    Thank you.

    That is a very well built cage.. I cannot think of any way to improve it..
    It is always wise to have extra cage for emergencies...

    Glad your hen is doing better this evening....

    Wow Omran - that is a great little ICU for your clucks. Does the bottom (under the wire) pull out to be cleaned? I really like it...fantastic job!

    Glad to hear your hen is better - hope she gets well quickly.

    Quote:well the bottom does not pull out, because I don't have a tablesaw to make groves, but I made it this way so I can slide a newspaper down there andpull the newspaper out when itis dirty.

    Wow, that's really cool! I like the idea of making a little hospital coop. It would be perfect for separating a broody, too.

    I think you should paint it, because paint would make it easier to clean. If you keep sick birds in there, you would want to be able to wash it in-between uses.

    Great job! I agree with maybe painting it for easy clean up. Great idea.

    Ooh, very nice! Glad to hear your hen is better. Hopefully you wont have to use this well built cage very often. I do agree with The Chicken Lady that you should paint it though. Otherwise, [​IMG] nice!
