I have a 24 count gourd rack Troyer horiz that is probably the birds favorite rack out of three. Its a standard 6/level rope pulley. I just got first two scouts today. I want to move it about 2 feet over and replace it with a Gemini.
Since I am late do you think it would still be ok? As long as I don't move it to the other side of yard or house, do they care by a few feet or a slightly different configuration. They were very happy when I put this one in in place of a aluminum house about 10 years ago.
