When I bought my owl, I didn't want just a run of the mill aviary like a lot of people have such as an old shed with a bit of chicken wire in place of the window. I wanted an aviary that was a piece of the house, something to look at and admire and somewhere where my owl would be comfortable and safe. Most people have chain link on their aviaries and I nearly had the same too until I found the square mesh and I'm glad I did, it looks absolutely superb and I couldn't have found anything better. It has the security of the chain link but much better aesthetics. I get comments about the aviary as much as I get about the beauty of my owl.
