    Hello all,

    My name is mike and I am from Lilly, PA. I am an avid outdoorsman, and just started building my first quail or chucker pen last night for training my Labrador. She is a great grouse hunter, and I want to do this as a way for her to be on bird all year round. I put up my post in the coop design forum but it kicked it back as I do not have permissions to post pictures as of yet.

    I am a mechanical designer by trade and plan on created a whole set of blue prints as well as instruction manual of my design for free for anyone who wants them. I will make them in a pdf format so anyone can use them.

    I love reading about all of the coop desings and such. my first will be more of a functional side but plan on getting a bit more elaborate when the time comes.

    Thank you for all of the helpful insights,

    Mike

    Or links, LOL! My intro post went to moderation for one in my "about me" section of suggested questions (I'm a writer, and linked to my website). *sigh*

    But let me welcome you to the site! I have learned a TON lurking here while I planned my coop.
