    You can make them solid wire with the 1x1 being sides and top a floor of 1/2x1 with poop catch trays if you want them stacked, they are really quite simple just using a 2x4 and hammer to bend the wire where needed, and the little crimp J-clips to join the bottoms and sides. Then put the wire on for the front and back using J-clips as well.

    It is all put together but I haven't finished painting it. I did frames for the hive body & will have to do more later when they are needed but they take up too much room to put them together now.

    Kass,
    I would have to agree, on the Prental control, it seems anymore kids are set down in front of video games and TV and left to thier own vices. Parental involvement and proper discipline is critical with kids, without these two things the world is going to very dismal place.
    I feel as though everything the kids get to do is a priviledge not a right, and they know thats how I see it here. They earn what they get and will appreciate later in life even if they don't like it now, when they are 30 they will understand.

    Once POCO figures out what she is interested in, I may be interested in the manual extractor.

    That's the way you used to have to do it with Sevin dust. Nowadays you can just use Frontline or Eprinex and be done with it. It spreads through the oil glands on their skin and keeps lice and mites off for 3 months. Although I feel better putting more drops on them every few months.
    I don't think it's mites she's dealing with-Robin, what makes you think it's mites and not lice?

    I seriously doubt your Silkie boy died from mites (or lice). *All* birds have e. coli (that's the infection I fought last fall). When they become sick from something else or stressed (new home, shipping, etc) it overtakes their system. Honestly-my guess is that's what happened to him. The lice/mites are just secondary.
    Keep in mind-lice and mites are *different, have different life cycles. With Lice you don't even have to bother treating their sleeping area-just Frontline or Eprinex. With mites you DO have to treat their bedding. I'll shut up now. I just hate to see you stress over something that's so very simple to treat and prevent.


    Vebi, those 2 birds are gorgeous! What kind are they?
    I wish pigeons were tame in the way my Serama is. He's the sweetest tamest calmest bird I've ever known.
    ROFL!!! Kass, he wore socks on his hands to "remind" him not to chew off his fingers??? lol OMG I feel so flippin' SANE when I hear this stuff.
