    I am certainly impressed. Kudos to you for recycling and repurposing materials and doing such a great job making it so functional. I will be checking back to see the finished roosts.

    Do you get up to glen innes PP we are clearing up and have a big timber window....was to replace a roller door....but never got to the renovation. You might find it useful for that wet weather shed if you can arrange to pick it up.

    The last installment on the chicken house has been posted here. Sorry for the delay but the system is really working well.

    The birds are retired from the work in the mandalas matto and this is their life in retirement. We have had some stress in integrating several small flocks from the domes but they have worked it out fairly well.
    They range more widely than I imagined and do a great job on horse and cow poo and on crickets at the moment as well.

    Are you fencing them at all to contain the roaming PP?

    no fencing at this point Grahame. It seems to be under control but will remain an option.
