    I THINK you meant TWO SQUARE YARDS?
    two square feet is smaller than the size of a typical desk calendar.
    Looks big to me. If that is 1"x2" wire, it is about 4 feet long and probably two feet wide.By the feeders size, it looks two feet WIDE, at least, and maybe twice as long.
    Which, makes it 8 square feet...PLENTY of size. The size of a small dest top.
    I'd say it could handle 8 to 12 long term with no problem.

    haha i thought that too but i didnt wanna say anything cuz im not good with measurments off hand but the feeders looked dwarfed in the pen so i was like woah...either they have really tiny feeders OR thats way bigger than they're saying [​IMG]


    I would say that could carry more around the lines of 30 birds easily but that would be stinky indoors [​IMG] lol
