    This the new pen... Its 14'X16' or 17'. I haven't measured it yet. The grass is just barely coming up. Hope my birds can keep up with it! :)

    The whole pen setup... On the right side a 14'X8' pen for whatever, quail next week. In the middle, 14'X24' pen for ducks, home to the madarins now. On the right, an unfinished 14'X16' or 17' pen. Has a 2' deep pond and grass is growing!

    Found it, Looks good Travis,
    Shoot that grass looks great to me, thats about how they like it, many struggle just to have it, so count yourself lucky there really.

    Thanks for the compliments! I love the area, right in the shadow of those Rocky Mountains! I better get some pics of sunrises and sunsets out on the Great Salt Lake over those same mountains... There is nothing like it.

    Aubrey, if you're ever out here we may have to go on a hunt. Its amazing!

    Love your signature phrase at the bottom of your post too by the way

    Very nice birds and aviary. I have the same situation! My grass is pretty tall in our aviary too with three pairs and babies....they just don't seem like they are eating it?

    Mine pick at it but never do any real damage to it. There are a couple corners without any grass still so I just planted some seed to see if they will let it grow. I'll let you know in a couple weeks.
