    A couple months back I started this project with a friend of mine. He had all the tools & equipment and all the knowledge of building. Myself, on the other hand, is clueless.

    I am building a pen for my pheasants (i only have 5 ringnecks) and was wondering if I could also put some pigeons in there also? Will the pheasants kill the pigeons or mess with the pigeons's nests? The pen will be 10x10 and 6 feet high.

    new coop by ktbug, on Flickr A little bit of work still needs to be done- mainly on the interior hutch. I wish I had used smaller poultry netting- I used 1" and wish I'd used 3/4". I was mainly concerned about rats, raccoons, and foxes. There are not many mice or snakes in the area. There is...

    Any insight mighty appreciated. Our two indoor, rescued racing pij have been through two nesting cycles together -- with fake eggs. All behavior seemed to follow "normal." Now, they are on their third nest, but with this cycle our male, Clive, went a little nuts with the nest building. (Clive...
