    Hi I just made this design using a program on my computer and I wanted to know if this is too small to have a trio of game birds? By game birds I mean game cocks I want to breed these birds because I think they are all beautiful and there is so much variation. I want to know if this is big enough for them to breed and have chicks. One rooster and 2 game hens they will have time to roam the yard I plan on putting them on tethers to be able to run around the yard.[​IMG]

    Did you change the drawing from " to '....or was I just blind before?
    Yes, I would think so....Tho 4 x 6 x 4 might be better, more floor space, they can't fly in that small a cage anyway.
