The supports are square metal tubing. I'm using 2" game netting on top and 1" game netting from FarmTek on the sides. I will use 3' chicken wire on the bottom for extra protection. The center divider will also be 1" netting with the 3' chicken wire and shade cloth for a visual barrier.
That is going to be a very nice place to hang out in. The peafowl
are going to be very at home there, which is what it takes to really get production. Are you going to put more than one cock to a pen. Sometimes it works and sometimes it does not. I knew a guy who bought a bunch of chicks and kept them all together in one big pin and they all did very well together. Size is important if you are keeping several cocks together. Pens like this take time to put together and now it is Spring time with a thousand other things to do, plant this, water that. Keep the pictures coming, and thanks.
I forgot to take pictures this week end of the progress. My worker has failed to show up for work 2 days in a row! Grrr! And the 1" netting is suposed to be 6.25', my enclosure is 10' tall, I calculated to have >1' overage, but the bottom layer isn't even close to the ground!!!!!
I plan on putting all of the birds in there for now, my other 2 males are only 2 years old and not showing agression, but that doesn't mean 'Postal' will remain cooperative.
I am not getting any more eggs, maybe the girls are unhappy closed up, while everyone else is wandering until I can get the enclosure completed.
OK, I get the dumb blonde award! I worked all weekend on the enclosure, kept my camera close at hand taking progress pictures....the SD card was not in the camera!
I have just now placed the card in the camera, and will take pictures ASAP!
I did move everyone in on Saturday night. All is well. I did have to move my purple 2 yr/ old male out because he kept shadowing my eldest hen. She was behaving stressed and wanted his added attention not to be an issue.
