Well if you do not want to breed. I would say you should
ofcourse probably start with zebras and societys and get the
hang of birds if you're not already in the hang with them.
Then move to Gouldians and Cordon bleus, and owl and star
finches, i cannot wait till i get these types of birds! I may
get a java pair soon, but it all matter and depends... Also it
depends what types of birds you'll have in the aviary and how
many. when i am not breed my birds, i'll have 4 zebra finch
pairs, 2 society finch pairs, 1 orangew eaver pair in my
aviary. And well i never had anyfights. And my aviary is a 'L'
shape. And one way its almost 8 feet and going the shorter way
its 4 feet, and its 2 feet wide and 6 feet tall. My bird like
it :). I fill my aviary with fake ivy and trees. :)
