Overall the group seems to be doing well. I expanded the pen, and made one large pen for the females to roam around in. I was concerned about bullying, but so far I have only found them together twice. Otherwise, each seems to leave the other alone, and even in the night box they are always on opposite ends.

I added a gravel path to help walk around pen without smashing all of the plants, and both females seem to follow it to get to their individual feeding tiles. I also worked on raising the back of the enclosure another 2 feet so I can work on adding cameras to watch while I am away. I am hoping with the added height a camera will be able to survey most of the pen. I will try to update the installation when I figure out which camera would be best for the 5 foot height clearance.

I have heard of people using Various wattage infrared bulbs in the outdoor encosures. You could set it up on a timer so that they came om a separate times, and switch to higher watt bulbs as it got colder. Minimize fire risk if you go that route. Good luck and thanks foe the share.

Spring has really sprung in the pen, especially with the recent rains! I threw in clover and dandelion seeds and they are exploding. Lots of breeding activity and new growth lines seen on LF and LG in particular. Hopefully I will have breeding success this season, in the meantime here are some random photos of the group and the pen to enjoy.
