    What started out it's life in 1969 as a U-Haul van body, converted to a goat trailer in 1993, has finally become the housing for the Roo Pad. I still have some finishing touches such as painting the outside rear wall and finishing the forced ventilation system for nighttime. I will be making duct mufflers and installing fans to keep the air moving when they are closed up in the coop at night. With the elderly neighbors that I have and the coop only 30' from my bedroom window hopefully it will be peaceful at night. My neighbors all love my birds but they might not appreciate 22 roos serenading them at night. I will eventually be culling down to about 6 roos for breeding after they mature enough for me to pick the ones with the most desirable traits. The boys love their new diggs and are getting along just fine. They will be 5mos. old tomorrow.







    EDIT: changed 4mos. old to 5mos. old
