    Well the standard fly pens were brought from Mexico.They usually run about 30.to 40. dollars depending on the material and the quantity.We just added the wood to give it that better look.

    Re: Fly Pens

    I suggest building your fly pens with adjustable roast. Start from 3 feet up to your prepared height gradually changing it to 4, 5, and 6 feet. Leave it to 6 feet until he get used to it. The purpose is to build more wind specially if there is some hens roaming around outside. They will fly up and down to have a clear view of the hens. This is very effective if you are applying the rotation method of conditioning. During pointing, you gradually lower the roast back to 4 feet to conserve energy. I have seen these in small breeder in Oklahoma. He just throw some dry feed before he goes to work and let his show work by itself digging to the 4 inch deep straw all day..

    Those are some great ideas Sundowner!!! I will build them will with ajustable hieghtsbest idea I've heard yet!! The way Ihave built more wind before is to increase flys to the bench and walks up a walk board with a hen in a cage up top on a platform but your idea sounds easier ...maybe I can work with both. I put them in lower pen when I point them but But I liike your idea better.and yes, I do the same thing with the straw. Thanks again for the tips...makes so much sense!! I,m going your way...oh ..what do you think about mixing the fly bench/walk board and ajustable post??

    Re: Fly Pens

    I believed that bench work/fly pens combination will benefit both the handlers and the rooster as long as itís not overwork to avoid or minimize muscle bound. The objective is to create close relationship with your untamed warriors and win the trust. Itís also a good idea to have a small amount of feed or apple handy when you pick it up from fly pens and let it pick or bite off your hand. This technique is very effective also specially on man fighters. Always have a hen available in separate drop pen during pointing period when you feed. Physiologically, itís an effective method of maintaining agility or alertness. Every time you drop, the eagerness to see that hen lingers up to the moment of fight. It works for me in Arizona thatís why I am sharing it with both the newcomers and old timers alike. Happy Thanksgiving to Everybody.

    there is no need to make higher for a ply pen. there is a negative effect on this one.

    Would you like to share what is the negative effect of a higher flypen? What should be the ideal height then?

    Thanks for sharing!
