    hey ! thats good to know that there are some other mid michiganders here
    i may need some advice about getting my birds thru the cold months.
    actually i dont have any birds yet.... yet.
    i got to get my coop finished, i lost some head way today, i built a frame and window and it just was not strong enough
    i have coyotes pretty heavily here, and i want the coop to with stand a coyotes attack..
