Backcountry The pen I just built is not tall enought to walk in it is only about 5 foot tall after I put the metal roof on it. now this pen is about 10 foot tall in the center and has a deck board all the way down the center with 2x6 floor joist I would never step directly on the wire with out a floor joist under it.  ty2 Jim (I keep pretty much the same age groups together)

I wouldn't stand on the wire either. It might hold you today, but tomorrow may be a different story.     sk3 

The wire will stretch no matter what it is fastened too, regardless of the span.

Hey Buddy, lookin' good! I just built a new pen myself. I have Coturnix left from the fall that I was going to use for hunting, then we got a foot of snow. Darn that global warming, where is Al Gore?   t1                  Ghost.

Hi GP, and  s016!   There are a couple ways to connect the PVC pipe to the boards; You can pre-drill and screw, or use a paddle bit 7/8inch for 3/4inch pipe and then either set it in or glue it. Ghost.

Is this a colony breeder? If so how do you get your eggs.. If it is a fight pen.. How are you getting the wild birds out?


Jim I wanted to thank you for all the pictures you take of your pens and the open ended discussions on them. They have served as a huge inspiration to me..

Thanks

Slayton farms, This is more of a flight pen than anything really it an over flow pen for when my flight pens are full. I've built catch cages on the end of this big pen and when ever I need to get birds out of the pen I open a small door and walk them in the catch cage and then shut the door.the catch cage is 4 foot long 2 foot wide and a foot tall with a door on the top of it so I can reach in and pick them out by hand.  ty2 Jim
