    I went out to feed chickens and pigeons today and found one of my summer babies outside the aviary. Yup you guessed it, I found a hole. In the corner.
    I could not catch him and didn't know how he was going to get back in. Certainly he wasn't going back in that little hole.
    So I had to make a big hole for him. The aviary cloth is in two parts and tied together with plastic ties so I cut some off and opened it up.
    I locked everyone else up in the bunny coop so they could not escape too.
    WHEW! I back out an hour later and my baby came back.
