    Hey, for all of you thats been following the progress,
    Here are some new photos of recent work on portion of run that we wanted enclosed with roof and welded wire so the girl's would have a place to retreat from our southern rain storms.
    [​IMG] View of roop framing, sheathing and felt...plus welded wire across front.

    [​IMG] Another view from different angle.

    [​IMG] This is from inside the enclosed run area showing "bad guy" proofing welded wire in place.

    [​IMG] Another view.
    The area under roof is 10' x 10' . Their feed will be here and "nipple system'' as well. Safe place for when its raining and hot Louisiana sun kicking. Went with 1" x 1" welded wire here. Left it open for ventilation while they are outside. Still need to run water over and electricity. Build a few outside roosts, metal on roof over this area and hang feeder. Getting close now....feels good, except the checkbook. Hope ya enjoy.
