How many of y'all use chain link kennels for runs, and what do you put over them? Like, I know a tarp but do you actually enclose the top with anything or leave it open? I want to move my barred rocks to the kennel now that they're big enough but for some reason am hesitant
The one that my peafowl go in has doubled over aviary netting over the entire thing, plywood over part, and a cattle panel on top of all of that ... then there is hardware cloth wrapped all around at ground level. The Brahmas have aviary netting only over the area of their nest and roosts, the rest is open.
Robo, what would you think if we do an egg exchange at your farm when we meet? You know, like a cookie exchange. We could all bring like two dozen hatching eggs, open the cartons and each would get however many divided by how many people there are) so you take home two dozen eggs from everyone! (Like if there are 12 people who come and they each bring 2 dozen hatching eggs, you would get 2 from every person) That would be so fun! We could mark (to the best of our ability) what the eggs are. What does everyone think?
So, I am looking for some more Lavender Ameraucanas. Anybody have extras or eggs? Kevin is an unreliable source at this time.
Love the idea. Wonder if there is a way to adjust for anyone wanting to participate that can't get together 2 dozen fresh hatching eggs? I know that some of the folks that have mentioned wanting to come may not have that number of birds.
Probably should be sure at least one of us knows. haha
