    So far behind on posts! And I see great pics that I want to comment on, but by the time I get to the end of the posts, I've forgotten which ones. [​IMG]

    Question about the feedlot panels: In the past I've bought some at TSC and had them cut them for me to make smaller pens. Last fall I bought several used ones from a farmer, thinking I could do the same. I have the same size bolt cutter that TSC used but can't get through the wire. Any suggestions? Maybe it's just my poor upper body strength!

    On attaching them, I use hog ringers. They hold up well and can be pried apart or cut when needed, and there aren't the sharp ends that could be there with wire. For a gate, the hog rings allow the panel to swing easily.

    Well, my first time integrating a single bird into an established flock, and all is going well! Margaret is already one with the 'big girls'. :D I'm a happy chicken momma. Thank you so much, Brad, for this fluffy little darling!

    what about sliding some pipe over each handle to get more leverage? If that doesnt work go with an angle grinder or dremel tool. Or even a hack saw?


    thank you! So glad shes fit in so well. She definitely got a good home!
