    These appear to have held up well during the snow load, Tony. Did you get the snow/rain 'weather bomb' or did it pass you by?

    There are 14-6x12x6 pens here.The pitched roof is also part of the pen,so the middle is about 71/2'high.The size of the entire pen is 12'x 84'.I raise ornamental pheasants ,diamond doves and buff sebrights.The top of this pen is a construction poly(10Mil).The sides are just regular 6mil poly which come off when the weather warms up.I am hoping to build 11 more pens that are 8x16x8.
