We had chooks, ducks and geese but most of the birds I kept were Australian finches and small parrots. Shaft tail, double bar, star, painted, gouldian finches, etc. And bourkes, turquoisine, scarlet chested, budgies, weeros, pink & grey galahs, major mitchel cockatoos; various quail and doves. I lost the lot during the cat war when someone came into my backyard and cut every panel of every aviary open from top to bottom and pulled the wire apart. Then they went into the aviaries and flushed all the birds out. The cops did nothing about it.
The only birds I have kept since then was a pair of canaries that lived in a cage and were put outside during the day when I was home and brought in at night.
