    Hi everyone my name is Mike and my wife Kelley we are new to the byc.(Its so nice to know there are other people out here that are like my wife and I) Kelley has talk me into taking care of unwanted,neglected birds of all sorts about a year ago.we have taken so many (hadicaped or disabled) birds that I have no choice but to rebuild and add on to what I already have. I will take pics of the work in progress, I have gotten a bunch of great Ideas from what I've seen here (I think I'll supersize some of them though). We already have 2 16 foot by 8 foot coops and a main runner 20 foot by 100 foot our back yard is huge most of it we will never use for anything esle since all the kids are all gone but one untill next year .thats when our nest will be empty. Kelley has gone full hearted at taking care of these birds some have even came from shelters miles away. this is where they'll call home and live happy. Part of all the materials and a small portion of food and small items have been donatied by freinds and family. Before I write a book this whole thing is manly about my wife and her dream. She wants a shelter/retirement home for the birds because the do it for dogs and cats and so on but not for the birds so to cut it short I'll posts pics and be sure to ask alot of questions. Thanks again

    It's been 7days of night and day work. I work in the day at my job then come home to the job I have started ( more labor intensive) so far we cannot figure out how to load our pics my be the camera ? but too make a long story short I have taken one of my buildings down and have leveled a spot for a 20 by 20 building and made the run another 20' wider have asked questions about building a large incubater in the building for the peafowl (main income for the supplies and feed ) no luck yet. Have already dug lines for electric and water [​IMG] All the post are set and roof is done and covered. will be putting the sides on sunday. hopefully we can move some of the birds in by monday. they are noy happy right now with the little space they are in now will try to get the pics posted of what we have so far thanks again
