There won't be any new birds going in for a while now as I've decided to start over with Chicks and will raise them in my house for a the first months.

    That's a great idea to wait a little while and then start with chicks while your coop is in isolation. [​IMG]

    Doc Brown is a great guy to consult-glad you were able to get hold of him! He's been so helpful to me in very concrete ways in the past.
