bottom to make cleaning easier. Unless your just having it slide in and out and not attaching it in permanatly if thats the case your set already. just my ideas lol Do you have a cabinet shop or equiptment of some sort my box looks nothing like that
It looks great so far, can I make a suggestion?? The two inch round vents are the way to go, and the perch needs to be at least 1" round stock wrapped w/ astroturf not hemp (can cause bumblefoot) and securly attached inside the box. This was at the strong insistance of a master falconer, otherwise the perch can dislodge while driving the bird to the field to hunt.
I definitely ventilate my box differently than anyone else ^_^
My box is balanced on the side braces and the bottom is off the ground. All my holes are drilled in the bottom of the box and then a few on the sides BEHIND the sheet of astroturf I put in there. No light, but vents.
