she's there though. There's a gun show (biggest one around) this weekend and my wife musta asked me 5 times this week if we going. We know they overpriced she likes to look at the old and odd stuff.

Have you tried it out?  I don't have any personal experience with it.  I just saw it and thought it might work.

Yesterday after snow blowing I got to spend a little time going thru the new birds. The females are definitely not as friendly as the roosters. Enjoy the day I'm going to prepare for the 12-15" they are saying we're are going to get tonight

My use for them is just a few days at a time. Those we used in my youth had doors made of spaced lats providing more ventilation. Lowest pens also just below waste high while upper pens you had about shoulder height.

My guess is just winter housing since it's so cold/snowy. Too small otherwise
