Nice big flight pens! I'd strongly recommend that you replace the chicken wire with 1/4" hardware cloth. Rats and mice can easily get through chicken wire, with deadly results for your birds!

Looks real good!

Best to replace that chicken wire, as mentioned, you can use the chicken wire for inside the coop to devide rooms. Predators can get thru it like aluminum foil.

Thanks for the concerns...

I have had Tumblers for the better part of 35 years, and have never had a preditor problem, as of yet... Not saying it doesn't happen...

We are just being cautious, better safe then sorry. I have heard about too many tragic stories, because it will never happen to me, but it can...eventually.

At least make sure to close the birds off from the aviary at night, with solid barrier or thick gage hardware cloth to the actual coop, and only allow them in their aviary in the day time.
