    Entire cookhouse insulated and humidity control full 2 weeks?

    Normally last 3 days I have mine in the cookhouse and start the humidity control. What if you have a insulated place for fly pens and the cocks get the same humidity and temperature from day 1 of keep to show day? What do you guys think would it work or wouldn’t see much of a difference rather than the last 3 days?

    They will regulate there moisture on there own with water in front of them and feed in their craw. It's when you start getting them empty that the weather can affect them. 3 days is plenty unless extreme heat or rain on point week. Then five days is good

    I don't know how sammy ( n c. ) points their cocks, but the cock house in an old grit and steel shows the cock house in the woods and off the ground with maybe a 10-12 inch opening all the way around the top ( lots of fresh air ).

    I knew a guy that turned his trailer house into a cockhouse and would keep the a/c running the last couple weeks .... he had drop pen for scratching and keep stalls , so they could stay inside the whole time . It didn't make much difference from what you could do the last few days .... it's hard to keep them from coming around too fast like that .
