My facility is looking into a bird aviary for our residents. Actually a staff member was able to purchase a nice one for dirt cheap at an auction. I am concerened with how these have worked for other facilities that have or have had them? Honestly my main concern is compliance with state regulations and running into trouble there. I understand we have to have policies in place and can only have certain birds, we have to have a cleaning schedule...etc. Can any one offer any guidance in this area? Will these be beneficial for the residents or will it simply be nice for a month or so and then just sit in the corner?
Thanks for your input.
