This page to be used in conjunction with the "equipment" web page.

The "birdroom" is an area that does not normally house birds.  Can be divided into two types
1.. The clean hygienic area, e.g. food preparation, food storage, small equipment storage
2.. The bulky item storage area that does not need the same level of hygiene.  That does not mean the area is allowed to become dirty or contaminated.

The "clean birdroom" area is usually a room separated from the aviaries, to
1.. Store the bird seed
2.. Prepare foods
3.. Cleaning area for food bowls, utensils, water bowls etc
4.. Food preparation equipment such as fridge, freezer, food warmers, microwave oven, electric kettle for heating or boiling water etc.
5.. Stainless steel benches
6.. Cupboards for storage
7.. First aid items for birds and people
8.. May have a quarantine or sick bird area but this may cause contamination of the whole room and jeopardize the health of all the birds.
8.. Store cleaning products
9.. May need a small air-conditioner/cooler unit for comfortable working conditions in summer
