    Any info is appreatiated.

    This is just their temporary digs. We are having snow and high winds and ice in our area so i figured they deserved a nice dry pen to settle into.

    thanks, i just wanted ideas lol. i have no plans of breeding them professionally or anything. i mean if they lay some eggs i'll incubate them. I've heard free ranging them can get messy and I'd really just like to build a large avairy for them along the back side of the property to watch them from my windows [​IMG]


    I know that their enclousure is small right now, but am i correct that warm and dry is better than being out in an ice/sleet storm and 20 degree temps? Or are they hardier than i thought.

    they are way hardier than what you think but it is good that you're keeping them out of the elements. I would keep them in a big avairy myself, its alot at risk when you have them free ranging. Give them another year or two and then you'll defintly get some eggs. Good luck. Andy:thumbsup
