They go out tomorrow unless the day is good enough for paint. The slats on the top are a 4 x 2 foot side of a crib. 2 inches apart, inch thick. Cut some out so 5 iinch gap for them to drop through. End of the crib I use as a dog door between rooms, hinged. Waste not want not!!

I like it Hal Smile Smile waste not want not Wink Wink I made all my sputnicks here out of steel bed bases (6x3) & commerical type windows (multi story)glazed & 1/4inch thick glass for the roofs as such. Mistake I made I feel was having wood base floors as I wish I had used some of the steel mesh I had on hand at the time back then for the floors. cheers

It's good to see you like to re-cycle as much as you can Hal.

Why but it if you can reuse it!

Great news about young-red Hal.

It is a wonderful sunny afternoon here in frogland.

My lovely wife has take our old birds for a training toss. 60 miles - this will be the penultimate training toss before racing starts in 2 weeks time, for the majority of our old birds.

We have a couple of hens that spent the first 10 weeks of the year in our stock loft, producing us a round of babies each, with our two Olympic cocks. They are only going to 20 miles.

I will let you know what happens.

No. Acrylic/Alkyd exterior walnut. Deck and siding stain. Washes up (spray gun etc,) with warm soapy water. I went over the original siding also. Harsh weather is not good for it. Tends to flake. Should be done yearly.
