    We put the posts in the ground (2ft down!) the day before.
    All we had to do was wait for the cement to dry.
    So we went to pick up 2 I. B. Pieds It took us 3 1/2 hrs to get there. (lots of rain!)
    She had an absolute gorgeous selection. Peach, Cameo, BS, IBP White eyes IBSilver pied all kinds cannot remember all the types.
    So we got the two I wanted and came home.
    As we were pulling around the drive talking about putting up the fence and netting we saw that the tree Right in the Middle of the pen we were building for them had fallen, wee, broke off about 20 ft. up!
    It is about 6in. from hitting one of my posts and we can't pull it with the tractor(too heavy). so my husband and son are cutting limbs in a safe area with hopes to lighten the load. Whew
    I will try to post a picture.
    I do have two beautiful India Blue Pieds sitting in the truck waiting for us to finish.

    Sounds like you dodged a bullet! And I think we need pics of your birds and your pen [​IMG]. Sorry you have more work ahead of you!

    I am thankful your birds and your family were not hurt! And hope it doesn't take too long before the pen is up and usable!

    Thank goodness the birds were not in there. I always get worried about the oak tree near the bird pen losing a limb.

    If they would have been in there and not got crushed then they would have got out never to be seen again. You got lucky!

    You all are absolutely right! I am very thankful that they were not in there. We are almost done with the pen and I will have my husband put the pics up for me.

    The netting and fencing was/is going to surround the tree, or what is left of the tree (toothpick) now.
