BIRD HOSPITAL BOX

By Heather Parsons


Hospital Box - Design by Jeff Hardy - Details by Heather Parsons


  1. Dimmer switch for temperature adjustment.

  2. Two globes in parallel in case one blows.

  3. There is a wall between the bird compartment and the globes with air holes to allow warm air to pass through. This wall is fixed and birds often lean up against it for extra warmth.

  4. Perspex to slide up for cleaning and extra airflow to drop temperature.

  5. Thermometer to continuously monitor temperature. Must be a rise and fall type.

  6. Air Holes – small plastic vents as in old cupboards.

  7. Door to change food etc. or to take birds in & out.

  8. It's a good idea to make a solid floor to remove for cleaning – made of thin metal.
