    Looks Good! I took the lazy way out. In Laws had an old Cattle watering trough turned upside down behind one of their garages for as long as I have known DH, who knows how long before that. So I helped myself to it, it's 8 feet long and about 2 feet wide, my three 3 week olds look so tiny in it compared to the rubbermaid they were in before, but 40 eggs just went into the incubator and 3 emus are set to hatch in a couple weeks, so it will get full fast!
