Well here we are January 9th and we have yet to see any snowfall. Its really hurting my snowboarding hobby with hardly any trails open but hey its easy for feeding the critters. I got some pretty good shots of the birds this weekend it was SO WARM out i was in a T shirt. We also did a little more work on the huge aviary we a re building from big ceder poles me and my dad logged from a friends. They will have plenty of room come spring to take flight up to a very high perch as they LOVE to do!

Waving HI! to all the Folks on BYC

Orion's train (named my new pied peacock) is looking better and better by the day since i rescued him and his mate from very cramped quarters.

That pen is ...... GIGANTIC!
And we don't have any snow here in SD either, which is REALLY strange. The other day, we were pulling out fencing, it was so nice. Crazy!

Your pied peacock is very beautiful! I am sure they are very happy you saved them from their old cramped home! That new pen is looking great!

Thank you both. it is tons of work. but i try to divide up my time equally between each project, come spring i want to just branch off this main structure with breeding spaces for chickens, and other birds that I raise. as well as putting in a fish pond type river with a pump and all for the ducks to stay on.

Cant wait for eggs to start being laid!

Wow, so I'm not the only one that lives on the side of a hill where you have to cut a giant notch out of the earth with a tractor and move gobs of heavy rocks in order to be able to build level pens for the critters! That will be an awesome pen when it's completed, keep us updated with pics on the progress of it!

Your Peas are absolutely gorgeous... I want some Pieds soooo bad (whine whine whine). Love the rest of your critters too, you are makin' me want ducks tho... but I don't have a pond yet either. That's another notch that I'll have to dig out of the earth here first, lol dang it.

Thanks for sharing!
