Will these birds be let out to fly? Will they have an aviary? Are you going to want more birds down the road?

Could you go 3X5? Will you have nest boxs?

I dont know really without seeing the way its laid out .

But I'll put in my .02 worth .... don't make it any deeper than arms length . Otherwise you'll have a hard time reaching in and getting your birds out .

I think either one would house 4 birds . You could divide it and a pair on each end .

unless I'm missing something here . Is this a ready made loft , or you just have that much space to build it in ?

If that were definitely my only choice, I'd probably go with the 3X3, but another foot would make a difference. The larger you can go, the better.

Is that 3' length x 3' width x 5' height? If so I would rather go with that. They have space to go down.
The other dimensions you gave is confusing to me. Is that 2' width x 5' length x 5' height? They don't have much space to go down (too narrow). You can, however, make that like individual breeding boxes.

I'm confused here. Is this one like you are going to build , or is it already built ?

Whats wrong with this one if you already have it built ?

Get out your saw and hammer and modify it like you want

Oh , OK . I got ya now .

Nice looking unit .

See what others say .... I'm learning too . My loft is 3Hx3Wx8L long and 4 birds in this one and its fine . 5 feet of it is hardware cloth and is the aviary part . They nest in one end in 2 compartments . Thats why I said dont get it too deep . I changed mine , it was originally deeper and a pain to clean put and get a hold of my birds .
