So we modded a box, from stuff around the house to extend their domain.
The idea is to give them a nest box or at least more space for a few weeks .
Step 1: Procure finches
so we went and got some finches, from a local breeder. They bring a little more life to the new house and garden.
Step 3: Mark and cut out the hole the same size as cage hole.
So i used a tape and found the gap was 100mmX100mm.
I centerd the hole up, but you could move it to the sides if needed.
Step 4: Dry run fixings
Then i used a pencil to push holes through the cardboard gently, I then stuck one of those reinforces over the punctured hole.
Step 5: Camoflage the box.
we chose a natural theme to blend in of course.
so mark it up, cut and past.
we used sticky tape and that also helped firm up the edges.
I think the finished cover is great.
Step 6: Make the roost nice..COFFEE ALL OVER THE LAPtop.............omg no
the laptops in bits downstairs drying out..
Step 7: Fix the box to cage
i put a bit of blockboard on top of the tie-wired top just to be sure.
i can get in from the top to clean.
