the main for me was :

- All border must go directly on the drawers
- Possibility to make one ernormous cage when I remove all separation
- Grid have to go directly on the drawers


After I added so many others =) (even you can't see on these photos)
I specially designed it for my Lonchura

size : 910mm * 600mm * 690mm


If you have some more, you are welcome.

how did you fix the bars? is it possible to remove them for easy cleaning?

maybe some more light in the cages by led lights? i fit them subsequently in my cages.

the back looks like satined acrylicsheets right? different sheets are available in various colours. In my opinion it mellows the cages a bit and it is as easy to clean them as that ones you used.

are the drawers made of alu dibond? what are the weights? as lighter as better it is. by the way, how much weights one cage?
perhaps a (removable) shield maybe usefull if you remove the drawers while cleaning and the birds are still inside the cage.

For replicate them, do you have something like a construction plan? And an other important reason, could you be so kind to state some material expenses?

I don't know witch bar you speak, but no any bars can be remove for clean, but you don't need it, the profils between cage and between drawer can be removed for easy clean

You can use led or neon both can be fixed really easyly, more the cables are hidden.

I used trovidur (it's from Germany), I can confirm really easy to clean after some month of use. Even the shit with small water without rub.

drawers are in trovidur also, it's really resitant I can jump on it without break. dunno about the weight of one drawer maybe 1 or 2 kg.

about the total weight, its something about 28kg, coz one profil of aluminium witch are full and not empty. The next version I will replace that by polypropylene (used in food industry), it will remove 3 ~ 5 kg.

I don't need that, so i didin't thinked about it, but if one need it I can add it.

About material expenses well, the grid & stuff in inox cost around 100~ 110 euros (i bought it from a provider) (really good quality and solidity), and about 120~140 euros for other materials, have to count the time of work and marge to sell it.

The price will be the same as a "Soullier" cage (an other french brand of good quality but these cages are totally in inox or epoxy on galva)

About construction plan, the goal is to sell it so I will not give , if it don't work maybe I will update my mind

My goal was to remove at maximum the time to clean, and replace water and food. Because it's costed me more money that the price of these cages.

The other point was to hang anything anywhere in the cage.


For one couple of Lonchura I put more than 10 nests in one cage, was simply impossible with my old cages. More I can see now a really better result with the nests insides.

Hi Aurelien,

your system seems quite professional and technically perfect. And the possibility to devide and unite the boxes is a very good idea. I did it too. But comparing with my system maybe you could think about, how intelligent and sensible creatures like birdys feel, when they see all day white walls without teasing things. What can you do for them to enrich their life? I see them playing al the day with wooden pieces, green plants, hanging and climbing on leaves and branches. They can choose between sand and other floor covers and between different food. For healthy body developments they can use natural invents like bamboo, terra cotta, stones and branches of rough shrubs.

I would enjoy, if you could think about it.

Regards, Alex
