building paradise for the birds

post #1 of 2135
Thread Starter 

hello this is the birdman coming in from bird central...here in lovely michigan...home of the chickens, peafowl, pheasants, turkeys,
and soon to be ducks...watch as the building begins..
ive been told that i should start a thread on my coops that i will be building....so i am..hope everyone enjoys it..
they wont be fully done until prolly late summer with everything....hope this will give ideas to many on how to build..
ive seen my fair share of large breeder coops and now its time for me to put what i have learned to the test and make
some nice coops...see the goal is to have it built (walls, netting on top, and wires around the perimeter...today and
tommarow) and then order the thermal bowls so the birds waters dont freeze and install all of them asap...and then
ofcourse seperate the birds for the breeding season coming up and wait for nature to do its part...plan is to install roofing
and a windmill for electricity this summer so everything can run off of the natural powers...then once this is done...a pond and
one large netted area for some ducks and peafowl....so one thing at a time and here we go...hold on to your chickens..this is gunna
be a learning experiance...
hope you enjoy the thread flockers...lol

not nice to pick on us old farts ..:old.

now that I re-read my post , it could go several different ways, couldn't it ?  

 

I went to my lean to and selected about 20 red oak boards..  

I have them in the shop warming up ..  then I will be planing them and sawing them into strips for the parts for the chicken plucker frame that I am going to build,,

 this will be my 4th whiz bang type of plucker.  

I sold the first three of them,,

then  I will have one for myself,,  until somebody comes along and wants to buy it..
