yes my aviaries are almost to big some guys tell me that my golden pens are to big and that is a reason they aren't breeding well...

I call BS on that one ! How big are the "pens" in their natural (wild) state ? You cannot have a pen too big.


How big are your ?

Don't forget the bottom 2x4s should be treated. Untreated will rot too fast.
River sand is great for the sand, but you still need grit.

50lb bag of what ?
Sand ? Don't buy sand ! It's free everywhere !

Or you talking grit ? Grit area only has to be a small dish, say a foot or so square, with enough in it so it will not spill. Not that it matters.
#2 size for Pheasants and #1 size for Quail.

Going to have a few up-dated pictures of my aviaries this spring/summer !
