I was able to get an Impeyan chick last year for a good price. I am not sure if I am ready to actually get a female for him and start breeding, so I am just keeping him alone for now. He has proven to be a good teacher, I knew they dug, but I had no idea as to the extent. Now to anyone else who has them out there how are your pens set up so that they still look good in spite of thier digging? I was not sure about lining the bottom with something similar to chicken wire so that they couldn't actually dig down, but was not sure if this would stress the bird. Another option was a sand base, but how deep would this need to be? Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
