Post My simple bucket design
I have been trying all sorts of ways, not the conventional but did not have any luck, now I just did a simple one with buckets and 45 degrees and they are booming :D

Sometimes 'simple' is the best :)

Do have any problems with drainage?

Yes had some problems with drainage but I put in a bucket with holes and then I put some newspaper on the buttom, and now I am adding some leftovers of the chickens that is not wet so it will control de water in the bucket, if needed then I spray some water.

I am new to this forum, where do I ask questions when I have some?

Thanks.

Depends what your questions is about. Try to pick the most relevant subform (Cultivation, Trouble Shooting, etc.) for the subject of your question.

Or you can just post your question here and I'll move it if necessary.

I was using several cardboard pieces, but I just thought I could let the bsf stop deciding where to put their eggs and just put one, and just today in the afternoon I got eggs on both sides of the cardboard.

Looking Good jubahn!
If you have an old scale lying around it would be interesting to know how much food your BSF are consuming each day.

its kind of dificult, have a scale, but I feed them when I see they need to, I am looking at what is the best thing to feed them, I actually give them chicken manure, rabbit manure and food leftovers, I am trying some bread and would like to know which is the best food for them too grow better and faster, any idea?

Thanks.

Not sure about the grow fastest aspect but have you seen our What foods do BSF really like to eat, a list thread? (link)
