Hey everyone,

So I wanted to do my best to follow all the steps in showing poultry, and part of that is the conditioning aspect. I wanted to make sure that my birds were used to being in cages, and on display and being handled. I also wanted them to be in a place where they would stay as clean as possible... so far so good.

So I collected some extra wire and zip ties, and with a budget of 30.00 I got the remaining materials and managed to whip up something that I thought would be suitable in a few hours.
Made from 2x3's 2inch wire mesh, zip ties and one sheet of OSB.
There is a total of 8 pens and each pen is 2ft x 2ft x 2ft, there is a cut out on each pen with a wire door to keep the bird in.

Here is a pic of my efforts...

I loved the video, I also really like the eight cages all 2 by 2, and that you did it for 30 bucks is amazing. The next one I make is going to follow the same plan as yours, two rows of four makes for perfect access while not letting them dirty or pick at each other. Well done.
cheers
