    We are investigating the use of sea cans (containers) for our clay bird storage.

    I seem to remember a post about ventilation on this, or another site, but cannot find it.

    Is there anyone out there that uses the containers for this purpose?

    We are particularly interested in how you ventilate them so the birds don't get damp.

    Any advice gratefully welcome.

    Topic came up in another thread and I just did a bit of research to come up with this. The above page is a straight shot to the storage page of White Flyer's website.

    Hope it is what you were looking for.

    We use them in Jamestown, CA.
    The two vent system works far better.
    We also have two vents in the doors.

    Do you locate the whirly gigs in the middle or the ends.
    I looked at their page and they suggest a vent in one end, and a whirrly gig at the other enabling the air to be drawn through the container.

    It seems to me that if you put the vents in the ends, and the whirl giggs in the centre you would get a better circulation of air.

    Our whirly things are actually pretty close to the ends. I'd say 3 or 4 feet.
    The doors have vents front and back.
    Vents/whirley's are set to come on when the inside temp exceeds the outside.
    Really works great. Even during the winter which can be mild out here.
    Stockton Trap and Skeet has the same setup and also works for them.
    Not sure where you're located, but the vents cut into the doors and back end are not all that big to prevent critters from getting in. We used "aviary cloth". Tight knit steel.
    Hope this helps.
