Oh, sorry, that's a typo, I'll fix. I had done the conversion of sq yds to sq ft in the margin of my book - unless my math is off, it converts to ~200 sq ft per bird (I have my one set up rectangular long ways due to the terrain, so it's about 1500 sq ft. (Boy, 20 sq ft per bird, that would be TIGHT!!!!!!)
Glad you can adapt - I was worried when you were talking about sinking posts. (I'm using more temporary posts and netting, since stuff keeps changing here...)

Your math is good... 200 sq. ft. is between 22 - 23 sq. yards.
Thanks. My goal is to have two semi-permanent pens, and if it comes down to needing to move either or both, that's doable, too. I can just pull the posts and move them...
Cool. May I ask - what method did you use to put in the posts, such that you can pull them back up again? I'm assuming not concrete. (Just trying to learn.) One of these days I may end up with less temporary and more permanent enclosures... (Then again, we have so much rock here, maybe I should just stick to T-posts.)
Who's building up stuff about HRIRs??? Certainly not me!
I sure was getting worried as I kept pulling egg after egg after egg... which I knew was very likely with shipped eggs. It seems to have smoothed out for the time being, and I have 20 cooking now. Really hoping these will go the distance!
Oh yes you were...
You were so excited, you just couldn't help but talk about it before you got them, and then after you ordered them, and then when they were in transit, and then unboxing pics... at least enough so in the thousands of posts on this thread I remembered (a miracle in and of itself - I had to buy one of those Tile things since I can't find my keys most days). I am not hatching again until fall at the earliest, so I have to throw myself into vicarious enjoyment of everyone else's hatches.
Here's hoping there rest make it to lock down. 20 is a decent number to get started with. What else do you keep, other than Barred Rocks?
