Mice & Rats
The fact that we feed our bird extensively on a seed diet could attract rodents and vermin in and around our birdrooms. At worst rats can kill your birds and both mice and rats will cause havoc in the breeding cage.
You will be aware of them by longish brown pelleted droppings, and you must take action at once or the problem will just get worse. The best way to do this is to call in pest control specialists, as they will have the expertise to deal with them without putting your birds at risk.
Mice can quickly become a serious problem, as where there is food freely available, they will breed and multiply rapidly. They will destroy your aviary in no time, as they can get in-between the lining materials in the walls and nest there. If they find a place in the floor to nest, it will be very difficult to get rid of them with poison or traps.
