how do i catch them i tried to catch one yesterday to look at the band but i couldn't because they started bumping into each other and fell on the floor and i thought they might get hurt so i didnt catch em..
The best way to catch them, until they get used to you and you get better at catching them, is to go in at night, in the dark, very quietly. You can almost pick them up. It WILL startle them, so you have to make sure you have a good hold when you do this or they may get injured flying in the dark. I would recommend that you wait a few more days before even trying this. If you have time, go sit in the loft. Don't move. Don't try to catch the birds. Just sit. For 1/2 hour or so. Then leave. Try doing this 2 or 3 times a day. If you go into the loft and "mess" with them every time, they are going to start associating you with a chase.........and they'll stay scared. With the age that these birds are, it's probably going to take a while for them to calm down....but with time and patience, they'll come around eventually.

The aviary looks fine to me.

Renee,
Thanks for the simple tips! I apparently was doing it wrong when I kept on catching them initially everytime I go inside. They used to be tame, but the more I catch them, the more they hate me.
