    Yep & you will only have her off the nest for a few minutes. Just hold her upside down & trim away. Carefully though so you don't hit skin.

    the one he made is styrofoam . it needed new heating wafers x2 and it has 2x2s inside that I think is messing with the humidity. I want to try and make one since I have all the right parts but not sure i am up to it. the good ones like Yorks are just too much money.

    I bet you could make a great one you know what is need and what isn't and how to make it idiot proof and easy to clean.

    I would really love to have one made with an old wooden cabinet or such to use for decoration full time in the living room. I know you cant use raw wood. marine varnish would be the way to go with wood. then I have an old "plastic?" cooler that would work too but if I have to do it I want it to look good. even the varnish is high. and the right cabinet would be too. seen a wine cooler at the junk store with a glass front and all the right shelves but they wanted $75. for it.
