Hi Dean,
The best option is for a concrete flooring as this is easy to clean and keeps out the vermin. However you or your partner may not like to see a 'concrete jungle' so the second option is stone chippings etc. To keep out the vermin place small holed wire on the floor first (do not use thin chicken wire as they eat through it easily) then cover with a good depth of chippings. This allows you to wash the mess away and move the stones around. Do not use sand as this soon gets dirty and is hard to clean as is a mulch - which would also allow bacteria to breed. You do not mention what type of birds you wish to place in the aviary but if it is a ground eating bird - generally a parakeet type and you want to give it an area in order to peck etc then there is an easy option and that is to grow a tray of seeds - grass, millet etc and place this in the base. You can have two or three of these sprouting at various times and simply replace one with another when necessary.

you better go for concrete flooring;
why i am saying because it is way too easy to clean;
active water proof agent so less chance for bacteria to breed.
PLUS you can personalized it in dark colors to diffuse stains etc :!:
Concrete can be easily swept, scrubbed and cleaned.
I personally experienced that parasitic worms can be cut down dramatically, as they do not like concrete;
it can also be covered by sand, that also keeps worms down.
Concrete is a permanent dry and safe flooring option!

Anyways you are the best judge of your choice! :)

I second everyone’s suggestion that you should go for concrete flooring. It will keep the floor clean and it will be easy to remove any water or sand from it. The only thing you have to consider is that it would not be suitable if you do bike stunting or boarding around that area.
