    $ 70!! It was $109 new and I purchased it 45 days ago new.

    Some of my birds are too small to activate it (I have bantams) and I am past the 30 day return window.

    Birds must weight 1.5lbs to activate.

    Just trying to recoup some costs before I get one that works for me.

    I also have a rodent proof run now so the rodent-proofing it provides isn't necessary for me.

    I won't ship - I live in Seattle area (Eastside in Newcastle).

    Until you sell---just add weight to the treadle---then they can open it.

    unfortunately they keep moving the weight, it is a heavy rock so it is beyond me how they do this, but they do it.

    Bolt on weight so it can not be moved. I got a answer for everything-----don't I? LOL
