Cool. I'll look into that... sort of a custom addition "pop top" for coops?
Thanks Onstad1. If it seems doable, I would love to be your first guinea pig!
There isn't any great urgency, as one of my 7-week old "chicks" crowed yesterday, so I'll have to re-home him and probably at least one more. That would bring my little flock down to four, although I would like to replace the cockerels with a couple of more mature pullets or layers.
I am frequently in the Springs, at my son's near Powers and Briargate, and could plan to get together with you at some point. Otherwise, I'm in Denver, near Downtown.
Thank you for letting the "pop top" be a possibility for you and your helpers.
