I am prolly missing it, but is it possible to get in it?  You know, if a bird gets stuck, or to capture the birds?  Walk on the wood?

Looks VERY nice,  i will prolly steal your design for my next pen.  Hope you don't mind!

There is a door on the covered end of the pen(side)....you can see it in a couple of the pictures I posted.

I walk on the flooring framework....don't need boards to walk on, the wire floor is 16 gauge half x one welded wire (galvanized after weld), not hardware cloth, so I can literally jump up and down on it if I want to, but obviously don't.

It costs a little more upfront for the better materials, but it pays off in the long run.  (i.e. heavy duty netting, all treated lumber, heavy gauge wire, galvanized hardware, etc)

Bird Brained,

The question should have been - does anyone have the pictures that used to be on Fozzie's site?  I click on the link in your original post as well as this recent one and I'm told Yahoo Photo has been shut down.  I'm a visual kind of guy!

Thanks,

Dave

What do you mean I have to press 1 for english.

A pigeon submerges his head the full length of their beak to drink and sucks the water up like drinking with a straw. This waterer will work for them if they can do that with it..But most likely they would crap all over it and fowl the water. I like to use a bullet style waterer for pigeons.

Very nice and the pics are great. If you don't mind, do you know how much you have wrapped up in your pen? I am going to need to build something similar for quail but haven't started figuring out the costs.

Yep, sure do.  Uncle sam does too since I'm depreciating it on my taxes.  I'd hate to know how much material has went up from 2 years ago.

Someone asked the same question back in July 2006 when it was under construction.  Here's the link to that thread.
