1. The Practical Aquaponics discussion forum has been in operation for the last 5 years...

    We have enjoyed giving this service free of charge however ongoing increasing financial costs of running this service is making it increasingly difficult. Up until now we have resisted advertising as a means of a revenue stream to help run this forum but it has become inevitable that extra revenue is required to run this forum.

    We have introduced a donate button to help offset the cost of running this forum. It is completely voluntary, but if you would like to donate, all donations would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Murray..

    Here is a great idea from a client of ours. I know it has possibly been done before heaps of times but I just want to share so someone else can see just how easy it is to make a really good chook pen. PVC pipe and bird netting.

    Thanks Murray, that is a really simply design. Those cross "pieces" are they wire or strong?

    By sight it looks like 25mm PVC?

    Regards, Martin.
