Good ventilation for an Avic?

    Recently acquired a sub adult A. Avic. She is in a temp enclosure while i build her a new one. Its a basketball display case from the local craft store i am clearly modifying. Im not nearly done with it. Just got my acrylic hinges for the front swing door and cement that bonds plastic and acrylic. Now i have on each side two rows of 1/8' (3mm) holes top and mid as well as a single row on the angled corners. Does this look like i have adequate ventilation? Should i add some holes to the lid or the soon to be front door? Any advice would be appreciated. 20180211_195002.jpg

    That looks fantastic IMO, you could maybe add some extra in the lid, or an extra row into the sides for good measure but honestly fine how it is.

    I'd add a few holes in the lid but looks great otherwise.

    I’m curious about the enclosure as a whole. Is that a HobbyLobby B-ball display case? Did you cut the front out? How does it close back up?

    Yea its a hobby lobby basket ball display case. I installed hinges and locks on the lid. I cut out the front, and i cut an acrylic sheet for the front door. The dimentions are 9.5'x 9.5'

    Looks great. Except that it's a top-opening enclosure and your Avic is going to web that lid shut at her earliest convenience :D
    You could maybe tilt it so that it is front opening?

    Edit: nevermind....

    Sweet! How does the front door work?

    Looks nice, and should work well. But I usually make vent holes across container, so air because of convection is flowing through whole container.
    Something like this :
