    Okay, I have this thread going in the meat bird section but i figured i would post it here too. Can I please see pics of your meat bird housing setups?

    We want to do meaties for the first time and are looking to house 25 birds at the most. I want something that I can move by myself if necessary. Please help me decide what to do by showing me pics of your meat bird housing setups!!!! [​IMG]

    Its my opinion (and observation) that Meaties should be on soft ground and shavings. Not on wire. Its not good for their leg joints to be on wire as they are stressing themselves growing so fast. So... with that in mind, the sky is the limit I guess.

    Check out the Meat Birds Etc section of the forum, there are lots and lots of threads about peoples' pens or tractors [​IMG]
