Reves Pheasant's and they aviary

Post by tygrysek75 » Sun Oct 06, 2013 12:12 pm

Hi,after long brake from my part.Been very busy with all work going on our house and lack of internet availability.
I had hatched this year Reve's Pheasant .Nice bunch but aggressive for chickens chick which I had to separate on third day.There is so much to tell you but I think will do that with pictures.I had almost completed aviary for them using old wood from our roof and leftover tiles.I think coming up nicely.
Here are the birds and their future locum :D

Looks great Tyg. It's good when you can re-use building materials. The birds look good too.

Tygrysek. That looks fantastic!
You ought to set up in business building poultry runs. Are you a professional builder by any chance??
Chickens are a girl's best friend (though diamonds would be nice too!)

Icemaiden ,thank you but I had't done all by myself.Had alot of help from guys who been working on our house :D My husband run building company and his guys have done alot of this.Mine idea was to use leftovers building materials from renovation of our house.I knew how this should look like and given to them all instructions.I had sanded all wood,painted,hamered down wiremesh ,fited the doors and guters. :D Actually I have just finished with gutters today as by mistake bought wrong bit.Still need to sort out the garden around aviary so it will look nice but wether at the moment do not help with this.I need to take some photos :D
