Custom Built Faconry Mews for Housing Birds of Prey
Based on our Chapman aviary, this bespoke falconry mews had a security entrance and large birdhouse. Our customer wanted a secure mews for their bird of prey, but they didn’t want any mesh on the building. With this in mind, we swapped the mesh front for galvanised bars which is considered by many falconers to be safer for birds of prey.
The aviary needed to be fit for purpose – safe, easy to clean and usable. The security entrance provided a two-door entry to prevent the bird from escaping, and we lined it with wipe-clean PVC. The entrance also had a phenolic coated floor, which is hard-wearing and easy to clean with disinfectant. As well as security, the entrance area also provided space to store feed, tethers and other raptor essentials.
The large flight area had no flooring to allow our customer to add gravel after installation. To keep the aviary cool in summer and warm in winter, we insulated the entire structure. We lined the insulation with white PVC, therefore creating a space that is wipable and easy to clean.
