    Here is what we have so far... It is 125X75 and will be 10ft tall around the sidae and go up into the middle poll 14ft!
    I ahve a net to cover the top and down the sides which is 1.5inches by 1.5 inches.. I have some small teal (greenwing and ring teal) so I needed the smaller net.
    6ft high is going to be 1x2 wire and some smaller mesh/wie will be put up before breeding season begins.

    in the beginning

    We are getting closer....
    WE got the net on today 10/9 and hoping to get it attached tomorrow..
    we had to drain the pond today one last time because we have a small leak somewhere so we are puttin in two more truck loads of dirt and we need for it to dry out.. have 1 pole in for the door and the other will be put in once the door is done. I don;t have the small wire up for the babies yet but I have it and will do some hopefuly next weekend I figure I have some time on that! [​IMG]

    Also I have to get my cattails planted and we will be all done!
    I am getting excited!!
    Picking up alot of my new birds to add with my old next weekend Oct 16th
