    Camping you're full of it :Lau . I bet you can be a little spitfire when pushed. My mom's little and sweet as can be. But when you push her buttons, she'll rip your head off lol

    Well, I took a few classes. ;) There are only a few ways to arrange everything. That's why newspapers always look pretty much the same.

    So Red, now that I caught up. I had so many comments and cheers I wanted to share but just couldn't. I'm past goin today. I wanted to mention your tractor idea. It sounded great! I wanted to mention though, and anybody else feel free to correct me: The suggested dimensions: For LF coop, the minimum, like someone posted is 4 sq ft. That's a 2X2 square. For the run, it's a 5X5 square per bird. 2 ft per bird for roost.
    For the smaller birds, you can pack them in tighter.
    Heat:LF have a larger body mass and I can't imagine them needing heat in your climate. The little birds, IMHO, if they're not densely feathered, if they don't have plenty of coop-mates to cuddle with, if the temp drops suddenly, I personally would supply a heat source. I'm not a fan of lamps. A pig mat on a wall, A Lectro-mat, an oil heater for a large coop. Just sayin.

    Thanks mutt. Y'all have talked me out of the heat lamp. Didn't think about a fire. If needed I'll go another route.

    Oh mutt how many do you think I can put in the swing coop. I figured five but I think Jane said 24. I'm terrible at figuring though lol
