A few odds and sods to finish, but other jobs to do first. She who must be obeyed has spoken. :)

Plenty to do but not enough time to do it. I'll be all sorted though before the breeding starts in March.

As what will be my yearling team next year are at present all together in what is open plan it does have a dowelled divide if and when needed
The dimensions are approx. 32 feet x 8 feet but with the corridor left open and the aviary it equites to 32 feet x 13 feet
plenty of room to keep them fit in the winter lol
I will fit in 50 boxes for yearling cocks undecided whether they will be celibate or widowhood
May put them on widowhood as in the other loft I have 36 celibate cocks that age from 2-5 years of age
With perfect weather wind direction and returns forecast for 2018
Should be fun lol :emoticon-0136-giggle:

We got a new stock loft - 2 sections, one for stock and one for racing spare hens. They now need fitting out. We've bought new boxes for the stock section, and put up the perches for the hens, but we want to put another floor down on top of the plywood floor before anything goes in it. Race and stock are currently mixed in the race loft in the two sections that we have corridors to minimise chance of escapes. I would be embarrassed to tell you how many spare hens we have
:emoticon-0127-lipssealed:

But they did most of the point scoring in 2017 - so they will all be kept

Three sections require some work to bring them to completion. Two require to be finished before breeding in March, the other before racing in April. Lookout post also requires to be finished, then I'll know how the loft ventilation is working, but that will be next year's tweaks. :)

Pairing stock birds earlier than planned, so fitting new nest boxes into their section before January.
